Biz Buzz: Jersey Mike's to open in Baxter

BLAEDC to host annual meeting via Zoom session on March 9.


Jersey Mike's, with hot and cold sub sandwiches, sides, drinks and desserts and catering, is planning on opening soon in Baxter.

Jersey Mike's reports it's the red wine vinegar and olive oil blend that gives its subs an "exquisite zing." The company reports its produce is grown, packed and shipped locally where available with fresh bread baked daily in the stores.

The store is slated to open at 14203 Edgewood Drive, Suite B-2 by Chipotle and Five Guys restaurants.

Brainerd Lakes Area Economic Development Corp. annual meeting will be a Zoom video conference this year. The featured speaker is Shirley Bloomfield. The event is 7:30-9 a.m. March 9.

Bloomfield is chief executive officer of NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association, representing nearly 850 independent telecommunications companies that are leading innovation in rural and small-town America. She has more than 30 years of experience.


"Bloomfield is an expert on the role of federal communications policies in sustaining the vitality of rural and remote communities and the benefits rural broadband networks bring to millions of American families, businesses and the national economy," BLAEDC reported.

Bloomfield is a strong supporter of national efforts to improve the resilience and reliability of critical electric and telecommunications infrastructure and serves as a board member of the National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative and the Southeast Reliability Corporation," BLAEDC reported.
