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

Owner Celebrates with Free Subs

Jersey Mike’s Subs opened its first store in Norco.  Jersey Mike’s owner Errol Talley knows the importance of community relations and celebrated his new ties with the area during his grand opening on June 8 and then again in August.

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 1411 Hamner Ave., in the Marketplace on Hamner, hosted two fundraisers.

The first fundraiser, took place from Wed., June 8 through Sun., June 12, benefiting the Blues Youth Soccer Club. Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 donation.  More than 5,000 coupons were distributed throughout the community.  

Then, from Monday, August 1 through Monday, August 15, Jersey Mike’s hosted a second fundraiser, with proceeds supporting the Norco Unified School District.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 donation.  More than 3,500 coupons were distributed throughout the community.  The purpose of the Norco Unified School District is to provide a quality education for all students within a secure and supportive environment. 

“One of our top priorities at Jersey Mike’s Subs is to be good community partners,” said Talley.  I am excited to bring the Jersey Mike’s experience and our giving-back culture to Norco.  I am passionate about working with both of these organizations and supporting the youth in the area to 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.  “To succeed in business, and in life, we must give back,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO.  “Errol cares greatly about the Norco community and hopes to make a difference here.  We are firmly behind him and congratulate Errol on opening his first Jersey Mike’s Subs.” 

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.  You can contact this store directly at (951) 279-6453.
