Jersey Mike's Subs Raises Funds For Local Prep School at Grand Opening
Another Jersey Mike’s Subs will officially open its doors in Dallas with its grand opening on Wed., Nov. 5. This is the fifth store to open in the Dallas area, with a sixth slated to open in Flower Mound in mid-November.
The store, located at 13378 Preston Rd., is hosting a 5-day fundraiser for the Athletic Department of the Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas in honor of the grand opening. Customers who donate $1 to the charity will receive a free regular sub through Sun., Nov. 9.
“We have lived in Dallas for more than 10 years and we are thrilled to be opening this Jersey Mike’s store here in our own community,” said Amy Allen who operates the store with Hillary Davidson. “We know that a successful community takes good care of its children so we couldn’t think of a better fundraising recipient than this local school that does so much for kids.”
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.
“We believe every Jersey Mike’s has a responsibility to its local community and welcome everyone to participate in this fundraiser,” said Cancro. “Giving back and bringing our customers fresh, quality subs is what Jersey Mike’s is all about.”
Davidson, a self-described “non-sandwich eater,” got excited about opening a Jersey Mike’s store after trying one of the store’s delicious subs. “I don’t eat sandwiches, let alone those with oil and vinegar on them,” Davidson said, referring to the sub shop’s signature “Mike’s Way” preparation of lettuce, onions, tomatoes, oil, vinegar and spices. “But Amy convinced me to try one and I am so glad I did. I fell in love with the product and immediately resigned from my job to do this. It’s been a dream come true.”
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (Sundays 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.). You can contact this store directly at 972.385.9100.
