Jersey Mike's Subs Teams Up With Georgia Tech's "move" Initiative For Grand Opening

Fundraising To Benefit "Taskforce for the Homeless"

Jersey Mike's Subs will officially open its doors in Atlanta next week.  Jersey Mike's owner, Hadi (Tony) Saraj, knows the importance of community relations and will celebrate his new ties with the area when he holds his grand opening on Thursday., Apr. 23

To commemorate the grand opening, the new restaurant, located at 1000 Northside Dr., will help raise funds for Georgia Tech University's Mobilizing Opportunities for Volunteer Experience (MOVE) initiative for the benefit of "Taskforce for the Homeless."   Special fundraising coupons will be distributed campus and anyone who brings one in and donates $1 to MOVE will receive a free regular sub.

"We are right in the heart of Georgia Tech student life here and so we really wanted to do something that helped them with their charitable concerns," Saraj said.  "MOVE is a great organization and we look forward to working with involved students on behalf of Taskforce for the Homeless."

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.  "We believe strongly in teaching the importance of serving the community and Georgia Tech is doing just that with its students and MOVE," said Jersey Mike's Founder and CEO Peter Cancro.  "Tony has done a great job of bringing his business together with a great organization and a worthy cause and we are certain they will come up with excellent results."

MOVE exists to serve the community as a whole by facilitating service activities by Georgia Tech's faculty, staff and students that will increase the participants' self worth, leadership abilities, value of diversity, and motivation to be involved in the community at large while at the same time meeting the needs of the community at large.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at (404) 724-0760.
