Jersey Mike’s, Ed­i­ble Ar­range­ments set to open in Cov­ing­ton

Two new busi­nesses are com­ing to Cov­ing­ton, ex­pand­ing lo­cal op­tions for food and ed­i­ble gifts.

The rib­bon cut­ting for Jersey Mike’s sub shop is sched­uled for July 22 at 10 a.m. on In­dus­trial Blvd Cov­ing­ton.

The lo­cal fran­chise has part­nered with the Cov­ing­ton Fam­ily YMCA for their Grand Open­ing Fundraiser.

For the first five days fol­low­ing the grand open­ing, Jersey Mike’s team will go into the com­mu­nity to dis­trib­ute free sand­wich coupons of­fer­ing a free sub with a $1 do­na­tion to the lo­cal YMCA.

Owner Chris Brown said he was so inspired by the world the YMCA does, he in­tends to match what­ever is raised.

“Jersey Mike’s has a long history of giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity and that’s how we celebrate all of our grand open­ings across the coun­try,” said Brown, adding the money will likely go to­wards sup­port­ing a va­ri­ety of pro­grams, in­clud­ing sum­mer camp and af­ter school pro­grams.

He said he chose Cov­ing­ton for its prox­im­ity to Athens and At­lanta, and the “busi­ness friendly” en­vi­ron­ment.

“It’s been a plea­sure to build this store,” he said.

Two doors down, Ed­i­ble Ar­range­ments is also pre­par­ing to welcome new cus­tomers, although the ex­act date of open­ing is un­known at this time.
