A giant 50- foot sub sandwich will invade the sidewalks of Jersey City April 4th when Blimpie® (www.blimpie.com/50centblimpiebest/index.html), the iconic sub chain started in NJ, celebrates its 50th birthday.
The birthday bash kicks off at 10:30 AM, Friday, April 4th, with the unveiling of the 50-foot sub – free to enjoy by anyone who stops by the Blimpie store at 558-560 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ 07306. All proceeds from this Jersey City’s store’s sales on April 4 will go to the local chapter of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America®, a group near and dear to the heart of Blimpie founder, Tony Conza. Additionally that day, all Blimpie stores nationwide, will sell their regular-sized Blimpie Best® subs for just 50 cents to the first 200 customers in each location; the price point symbolizing and celebrating 50 years of amazing subs.
