Jersey Mike’s Subs Raises Funds For Christmas Connection At Grand Opening

Owner Celebrates with Free Subs

Jersey Mike’s Subs has opened its twelfth store in the Oklahoma City area.  Jersey Mike’s owner Amy Brown knows the importance of community relations and celebrated her ties with the area during her grand opening on Nov. 10. 

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 6401 Northwest Expressway, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., Nov. 10 through Sun., Nov. 14, with proceeds supporting Christmas Connection.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $2 contribution.  More than 10,000 coupons were distributed throughout the community and in local newspapers.

“One of our top priorities at Jersey Mike’s Subs is to be a caring partner in the community,” said Brown.  “As I learned about the Christmas Connection, I just knew we could help. Christmas Connection is dedicated to serving the less fortunate families and senior citizens of central Oklahoma.  It provides a place where people are able to shop with dignity and respect and there is a volunteer network of hundreds of caring, loving volunteers. This fundraiser will help an important underserved segment of our population so we want to invite our neighbors to come in and join us to support the Christmas Connection,” she said.

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.  “Amy Brown is committed to helping the Oklahoma City community.  We congratulate Amy on her third store.”

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Sunday. You can contact this store directly at (405) 721-8888.
