Jersey Mike’s Subs Raises Funds For Local Schools at Grand Opening

Owner Celebrates with Free Subs

Jersey Mike’s Subs opened its first store in Lawton.  Jersey Mike’s owner Tyrone Muldowney knows the importance of community relations and celebrated his new ties with the area during his grand opening on April 13.  

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 2504 NW Cache Road in the Hamra Plaza, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wednesday, April 13 through Sunday, April 17, with proceeds supporting Lawton High School, Eisenhower High School and MacArthur High School.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 contribution.  More than 7,500 coupons were distributed throughout the community.

"I have been a small business owner for 35 years, owning my first business at the age of 19,” said Muldowney.  “I graduated from Lawton High School and my daughter will be going to Eisenhower High School in the fall.  My wife, Michelle and I also have 5-year-old twins who will be starting kindergarten in Lawton Public Schools in the fall.

“I firmly believe in supporting the community and specifically our educational system. When we provide excellence in education for our children, everyone in the community wins," he 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.  "We congratulate Tyrone Muldowney on the opening of his first store in Lawton," said Peter Cancro, founder and CEO of Jersey Mike's Franchise Systems.  "This is a great community and I know Tyrone cares about ensuring that all of Lawton’s children have a chance to succeed."

“I am very passionate about working with the local high schools near the store,” said Muldowney.  “All of these schools are great institutions and we look forward to joining them to help area students reach their full potential. 

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at (580) 699-8800.
