Ever been to Jersey Mike’s?

Hello all, I just had a great eating experience at Jersey Mike’s Sub Restaurant.  It was my first trip there and frankly I was a bit skeptical. . .I’ve eaten at Subway, Togo’s, Jimmy John’s, Quizno’s and other “Sub” sandwich shops, but I was immediately impressed by the place.

We were greeted by the Manager, Mike Spiegel.  He is from Jersey.  Yes, I was in Jersey Mike’s, talking with Jersey Mike.  He let us sample some fresh cut cappacuolo and proscuittini while we were deciding.  I have to be honest, when a business goes a step further and talks to me, rather than just stands there and takes my order, I feel a bit special and it makes me interested.

So after a long look at the menu, Mike talked me into a hot Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich.  A large hunk of steak was immediately slapped on the grill behind him, then he got the onions and peppers going.  After a few minutes of churning the sizzling components together, he added the cheese, diced it up a little more, then moved the meat mixture to a fresh soft roll.

I was ready.  Maybe it’s because it’s only 65 degrees out today, or just that the smell of the place was whetting my appetite, but I went into this with open arms.

Mike tossed in a couple of fresh cookies “because we were rookies” (get it: cookie, rookie) and I got down to business.  That was by far the best Philly Sandwich I’ve ever had.  Mike checked up on us and I almost ordered a second sandwich but then I remembered that there’s always tomorrow.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve never been to an east coast boardwalk and sampled the sandwiches there, and I concede that.  However I know good food and this is now at the top of my list.

If you have a Jersey Mike’s in your area, don’t drive by thinking that it’s just another sandwich shop.  Stop in, grab a Philly Cheesesteak, and tell them that Ryan sent ya  😉  www.jerseymikes.com

OK, I just got back and now I’m making myself feel hungry again.  Let me move onto a special that might entice you.  We’re offering $5 off any iPod battery installation.  Now until October 31st, 2008.  Just use coupon code “PHILLY” online and it’s adjust your total before checkout!

Have a great week, Ryan

2 new technicians land at Mission Repair!

Hello all- it’s been a while since my last update, and let me explain myself. We’ve been growing rapidly and finding ourselves in need of a few more technicians.

Believe me, it’s not easy to interview and find the right person. We look for energetic, knowledgeable and friendly folks that can represent our business and help our customers get their items back to normal. The last thing that we want to do it fall short of our promise: to provide first class MacBook and iPod service in a fast and efficient manner.

So to help us on our quest, we’ve brought on Dave Gaede and Ian Butterbaugh. These guys are Mac enthusiasts and are learning the “Mission Repair” way of life quickly! These guys are top-notch technicians and are a real joy to be around. They have brought a fresh air to our tech room and we are very excited at their progress so far!

So let’s give them a little challenge. Hmmm, I feel a special coupon coming on here. . .gotta be something good to give these guys some experience. How about this:

Any iPod battery service you get $5 off. Yup, that sounds like a good one. Let’s take a week, give these guys a new direction, and get them a batch of iPod batteries in for repair. Here’s the iPod Battery deal of the week:

$5 off any iPod Battery installation. Use coupon code “NEWTECH” and it’ll instantly remove $5 from your online order until August 22nd. If you prefer to speak to someone to place your order, that’s no problem. Just mention the coupon code when you call in!

Thanks, have a great weekend, Ryan
