Jersey Mike's Subs Raises Funds For The Anna's House Foundation At Opening
Owner Celebrates with Free Subs
December 16, 2009 • Warr Acres, OK
Jersey Mike's Subs officially opened its doors in Warr Acres, Okla. Jersey Mike's owner, Scott Warfel knows the importance of community involvement and celebrated his new ties with the area during his grand opening on Dec. 16. This is Warfel's fourth store in the Oklahoma City market and his first in Warr Acres.
To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located in the MacArthur Court Shopping Center at 3800 N. MacArthur Blvd, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., December 16 through Sun., Dec. 20, with proceeds supporting The Anna's House Foundation. Jersey Mike's reached out to the community and distributed promotional coupons to build lasting ties with the surrounding area.
"We share The Anna's House Foundation's commitment to our local children and invite the community to help us raise funds in support of this outstanding organization," said Warfel. The Anna's House Foundation was formed to combat the damage caused from the continually changing living environments faced by some 1,685 Oklahoma County babies and foster children under the age of four in the foster care system. The Foundation's first priority is to provide stable and loving homes for the youngest of the young in foster care.
Reaching out to the community is a key component of Jersey Mike's mission. All franchise owners find ways to support their neighbors and employees are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents as well. "If we offer our best and give back to our communities, everybody stands to benefit," said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike's Founder and CEO. "Scott Warfel is actively giving back because he wants to see the community succeed. We congratulate Scott on his opening."
"Jersey Mike's Subs and Warr Acres are a terrific match," said Warfel. "This is my fourth store in the Oklahoma City market and I owe it all to our loyal customers. We strive to give each and every customer the best experience possible each and every time they come through our doors. Jersey Mike's is synonymous with quality and a great experience and we are looking forward to bringing that to the great people of the Warr Acre area."
