New business spotlight on Jersey Mike’s

Jersey Mike’s is a submarine shop franchise business with several locations, including a recently opened site at the Basin Street Shopping Plaza, Williamsport.

“It’s more than just a neighborhood sub shop,” operating partner Paul Schwarzer said. “We have a variety of hot and cold subs.”

Since opening in August, the city eatery has seen its customers base steadily increase.

Patrons are coming for lunch, dinner and other times of day for a sub, cheesesteak or other type of sandwich.

“We are largely a take-out business,” he said. “We see a lot of Lycoming College students. We partner well with the college and the United Way.”

Customers can order online or by using a phone app.

But many patrons choose to eat on site.

The restaurant seats about 35 people.

Schwarzer noted that the catering side of the business is growing.

Attention to detail and serving customers are what help Jersey Mike’s stand out from other restaurants.

“We want to make sure the experience here is exceptional,” he said. “We want to make sure they come back with friends.”

Other Jersey Mike’s locations can be found in State College, Lewisburg, and York.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday thru Sunday.

Jersey Mike’s can be reached at 570-980-9312.
