Jersey Mike’s, which was founded in New Jersey in 1956, has more than 600 franchise locations open and under development nationwide.
The menu consists of cold and hot subs, wraps and salads that are priced between $4 and $10.
The Pittsfield Township location is under construction and should open in about 12 weeks, said Josie Capozzi, vice president of franchise relations for Jersey Mike’s.
The space was listed with Angela Arcori and Bruce Baja of Signature Associates for an annual $19 per square foot.
The site has two retail buildings, which are owned by Rudolph Libbe Properties. Other tenants include Leo’s Coney Island and Parda Credit Union. There still are several available suites that have remained unoccupied since the buildings were constructed in 2007.
The reason: “Who knows whether it’s the location, the economy, rent or combination of all the above,” Arcori said.
She predicts that with the “great” traffic counts on Carpenter Road and the major retail stores - like Meijer, Target, Home Depot and Lowe's - near the center, Jersey Mike’s will do “very well.”
“I think that what Jersey Mike’s offers is an affordable, quality product, which in this market, that’s what people are looking for,” she added.
