Jersey Mike’s Opening First Location in Portland, Maine, This Week
Just a couple years ago, one of the fastest growing chain restaurants in America, Jersey Mike's, had a grand total of zero locations in Maine. Fast forward to now, and Jersey Mike's aggressive expansion into Vacationland is continuing at a rapid pace. The sandwich chain burst onto the scene last year by opening three locations in Scarborough, Windham, and Brunswick. Jersey Mike's has continued their aggressive plan in Maine by opening in Auburn, Bangor, Topsham, and now Portland/Westbrook.
Jersey Mike's is set for their grand opening in Portland on Wednesday, April 19. Jersey Mike's is located in the end cap of the Pine Tree Shopping Center in Portland, just a couple doors down from Big Lots. That shopping center has seen a lot of different chapters in its existence and could use a popular quick service restaurant to enhance some regular traffic. The signage for the restaurant has been up for months, and now they're officially ready to open.
Shared on Facebook by Canal School, in celebration of their grand opening in Portland, Jersey's Mike's will donate 100% of the day's sales to the Canal School in Westbrook.
The Portland location of Jersey Mike's will join a handful of other restaurants that have recently opened on the Portland/Westbrook line. The Westbrook Crossing plaza has seen the new Rio Bravo restaurant. Across the street at Rock Row, Firehouse Subs and Cowbell have opened as well.
Jersey Mike's isn't finished with their sprawling Maine expansion after their Portland location opens. Plans are in place for the sandwich chain to open restaurants in Saco, Augusta, and Falmouth in the not too distant future.
