Jersey Mike’s Subs Raises Funds For High School Athletics At Grand Opening

Owner Celebrates with Free Subs

Jersey Mike’s Subs opened its second location in Melbourne.  Jersey Mike’s owner Bryan Price knows the importance of community relations and celebrated his ties with the area during his grand opening on May 4.

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 1070 North Wickham Road, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wednesday, May 4 through Sunday, May 8, with proceeds supporting Eau Gallie High School Athletics.  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.

“We want to make an impact for the youth in our community,” said Price.  “It’s clear that sports play an important role in the advancement and discipline of a child’s education so we decided it would be the perfect place to get involved.  We are eager to help champion Eau Gallie High School and its Athletics Department.” 

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.  “Bryan Price is committed to helping the Melbourne community.  We congratulate him on his second store.”

Price was initially attracted to Jersey Mike’s because of the family atmosphere and product quality.  “After I met a few of the Jersey Mike’s team members at a local golf tournament, I knew I had to join the franchise.  The employees in the stores and in the home office are customer focused and friendly,” said Price. 

Price’s favorite Jersey Mike’s sub is the #6 – the famous Roast Beef and Provolone, Mike’s Way. “I grew up in Melbourne, it’s a great community, and I’m thrilled to be opening my second store here,” he said.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at (321) 622-8813.
