Jersey Mike's Subs Raises Funds For Boys & Girls Club At Grand Opening

Owner Celebrates with Free Subs

Jersey Mike's Subs opened its 9th store in the Dallas area.  Jersey Mike's owner, Eric Paletti, knows the importance of community relations and celebrated his new ties with the area during his grand opening on Wed., July 1.

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 5301 W. Lovers Lane, is hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., July 1 through Sun., July 5, with proceeds supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon could get a free regular sub with a $1 donation.  Coupons were distributed throughout the community and in local newspapers.  

"Jersey Mike's has developed a great rapport with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.  I wanted to continue building on that important relationship at the local level," Paletti said. "The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas are strong proponents of mentoring and I admire their hard work and results."

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.  "To succeed in business, and in life, we must give back," said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike's Founder and CEO.  "Eric Paletti will do both because he is very devoted to the community and we congratulate him on opening his first store."

Paletti became interested in Jersey Mike's when the first store opened in the Dallas area.  He was a frequent customer, and asked storeowner and Area Director Dalton Stewart how to get started.  Dalton suggested he begin by working in the store and he did so for over two years. 

There was a natural attraction to Jersey Mike's for Paletti.  "One of the finest qualities I found in Jersey Mike's is the mission of giving back," he said.  "When you make a difference in your community, everyone wins." 

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p..m on Sunday. You can contact this store directly at (214) 350-7611.
