DAVENPORT, Iowa, Sept. 13, 2017 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Davenport on September 20. Franchise owners Aron and Camilla Lees held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 20 to Sunday, September 24 to support McKinley Elementary and also Monday, September 25 to Sunday, October 1 to support Sudlow Intermediate School.
The new restaurant, located at 2124 Kimberly Rd., circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to McKinley Elementary and Sudlow Intermediate School.
"We are so pleased to be able to support McKinley Elementary and Sudlow Intermediate School in the difference they make in the lives of the children of the Quad Cities," said Aron Lees. "We know the impact the teachers and staff of these local schools have on the children and what a difference they can make in their lives. We are extremely excited to be able to help them and create lifelong relationships with the staff, the children and their families."
The Leeses 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 $25 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 7th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $5.5 million for nearly 150 charities throughout the country.
