A new sandwich shop will soon open in north Fayetteville.

A company spokesperson told us this month that New Jersey-based fast casual restaurant chain Jersey Mike’s Subs is planning to open its first restaurant in Fayetteville at 160 E. Joyce Blvd. near Guitar Center.

The restaurant focuses on “fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs,” and was named one of the fastest-growing chains in the country by Nation’s Restaurant News. The company currently has more than 2,500 locations open or in development.

Giving back to the community is a priority for the company as well, they said. Since 2010, locations throughout the country have raised more than $50 million for local charities.

Jersey Mike’s opened their first Northwest Arkansas location in Bentonville in 2018, and has since opened restaurants in Rogers and Springdale.

If all goes well, the new Fayetteville location will open sometime in December.
