Jersey Mike's Subs Raises Funds For Carroll Athletics Boosters At Grand Opening

Owner Celebrates with Free Subs

Jersey Mike's Subs will officially open its doors in Southlake, Texas next week. Jersey Mike's owners, Mitchell and Donna Wegner, know the importance of community relations and will celebrate their new business ties with Southlake when they hold their grand opening on Wed., August 20.

The store, located at 410 West Southlake Boulevard, is hosting a 5-day fundraiser for Carroll Athletics Boosters in honor of the grand opening. Customers who donate $1 to the Boosters will receive a free regular sub through Sun., August 24.

"I'm excited to take an active role in the community starting with supporting our high school," said Mitchell Wegner who moved here three years ago from New Jersey. "Everyone here loves our local high school football team, the Dragons, and so we will also donate 10 percent of our earnings on Friday nights from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. throughout the football season."

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. "Mitchell and Donna Wegner care a great deal about the 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 a.m. - 9 p.m., daily. 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 817-488-9090.
