This past fall we brought you the news that the popular sub sandwich shop "Jersey Mike's Subs" was expanding its franchise, yet again, from its home base in New Jersey to four more spots here in Maine.

One of those proposed spots was in the old Elevation Burger building at 479 Stillwater Avenue in Bangor.

This new location is in the same area as Hobby Lobby, Buffalo Wild Wings, and the recently opened Smoke and Steel BBQ restaurant.

Taking a quick swing through the parking lot this week, one can see that while the signs for the restaurant are up, there are still quite a few renovations taking place within the actual building.

There are piles of construction supplies parked out in front of the storefront. And if you look inside the shop, it's been completely gutted. It would appear that the plan is to redesign the entire space.

While there's been no opening date released to the public yet, a representative of Jersey Mike's Subs had this to say:

"This store is still in development. Please stay tuned for details!"

The franchise is also working to open stores in Saco, Topsham, and Brunswick. According to their website, the company has more than 2,000 locations nationwide.

"The Jersey Mike's franchise has 2,034 locations open and many more in development across the United States each week."
