Jersey Mike’s Subs announces first Sioux Falls location

May 20, 2019

Jersey Mike’s Subs has found its first Sioux Falls location.

The national sandwich restaurant will open on the northeast corner of 57th Street and Louise Avenue in the former Klockers Mattress World space.

The mattress business closed recently after 20 years in business. Other tenants in the center include Verizon and Supercuts.

“57th and Louise is a natural lead-off location for Jersey Mike’s. It’s an extremely high-traffic corner,” according to Ryan Tysdal of Van Buskirk Cos., who represents Jersey Mike’s Subs.

According to city data, the combined traffic counts for the 57th and Louise intersection are almost 50,000 cars per day.

“To secure such a high-profile corner location was very fortunate timing for Jersey Mike’s,” Tysdal added. “Jersey Mike’s leased the space before it ever hit the market.”

Franchisee Andrew Ticknor expects to be open for business this fall. Ticknor’s second location is expected to be announced later this year and open in mid-2020.

Ticknor and his family are the owners of Record Keepers, a record-storage facility, and longtime fans of Jersey Mike’s Subs in other cities.

Ticknor’s father, Greg, is the president of Total Card Inc. and along with his brother, Jim, once co-owned Prime Time Burgers in Sioux Falls, which became Burger Time.

Jersey Mike’s has been looking for a Sioux Falls franchisee for years. The concept sells hot and cold subs and wraps, chips and desserts. Its signature sauce is a red wine vinegar and olive oil blend. There are more than 1,500 locations nationwide.

Tysdal announced the first lease today as he met with Jersey Mike’s at RECON, the retail industry’s largest convention, in Las Vegas.

“We’ve been meeting for, I think four years now, and we’ve just been waiting for them to secure a franchisee,” Tysdal said.

“Several parties danced around the opportunity, and finally Andrew came on board, and I think he’ll be a perfect franchisee. Now that we’ve got an owner for the market, we can get going.”

Construction will start in early June.

It likely will be the first of multiple locations in Sioux Falls, Tysdal said.

“As I’ve met with them at RECON, Jersey Mike’s love the market,” he said. “They look to ultimately have locations in several South Dakota cities, but obviously Sioux Falls is where we’ll start.”
