The Centerton Square shopping center is getting a new sub shop.
A Jersey Mike’s location will open there Thursday, according to franchisees of the popular sub chain.
Starting Thursday, the restaurant will be open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, according to a press release.
Patrons can order using “any option imaginable,” said Matt Catania, co-owner of the new location. Options include takeout, delivery and, at least at first, indoor seating at 50 percent capacity due to COVID restrictions. The location will be able to seat 20 people at full capacity, according to Catania.
Customers can place delivery and pick-up orders on the Jersey Mike’s app. They can also make delivery orders through Uber Eats and DoorDash, and pick up orders over the phone by calling 856-924-6767.
Catania and his business partner, John Helm, own 29 other Jersey Mike’s locations around the state, including several in Burlington County.
But they had been eyeing the Centerton Square shopping center for a decade, Catania said. They had a chance at another Centerton spot a few years ago, but missed out. Last summer, a different space became available, and the partners jumped on it.
Centerton Square also has a Target, a Wegmans and a Starbucks, among other businesses.
“From a business perspective, it’s got everything you can imagine,” Catania said. “Great co-tenancy. Visibility. It’s like the town hub.”
The co-owners have hired 15 people from Mount Laurel and its surrounding area to staff their new place, including five full-time employees. All staff members will be wearing masks during their shifts for as long as the pandemic lasts, Catania said.
The first Jersey Mike’s location opened in Point Pleasant in 1956. There are now almost 2,000 stores in the United States.
Catania and Helm have been franchisees for 10 years. They are from Point Pleasant and remember the original location as a neighborhood hangout/lunch spot.
“We can’t wait,” he added.
