One of the most popular sub chains in the United States is finally about to make its way to Maine.

Jersey Mike's, which specializes in hot and cold subs, is set to open their first Maine location in Scarborough at 700 Gallery Blvd.

It's part of an aggressive expansion plan from Jersey Mike's, which is set to open nearly 200 new locations nationwide in 2020.

Jersey Mike's has grown in popularity thanks to their signature hot and cold sub choices. What began to set Jersey Mike's apart from other sandwich chains was the fact that they would slice the meat right there in front of you after your order.


Jersey Mike's hot subs, which are grilled fresh to order, include a variety of signature steak and cheese sub options. Their cold subs come in a wide variety as well, including the Jersey Shore's favorite and a sub called the Original Italian, which Mainers will find is nothing like they know as an original Italian right now.

They also have a signature addition to their sandwiches called "the juice" which is a blend of red wine vinegar and olive oil that can be added to any of their subs.

Jersey Mike's new location will be in the same plaza near Bob's Discount Furniture, Home Goods and Marshall's and next to Mattress Firm.

There was no specific opening date available as of this writing.
