A Jersey favorite comes to Davenport

Jersey Mike's

A Jersey Mike's is set to open in late September next to the Fresh Thyme store in Kimberly Crossing shopping center in Davenport.

Jersey Mike's sub sandwich shop traces its roots to 1956 when Mike's Subs pioneered the sub sandwich in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. Soon, you'll find it in Davenport. Orion native Aron Lees and his wife Camilla are the co-franchisees of a Davenport location, opening Sept. 20 at 2124 E. Kimberly Road in Kimberly Crossing shopping center.
