World Wide Technology (WWT), a market-leading global technology solution provider, today announced its partnership with Jersey Mikes Subs, the fastest-growing sandwich chain in the United States, to develop a next-generation digital experience for its customers, franchise owners and employees in 2019.
WWT Managing Director of Digital Josh Hogan presented plans to roll out Jersey Mikes digital transformation strategy to more than 1,500 employees, franchise owners and store managers at Jersey Mikes National Conference in Orlando.
Companies across all industries face the challenges of digital disruption and an increasing need to develop their own digital strategy to remain competitive in todays tech-driven environment, said Hogan. We are delighted to partner with Jersey Mikes, and harness WWTs expertise in leading consumer brands in this space, to develop customized solutions and help them achieve key goals in 2019.
Jersey Mikes investment in next-generation technology includes mobile, kiosk, point of sale and loyalty enhancements that scales with the companys pace of growth and continues to deliver best-in-class service and crave-worthy subs. The new technology upgrades will be designed to meet the needs of digital native customers who value being rewarded for store visits and who expect frictionless, faster speed of service as well as anytime-anywhere ordering.
Despite being a 62-year-old company, Jersey Mikes continues to be an early adopter when it comes to technology, said Rich Hope, Chief Marketing Officer, Jersey Mikes Franchise Systems, Inc. At Jersey Mikes, we focus on providing our customers with a fresh, high-quality sub sandwich the way they want it, and we look forward to partnering with WWT, a global technology leader, to enhance our overall digital offerings to provide a seamless Sub Above experience for our customers, franchise owners and employees.
Jersey Mikes, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, continues to lead the fast-casual restaurant industry, with 18 consecutive quarters of growth. That growth can be attributed to the companys ability to adapt to changing market conditions.
In the coming months, Jersey Mikes and WWT will continue to establish forward-thinking digital strategies and develop digitally transformative solutions to help drive growth, with an ultimate objective of opening the 2,000th Jersey Mikes store by late next year.
