The Jersey Mike’s Subs location planned in Fayetteville is getting closer to opening day.
A company spokesperson back in August told us that the New Jersey-based fast casual restaurant chain is planning to open its first restaurant in Fayetteville at 160 E. Joyce Blvd. near Guitar Center.
The location has been under construction, and the owners had originally hoped to open in December, but those plans were delayed.
Signs for the new restaurant are now up, and officials said the new plan is to have the restaurant open in early April.
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.
Jersey Mike’s opened their first Northwest Arkansas location in Bentonville in 2018, and has since opened restaurants in Rogers and Springdale.
