Jersey Mike’s Subs is Expanding in Canada

Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh subs, has announced an agreement with Redberry Restaurants, one of Canada’s largest restaurant franchise operators, to open 300 Jersey Mike’s restaurants across Canada over the next 10 years. This marks the first major international expansion for Jersey Mike’s in its 68-year history.

Founded in 1956 at the Jersey Shore, Jersey Mike’s premium meats and cheeses are sliced on the spot and piled high on in-store baked bread. Fans love their subs made Mike’s Way® – fresh onions, lettuce and tomatoes are topped with a zing of “the juice,” a red wine vinegar and olive oil blend.

“We are proud to partner with Ken Otto and his team at Redberry,” said Peter Cancro, founder and CEO, Jersey Mike’s Franchise Systems, Inc. “Their extensive history and reputation in the restaurant business are second to none. Also critical to our company is that they share the same culture and mission statement: to give and make a difference. They are committed to their team members and their local communities.”

Redberry Restaurants is one of Canada’s largest QSR restaurant franchisees and one of Canada’s fastest-growing restaurant companies. They own and operate 180-plus restaurant locations across Canada under the BURGER KING® and Taco Bell brands. Over the next decade, they have signed agreements for 300 Jersey Mike’s restaurants across Canada in a combination of Redberry-owned-and-operated stores and supported franchisee locations.

There are currently two Jersey Mike’s Subs locations in Canada, in Kitchener and London, and five new locations set to open in Ontario this year. Redberry will purchase the two existing Jersey Mike’s locations, and they will be completely remodelled in early 2024 to reflect Jersey Mike’s new image.

“We’re thrilled that Jersey Mike’s entrusted us with bringing their iconic brand to Canada,” said Ken Otto, CEO of Redberry. “We resonated strongly with their culture, product, and mission, and are excited to ‘Make it Happen’ for both Jersey Mike’s and their Canadian fans.”
