Gottheimer Makes Sandwiches for Subway Customers in Mahwah
As Part of “Josh on the Job” Tour, Gottheimer Makes Subs For Constituents
Friday, November 2, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) visited Subway in Mahwah as the latest stop in his “Josh on the Job” tour.
“There is nothing small about the impact of small businesses on the North Jersey economy. They’re where the jobs are. They’re the key to strong economic growth,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “Subway in Mahwah has fresh, quality ingredients and a great staff. They also provide great franchising opportunities, which is how so many people in this country get their first job or their start in small business. In Congress, I will continue to fight to lower taxes, cut red tape, and invest in New Jersey infrastructure so that small businesses like Subway can come, stay, and thrive here.”
In 1965, Dr. Peter Buck and Fred DeLuca opened their first Subway restaurant in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where they served fresh, affordable, made to order sandwiches. The popularity of the sandwiches and the brand continued to grow over the decades. Today, the Subway brand is the world’s largest submarine sandwich chain with more than 40,000 locations around the world.
