Jersey Mike's Subs Raises Funds For Cherokee Touchdown Club At Grand Opening

Owner Celebrates with Free Subs

Jersey Mike's Subs will officially open its doors in Canton, Ga. next week. Jersey Mike's owners, Lori and Daniel Hagaman, know the importance of community relations and will celebrate their new business ties with Canton when they hold their grand opening on Wed., August 20.

The store, located at 149 Reinhardt College Parkway, is hosting a 5-day fundraiser for the Cherokee Touchdown Club, the Cherokee Warriors' booster club, in honor of the grand opening. Customers who donate $1 to the Touchdown Club will receive a free regular sub through Sun., August 24.

"My manager and I are born and raised in Canton and we both graduated from Cherokee High School so we are thrilled to support our favorite team," Lori Hagaman said. "Giving back to our community is what it's all about."

According to Peter Cancro, founder and CEO of Jersey Mike's Franchise Systems, 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.

"You can sell the best products in town, but if you don't become a part of the community that you serve, you will never be a success," Cancro said. "Lori and Daniel Hagaman care a great deal about this community, and especially want to see every child reach his or her potential. I congratulate them on this new store and applaud them for their commitment to the community."

Store hours are 10:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sundays). Jersey Mike's Subs has been serving its authentic New Jersey submarine sandwiches for more than a half-century. Known for its Jersey-style subs, made "Mike's Way" with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature blend of olive oil, red wine vinegar and spices, each franchise uses only private labeled meats and cheeses that are sliced fresh for each sandwich and piled high on bread baked in the store each day.

The original Mike's Subs opened in Point Pleasant, NJ in 1956.? Today, Jersey Mike's has more than 400 locations open and in-development in 26 states coast-to-coast. You can contact this store directly at 678-493-0006.
