Jason's Deli is reopening its recently closed store at 4545 N. Oracle Road and will be giving away 1,000 free sandwiches on Monday.
Another location at 5420 E. Broadway Blvd., which also closed unexpectedly on Sunday, May 30, is expected to open in late 2010.
From the full press release:
In a surprising turn of events, Jason’s Deli will re-open on June 14th at the previous location on Oracle Road. Another location, on Broadway, is expected to open late in 2010. The previous franchisee closed on May 30 primarily due to insurmountable debt owed to numerous creditors.
“We are elated and hopeful that we can hire back the former employees,” stated Blake Parker, a regional director for the Jason’s Deli parent company. “In this day and age, you don’t expect to resolve landlord, electric, and City issues quickly, but that’s exactly what occurred. Honestly, my hat is off to the City of Tucson.”
Before re-opening the deli, Jason’s is attempting to contact and interview as many of the previous 85 employees as possible. “Clearly we want to give these folks the first shot, yet some may have already received job offers,” stated Mr. Parker.
In celebration of the opening, the first 1,000 people who go to the Jason’s Deli Oracle Road location on June 14th have the option to select one of the following sandwiches for free (a ham Po’Boy, a California Club or a quarter ham muffaletta). This offer is limited to one sandwich per person, only available for dine in orders, and only on the opening day.
