Jersey Mike's Subs Raises Funds For Plano Independent School District At Grand Opening

Jersey Mike’s Subs will officially open its doors in Plano next week. Jersey Mike’s owner, Steven Zeigler, will operate the store with his son Adam. Knowing the importance of community relations, Zeigler will celebrate his new ties with Plano when he holds a grand opening on Wed., Oct. 1.

The store, located at 1881 North Central Expressway, is hosting a 5-day fundraiser for the Plano Independent School District Education Foundation in honor of the grand opening. Customers who donate $1 to the charity will receive a free regular sub through Sun., Oct. 5.

“After years of relocating all over the country, our family decided to lay down roots in North Texas and we believe in playing an active role in our community,” Zeigler said. “The school system is the foundation of our youth and we want to benefit as many kids as possible through helping the Plano Independent School District.”

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. “Steven Zeigler cares a great deal about the community, and especially wants to see every child reach his or her potential. I congratulate Steven on this new store and applaud him for his commitment to the community.”

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (Sat., 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sun., 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.). You can contact this store directly at 972.509.1881.
