Jersey Mike’s Subs Raises Funds For La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation And Childrens Hospital Los Angeles

Owners Celebrate With Free Subs

Jersey Mike's Subs officially open its doors in La Cañada. Jersey Mike's owners John Simmons, Kristi Simmons, Allan Simmons and Libby Simmons know the importance of community involvement and celebrated their new ties with the area during their grand opening on Wed.,   Jan. 6.  

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 711 Foothill Blvd., hosted a 5-day fundraiser to benefit La Canada Flintridge Educational Foundation and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.  Anyone with a fundraising coupon received a free regular sub for a $1 contribution from Wed., Jan. 6 through Thursday, Jan. 7.  Coupons were distributed throughout the community and in local newspapers.

The La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation (LCFEF) was founded to provide a sustainable source of funding for the local public school. "We share that commitment to our local children and invite the community in to help us raise funds to support the school's good work.  We look forward to getting to know our neighbors," said John Simmons.

Childrens Hospital Los Angeles is a nonprofit, academic, pediatric medical center.  It provides the highest quality health care for children who are the sickest and most seriously injured.  "It's been very exciting to become part of this community and we wanted to show our appreciation by supporting this great organization that helps out so many kids," said Allan Simmons. 

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.   "Every community deserves local businesses that are invested in their success," said Peter Cancro, founder and CEO of Jersey Mike's Franchise Systems.  "The Simmons' have shown that they care about La Cañada and its families -- we congratulate them on their first store."

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.  You can contact this store directly at (818) 790-5050.
