Currently, Wild Flour Bakery brand gluten free subs rolls are available as an option for customers in more than 63 Jersey Mike’s locations throughout New Jersey and the metro New York area, as well as six in Philadelphia.

The proof and bake sub rolls, with a delicious Tuscan Herb flavor, come from Wild Flour Bakery LLC of Boulder, Colo. Just like Jersey Mike’s original sub rolls, this gluten free version arrives as dough and is baked fresh in-store each day.

The restaurants have dedicated pans for baking the gluten free rolls, reducing the risk of cross contamination with other subs. Additionally, Jersey Mike’s team members wear new gloves when handling the rolls and use knives and other utensils that haven’t touched other bread products when slicing the gluten free rolls.

“Gluten free living appeals to a growing number of Americans,” said Jersey Mike’s President Hoyt Jones.  “We hear from former sub lovers who are now gluten free that they miss their Jersey Mike’s subs as well as from those who have never eaten a sub sandwich. We’re happy we can now say: welcome to ‘the juice’!”

Wild Flour sells the industry’s only purely yeast-raised, artisan, gluten-free pizza dough ball and sandwich roll portions that bake and taste just like wheat. Wild Four sub roll can be used as a substitute for any hot or cold subs on Jersey Mike’s menu and can be made Mike’s Way® with the freshest vegetables – onions, lettuce and tomatoes – topped off with an exquisite zing of “the juice” – red wine vinegar and olive oil blended to perfection.

In 2016, for the third year in a row, Jersey Mike’s was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News Top 100. The company placed #5 in the 25 Best Fast-Food Chains in America (2016) ranking by Business Insider and Restaurant Business. Additionally, Jersey Mike’s was voted the best sandwich chain in America, with more than 10,000 votes cast, in a 2016 poll by Ranker.

Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $18 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. In 2016, the company’s 6th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $4 million for 180 charities throughout the country.
