Jersey Mike’s Subs Raises Funds For Tyler Junior College Band At Grand Opening

Owners Celebrate with Free Subs

 Jersey Mike’s Subs opened its second store in Tyler.  Jersey Mike’s owners Bryan Selden and Jeff Worthen know the importance of community relations and celebrated their new ties with the area during their grand opening on April 27.  

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 1690 South Beckham Avenue, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., April 27 through Sun., May 1, with proceeds supporting the Tyler Junior College Band.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 contribution.  More than 5,000 coupons were distributed throughout the community.

“I am very passionate about working with Tyler Junior College near the store,” said Jeff Worthen.  “Tyler Junior College is a great institution and we look forward to joining them to help area students reach their full potential.”

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 believe every Jersey Mike’s has a responsibility to its local community,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO.  “Bryan and Jeff will make a real difference in Tyler with their commitment to giving back.  We wish them every success, and congratulate them on opening their second Jersey Mike’s Subs.”

“I have been a small business owner for more than 25 years and I firmly believe that giving back to the community, specifically the schools, is vital to succeed,” said Bryan Selden. "When we provide excellence in education, everyone in the community wins."

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at 903-747-3437.
