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

Owners Celebrate with Free Subs

Jersey Mike's Subs opened its second store in Concord.  This will be the first store for owners John and Lisa Townsend.  The Townsends know the importance of community relations and celebrated their new ties with the area during their grand opening on June 30, 2010.  

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 6028 Bayfield Parkway, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., June 30 through Sun., July 4, with proceeds supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus County.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 donation.  More than 5,000 coupons were distributed throughout the community.

"When I read the mission statement of the Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus County, 'to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens,' I knew we had to get involved," said John Townsend. "Helping to meet the development needs of the youth in our community is tremendously important."  

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.  "When you are an active contributor in the community it shows," said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike's founder and CEO.  "John and Lisa are committed to helping the children of the Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus County.  We congratulate them on their first store."

"Our goal is to give each customer the very best experience when they come through our doors" said Townsend.  "Lisa and I are proud to join the Jersey Mike's family and we are committed to serving the best subs in the country to the best community in the state."

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.  You can contact this store directly at (704) 792-0652.
