Jersey Mike's Subs Raises Funds For Ravenwood High School At Grand Opening

Another Jersey Mike’s Subs will officially open its doors in Franklin this week. Jersey Mike’s owner Jim Wardrop knows the importance of community relations and will celebrate his growing ties with Franklin as part of his grand opening on Wed., Jan. 21. This is Wardrop’s second Jersey Mike’s store in Franklin. He has operated the Jersey Mike’s at 2000 Mallory Lane since January 2006.

To commemorate the grand opening, the new restaurant, located at 1175 Meridian Blvd., #110, is hosting a 5-day fundraiser to benefit Ravenwood High School. Anyone who has a fundraising coupon can get a free regular sub for a $1 donation from Jan. 21 through Jan. 25. Coupons are being distributed throughout the community and in local newspapers.

“I moved to Franklin with my first Jersey Mike’s store and I love it here,” Wardrop said. “I’m very excited to contribute to the growing Cool Springs community here and I encourage everyone to come out in support of the kids of Ravenwood High School and enjoy a free sub.”

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.

“We believe every Jersey Mike’s has a responsibility to its local community and welcome everyone to participate in this fundraiser,” said Cancro “Jim is succeeding in Franklin because of his entrepreneurial spirit, his focus on his customers and his attention to providing a fresh, quality product. We congratulate him on opening this second store and applaud his ongoing support of the community.”

Store hours are 10:00 a.m. to 9 p.m., Mon. to Sat. and 11:00 p.m. to 7 p.m., Sundays. You can contact this store at (615) 472-1741.
