Jersey Mike’s Subs Raises Funds For Boys & Girls Clubs At Grand Opening

Owners Celebrate with Free Subs

Jersey Mike’s Subs officially opened its first store in Solana Beach.  Jersey Mike’s owners Kevin Kenny, Patrick Kenny, and David Kenny know the importance of community relations and celebrated their new ties with the area during their grand opening on July 28. 

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 915 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., July 28 through Sun., Aug 1, with proceeds supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 contribution.  More than 10,000 coupons were distributed throughout the community. 

“With this fundraiser, we want to support the youth of our community.  The Boys & Girls Clubs offer programs that promote and enhance the development of children by encouraging a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence,” said Kevin Kenny.  “In recent years, I have taken part in various triathlons around the country and the Boys & Girls Clubs have been my training hub.  I have had the opportunity to meet many great children who rely on these facilities, and I feel an obligation to help out,” said Kenny. 

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.  “The Kenny’s commitment to their community is inspiring,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO.  “When we give back to the communities we serve, everyone benefits.  We congratulate Kevin and his team on their new store.”

Kevin Kenny grew up at the Jersey Shore, where he was only a mile away from a Jersey Mike’s location.  He was initially attracted to Jersey Mike’s because of the atmosphere and the quality of the food. “I have a lot of great memories with friends and family while enjoying a Jersey Mike’s sub.  We always had subs for special events – like football games!  Solana is an incredible community with lots of great businesses.  I am looking forward to bringing the number one sub sandwich concept to the area,” said Kenny.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Sunday. You can contact this store directly at (858) 259-9111.

Jersey Mike’s, a sub sandwich franchise with more than 475 stores open and under development nationwide, has a long history of community involvement and support.  Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s serves authentic Northeast-style subs on fresh baked bread – the same recipe it started with over 50 years ago.  The company’s mission is to bring its customers the highest quality, freshest made sub in the industry and give back to the communities in which it operates.
