Jersey Mike’s has not officially disclosed the exact recipe for their secret sauce or “The Juice” as it is called. The juice from Jersey Mike’s is a blend of olive oil and red wine vinegar. The exact proportions are 3 parts olive oil to 2 parts vinegar, but you can adjust to your own taste. The juice is also flavored with a small amount of oregano and salt. But the exact combination of these ingredients is probably the real secret.

The juice adds a distinct and signature touch to Jersey Mike’s sandwiches and is one of my favorite parts of visiting the sandwich shop. You can order this on your sandwich or on the side in a small t0-go cup with a lid.

Does Jersey Mike’s make their own rolls?

Jersey Mike’s bakes their white and whole wheat bread fresh in store every day. But the gluten-free rolls are not made baked in the store. Why not? Because there could be cross-contamination of gluten across different breads if they were made in the same facility.

The chain collaborated with Udi’s brand for these gluten-free rolls, produced in Denver by Boulder Brands. The gluten-free rolls arrive in a sealed bag to ensure they are not contaminated after arrival to the Jersey Mike’s location.

Michael Manzo, COO of Jersey Mike’s Franchise Systems, mentioned that the concept originated from a franchisee whose daughter suffers from celiac disease. After successful pilot tests, they decided to roll it out nationally. Ahead of this launch, the company is investing significantly in training their staff to integrate this new offering seamlessly into their operations.

Can you ask for a toasted sub at Jersey Mike’s?

Typically, Jersey Mike’s primarily serves room-temperature or cold subs. However, they do offer the option to have certain cold subs heated or warmed upon request. However this process is not the same as toasting.

When you request a sub to be heated or warmed, the staff at Jersey Mike’s will use a specialized process to slightly warm the bread and melt the cheese (if applicable) without fully toasting it. This ensures that the sub retains its soft and fresh characteristics while adding subtle warmth to the ingredients.

It’s important to note that not all subs taste great made hot. For example, lettuce doesn’t hold up well to the heating process. As a result, not all subs on the menu are served hot. If you prefer a fully toasted sub, you may want to explore the hot subs section of Jersey Mike’s menu, which includes a variety of delicious options that are specially designed to be toasted and served warm like the Philly Cheese Steak.
