Jersey Mike’s Subs Raises Funds For Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer At Grand Opening

Owners Celebrate with Free Subs

Jersey Mike’s Subs officially opened its sixth store in Dallas, TX, which makes thirteen restaurants in the greater Dallas area.  Jersey Mike’s owners, Mike Riley and Mike Kevlin know the importance of community relations and celebrated their new ties in area during their grand opening on July 28.

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 3001 Knox Street Suite 107, in the Knox Park Village, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., July 28 through Sun., Aug. 1, with proceeds supporting Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 donation.  Coupons were distributed throughout the community and in local newspapers.  

“Investing in the health of the children in our community means a lot to us,” said Mike Riley. “Our fellow Dallas Jersey Mike’s Subs locations have worked with Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer many times over the years and we proudly continued that tradition during the opening of our location at 8411 Preston Road.  We raised $1,592 in April and hope to do even more through this opening,” said Riley.  The mission of Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer is to invest in the lives of children by funding cancer research, by healing the soul through fun experiences and by advocating for a cancer-free tomorrow. 

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.  “We believe every Jersey Mike’s has a responsibility to its local community,” said Peter Cancro, Founder and CEO of Jersey Mike’s.  “Mike Riley and Mike Kevlin are making a difference with their commitment to give back.  We wish them every success.”

This will be Riley and Kevlin’s second Jersey Mike’s Subs location to open in just three months. Riley was initially attracted to Jersey Mike’s because of the product quality and the fact that the franchise gives back to the community. “We’re psyched to be opening our second store. Our team is ready to make delicious subs and be a solid community partner,” said Riley.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Sunday. You can contact this store directly at (214) 520-7827.
