THURSDAY, Nov. 14 — Jersey Giant has new digs: Lansing’s eastside. Since replacing Subway earlier this month, Jersey Giant has strutted onto a block that includes hotbeds of sandwich consumers such as Lansing Catholic High School and Sparrow Hospital.
General manager Chris Chase said purchasing a property that used to be a sandwich shop was a “no-brainer” for the sub tycoons at Jersey Giant.
“They’re set up basically the same. We just had to rip out the old counter and put ours in. When a restaurant takes over another restaurant it’s always a good thing,” Chase said.
Chase mentioned the process has been done before in Grand Rapids, where Jersey Giant has replaced old Blimpie locations.
The manager also emphasized that Jersey Giant is more than happy to get its feet wet in a new Lansing neighborhood. “There’s a lot of draw; it’s a good area I think,” Chase said.
But all of that is just trimmings to the real meat of the issue, will this Jersey Giant deliver the same taste Mid-Michigan has grown to crave? It’s a safe bet.
“We haven’t brought it over yet, but we will probably do the corned beef and pastrami sandwiches that we’ve done in the past,” Chase said.
