Jersey Mike’s Subs Teams Up with 120+ Charities for 5th Annual Month of Giving in March

100% of Sales Go to Charities on March 25 “Day of Giving”

Introduction
Month of Giving

This March, Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its authentic fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, is joining forces with more than 120 local charities for the company’s 5th Annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign. Last year’s Month of Giving raised $2.1 million for more than 100 different charities nationwide and this year Jersey Mike’s hope to raise even more.

During the month of March, all are invited to come into their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and make a donation to that location’s designated charity partner. Charities include hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more. To date the annual program has raised more than $5 million for these organizations.

The campaign will culminate in the nationwide event, Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 25 when 100 percent of the day’s sales are donated to the local partner charity. For a list of participating restaurants and for more information on charity partners, please visit www.jerseymikes.com/mog.

“I would like to extend a personal invitation to come in and enjoy a Jersey Mike’s sub during our Month of Giving,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old. “This year we hope to raise more than $2.5 million to support these local causes so we can bring hope to all those involved with the charities and make a difference in people’s lives.”

“Giving…making a difference in someone’s life” has been the mission of Jersey Mike’s from the beginning. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

Jersey Mike’s believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same, a philosophy that has fueled the sub sandwich chain’s popularity.

Following its successful recipe of deliberate, well-considered expansion, Jersey Mike’s has more than doubled in size in just three years. Last year, Jersey Mike’s opened 155 new locations with unit growth of 20 percent. Started in 1956, the sub chain now has more than 1,300 restaurants open and under development nationwide.

Jersey Mike’s, a fast-casual sub sandwich franchise with more than 1,300 locations open and under development nationwide, believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same. Jersey Mike’s offers a sub above, serving authentic fresh sliced subs on freshly baked bread – the same recipe it started with in 1956 – and is passionate about giving back to its local communities.
