Jersey Mike's Subs Raises Funds for Schools at Grand Opening

Owners Celebrate with Free Subs

Jersey Mike's Subs officially opened its doors in Calabasas, the 45th location in California to date.  Jersey Mike's owners, Joe and Lisa Sutter know the importance of community relations and celebrated their new ties with the area during their grand opening on June 9, 2010.

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 26799 Agoura Road (Summit at Calabasas), hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., June 9 through Sun., June 13, with proceeds supporting Lupin Hill Elementary School and Arthur E. Wright Middle School.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 donation to either school.  Coupons were distributed throughout the community and in local newspapers.

"We firmly believe that as a small business owner it is our responsibility to help support the community. For us, helping the children and schools have always been second nature," said Sutter.  "Lupin Hill Elementary School and Arthur E. Wright Middle School have been very important to us.  Our two older daughters graduated from both schools and our youngest is now attending Lupin Hill Elementary.  We are really pleased to support both these great schools, which have  

been instrumental in our lives."

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, Jersey Mike's founder and CEO.  "The Sutter's have shown that they care about Calabasas and its families, and we congratulate them on their first store."

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday - Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays. You can contact this store directly at (818) 880-2600.
