Jersey Mike arrives at Orange Beach in early 2022
(OBA®) – Orange Beach, AL – An “above submarine” is coming to Orange Beach, possibly as early as February 2022.
Chan Echols of Labe Restaurants said his company plans to open a Jersey Mike’s in Orange Beach in the Palm Point Mall west of Publix. And, they are already looking to hire managers and other employees. Anyone interested should send an email to
“We’re going to need managers and everything else for the Orange Beach store and we plan to train them at the Foley site,” Echols said. “Like everyone else at the moment, we are recruiting.
Echols said that like other Jersey Mike’s owned by Labe restaurants, they plan to be active in the community.
“Our motto is a submarine above,” Echols said. “We believe that in our product as well as in supporting our community. At the grand opening we will be holding a fundraiser for a local charity that we will do for our grand opening. We have what we call a Giving Day which is the last Wednesday in March every year where we donate 100 percent of every penny that goes into the store to a local charity. Not just the product, but every penny.
Echols said this restaurant will be based on the same concept as stores across the country, including offering gluten-free bread.
“Our product is high quality meat, it is high quality cheese,” he said. “We cut everything in front of the customer. Nothing is prepackaged. Our hot subs that we actually cook on our flattop right in front of the customer. There is no microwave or toaster at Jersey Mike’s.
Besides Foley’s location, Echols said Labe Restaurants has about eight other restaurants in central Alabama and Georgia. There are currently stores in Daphne and Pensacola and there are over 1,900 Jersey Mike’s sub-stores nationwide.
