Jersey Mike's Sub Opens Third Poway Location
POWAY, Calif., Nov. 23, 2018 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Poway on November 28. Franchise owners Steve Leonard, Fred Downey, and Drew Appel held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 28 to Sunday, December 2 to support Cancer for College.
The new restaurant, located at 13305 Poway Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Cancer for College
Cancer for College was formed in 1993 by Craig Pollard as a senior project while at the USC Business School. Craig was a two-time cancer survivor and witnessed firsthand the financial impact cancer can have on a family and the hope a college education can provide to a survivor.
“I have had the privilege of knowing the man behind the cause, the founder of Cancer for College—Craig Pollard,” said Leonard. “Craig, a two-time cancer survivor, is not only an incredible mentor and visionary, but he provides resolute inspiration for so many young people with cancer.” Leonard and his team have partnered with this worthy cause for all five of their previous grand openings.
Leonard, Downey, and Appel are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners who share the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who are dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $34 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 8th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised over $6 million for more than 170 charities throughout the country.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. Jersey Mike’s was named the country’s fastest-growing Limited Service Chain and fastest-growing sandwich chain in the 2018 Nation’s Restaurant News Top 100.
The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike’s fans who crave their subs made Mike’s Way® with the freshest vegetables – onions, lettuce and tomatoes – topped off with an exquisite zing of “the juice” – red wine vinegar and olive oil blended to perfection. Jersey Mike’s premium meats and cheeses are sliced on the spot, piled high on in-store baked bread and served up with a helping of neighborly banter from a dedicated and high-energy team.
Jersey Mike’s is always looking for outstanding candidates to join its winning team. Dedicated to a culture of giving, the team is a perfect blend of talent, trust, teamwork, and a shared vision.
