New restaurant opens doors at Trailwinds Village

The first restaurant has opened its doors for business at the Trailwinds Village.

Jersey Mike’s, the popular sandwich chain that originated in New Jersey, is the newest addition to the development located across from Pinellas Plaza.

The sandwich shop is the second location in the area, joining its sister store in the Rolling Acres Plaza near Spanish Springs Town Square.

Villagers were already lining up at restaurant as of Wednesday morning.

Jersey Mike’s is the first restaurant to open at Trailwinds Village

Jersey Mike’s joins a slate of other businesses that have opened over the last year at the new development, including Circle K, AldiABC Liquor and Lowe’s.

This past November, Villages-News.com learned that a Wendy’s and Taco Bell would join the development, in addition to a mystery grocery store with indications suggesting it may be a Publix. 

Two additional stores adjacent to Jersey Mike’s have opened in the last month, including a nail salon.
