Jersey Mike’s Subs In St. Charles Raises Funds For St. Charles East High School and Wasco Baseball at Grand Opening

Free Subs with Minimum $1 Donation

Jersey Mike’s Subs opened its first store in St. Charles.  Jersey Mike’s owner Jim Shipman knows the importance of community relations and celebrated his new ties with the area during the grand opening on April 20.  

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 2540 E. Main Street in St. Charles, Ill., hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., April 20 through Sun., April 24, with proceeds supporting St. Charles East High School Booster Club and Wasco Baseball.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 contribution.  More than 6,000 coupons were distributed throughout the community.

This is the second Jersey Mike’s store that Shipman has opened in the last year.  He also has a store in Geneva and is exploring plans to open additional stores in the coming years. “Through the store in Geneva we have organized numerous successful fundraisers for local schools and non-profit organizations.  We feel that this is the best way for us to give back to our community,” said Shipman. “We are passionate about becoming a partner with the families and organizations in Fox Valley and feel privileged to be able to help in a meaningful way.”

“Jim continually shows how to run a successful business,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO.  “Certainly, the key to that success has been his passion for education and a willingness to support the community.   We congratulate Jim on opening his second Jersey Mike’s Subs location.”

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday – Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. You can contact this store directly at (630) 443-1300.
