Jersey Mike’s hopes to open in May in the space formerly occupied by Kent Pharmacy

Jersey Mike’s, famous for their authentic Northeast-style sub sandwiches, has officially announced they will open a restaurant in the Milford Square Shopping Center at 641 North Dupont Boulevard, in the former Kent Pharmacy location. The franchise is owned by Anthony Tignola and Andrew Heymann. Anthony’s wife, Jess, and Andrew’s wife, Amanda, will also be involved in the operation of the new restaurant.

“My family and I moved from New Jersey seven years ago,” Anthony said. “My wife and I saw this as an opportunity to be a bigger part of the community and share the product and service that we know to be Jersey Mike’s from our time growing up in Brick, New Jersey. We were fortunate enough to have a close family friend, Andrew, who has been a dedicated member of the Jersey Mike’s team for many years, share our vision in pursuing this business adventure and opening our first Jersey Mike’s together. Andrew’s wife, Amanda, is also involved.”

Anthony felt that this was a great opportunity to give back to the town that our families were establishing roots in and hope to participate in the many donation programs in order to support schools, recreational programs and organizations that make Milford what it is.

“At Jersey Mike’s we are focused on our promise to be “A Sub Above”,” Anthony said. “We serve authentic fresh sliced/fresh grilled sub sandwiches on in-store freshly baked bread, the same recipe the company started with in 1956. We recommend that our customers order their subs our signature “Mike’s Way” with fresh onions, lettuce and tomatoes topped off with an exquisite zing of “the juice,” red wine vinegar and olive oil. It’s an unbeatable taste.”

Anthony and Andrew hope to open the new location in May and although they are not hiring at the present time, they will be posting job opportunities around the beginning of March. They plan to employ 14 to 18 team members at both full- and part-time positions.

“Not only do we promise to be a “A Sub Above,” we also take great pride in our customer service and the morale of our team/store,” Anthony said. “This helps ensure that our customers not only receive a great sub, but also a great experience while becoming lifelong valued customers.”

Jersey Mike’s is committed to their mission statement “Giving…making a difference in someone’s life.” Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $90 million for local charities and they look forward to supporting Milford organizations the same way.
