Jersey Mike's Subs Opens Second Reading Location
READING, Pa., March 15, 2019 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Reading on March 20. Franchise owners Gerrit and Dee Curran held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 20 to Sunday, March 24 to support Laney’s Legacy of Hope.
The new restaurant, located at 2733 Paper Mill Road, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the Laney’s Legacy of Hope.
"We are very excited to be opening our second Reading location and to be joining the greater Wyomissing community,” said Gerrit. “We have chosen to partner with Laney's Legacy of Hope for a grand opening fundraiser so that we can help play a part in the fight against pediatric cancer. Laney's Legacy of Hope is instrumental in changing the lives of many children and families in the greater Wyomissing area and we are eager to invite the community to join in on this fundraising endeavor!”
