The dough will be rising as Jerry's Subs & Pizza plans to expand with about 30 new sites in the Baltimore-Washington area.

The expansion is expected to cost about $2 million and generate about 80 full-time and 120 part-time jobs, most paying from $5 to $8 an hour, the company said.

Jerry's, a privately held retailer out of Gaithersburg that already has about 90 franchises in Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia and Milwaukee, expects to open by year's end about 25 Jerry's Express counters about half in Baltimore suburbs in gas stations, airports, convenience stores and colleges. The company currently runs 10 Jerry's Express counters ranging from 120 to 200 square feet in size.

The Express stores are "a way of seeding into new markets," said Dave Terzian, vice president of the parent company, Jerry's Systems Inc. and one of the business' four owners. "It's often hard to break into new markets."

Four to five traditional stores, about 2,000 square feet in size, also are planned in the Baltimore area over the next several months. The chain already operates about a dozen stores in the area.
