Jersey Mike's Subs Raises Funds For St. Joseph's/candler Hospital At Grand Opening

Owners Celebrate With Free Subs

Jersey Mike's Subs opened a second location in Savannah, GA.  Franchisees Ryan Delman and Chris Brown, along with their business partner Lee Snodgrass, know the importance of community relations and celebrated their new ties with the downtown area during their grand opening on Wed., Dec. 2, 2009.   The first Savannah store opened in March.

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 7400 Abercorn St., Suite 707, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., Dec. 2 through Sun., Dec. 6, with proceeds supporting St. Joseph's/Candler Hospital.  Anyone with a fundraising coupon received a free regular sub with a minimum $1 donation.  Coupons were distributed throughout the community and in local newspapers.  

"We are excited to be opening this downtown Savannah store after getting such a great response from our customers at our original Whitemarsh Center location," said Delman.  "St. Joseph's/Candler Hospital has been a good neighbor to us since we opened and does really important work in the area.  We hope everyone in the area will come out and help us support them."

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.  "Despite their youth, this team has a wealth of experience and enthusiasm - and most importantly, they care about the communities they serve," said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike's Founder and CEO.  "They are truly committed to making a difference in Savannah and we know they will bring a lot to the community."

Brown (27) and Snodgrass (26) live in Savannah.  Delman (34) resides in Charleston S.C.  

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday. You can contact this store directly at 912-355-3077.
