Jersey Mike’s, a New Jersey-based sub shop, has announced it will be opening its new location on The Strip on May 26.

The sandwich franchise will replace Pita Pit, which closed its doors last spring. While they may have nearly 1,900 stores nationwide, this will be the only Tuscaloosa location.

Currently, the closest sub shops can be found in Hoover, Vestavia Hills, and Mountain Brook.

The restaurant announced its plans to open in February and is now excited to offer residents a chance to order “a sub above.”

The Strip will also be welcoming another addition later this year: a new, digitally-focused Taco Bell, which will be taking over the old China Master location near Rounders.
