The fast-casual sandwich franchise serves jumbo subs with all types of cold cuts and toppings. It is the 14th store opened by owner Danny Rosales, who said that he fell in love with the county when he was in Dawson for a visit. 

“I fell in love with the area coming up to visit my son’s race team up here, so we’re excited to come up here,” Danny Rosales said. 

His daughter Alexis Rosales, who is the restaurant’s director of operations, said that she and her father are both incredibly excited to finally open their newest location in Dawson County. 

“It’s been a long time coming,” Alexis Rosales said. “We love the area and we’re very excited to be here.” 

One thing that’s very important to their restaurant’s leadership, she said, is making sure that they are truly a part of the community and giving back as much as they can. 

“We want to get involved as much as possible in every community we have a store in,” Alexis Rosales said. “We want to give as much as we can to the community.”

One way they’re doing this right off the bat, she said, is offering free sub cards from Dec. 7 through Dec. 11 for those who make a minimum $3 donation to local nonprofit No One Alone, which provides shelter, safety and support services to victims of domestic violence and their children. The restaurant’s goal is to raise $2000 for the nonprofit.

“We want to give a minimum of $2000, so no matter what we come up with we’ll cover the difference,” Danny Rosales said. 

In the future, they plan to continue giving back to the community through fundraisers and other ways. 

The Dawson County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting for Jersey Mike’s on Dec. 6 during the store’s soft opening. Before officially cutting the ribbon, Dawson County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Mandy Power welcomed the Rosales family and their staff to the area, expressing her excitement to have the new restaurant finally open.

“We have heard excitement about this since the day the signs went up so we are very excited,” Power said. “We know that you will feel very warm and welcomed here in Dawsonville.” 

Jersey Mike’s is located at 145 Forest Boulevard Suite 425, in the Dawson Crossroads shopping center, and is open every day from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
