The day has finally arrived, a day I have been looking forward to since I heard the news...

Jersey Mike's sandwich shop is finally opening in El Paso. I had my first Jersey Mike's sandwich when I was visiting my brother in Florida and I was in love. When I travel to Austin to see my sister, I always make a point to grab a sub during my trip. What keeps me coming back? That delicious Jersey Mike's "Juice," a blend of red wine vinegar and olive oil that gives their sandwiches its tangy difference. If you haven't tried one of their delicious sandwiches you are missing out! We found out in the beginning of October that Jersey Mike's was opening soon in El Paso and people were excited to try the new spot. Now the time has come and Jersey Mike's is ready to open and feed the people their savory subs.

Jersey Mike's grand opening will be tomorrow, Wednesday November 6th at 10 a.m. according to the El Paso Times. Owners Abelardo Gonzalez and his sister Gabriela Arzate say that giving back to the community is important to them, as well as creating a family atmosphere at Jersey Mike's. To celebrate their grand opening, Jersey Mike employees have been going around town handing out free sandwich coupons with a $2 donation to charity. The money will be given to Braden Aboud Memorial Foundation. The coupons will be valid from Wednesday until Sunday, November 10.

The El Paso Jersey Mike's location will carry the traditional sandwich options seen at Jersey Mike's but will also incorporate traditional borderland flavors like green chile. Jersey Mikes is located at 6450 North Desert Boulevard and they are open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. You can call them at (915) 249-6855.
