Jersey Mike’s Founder Makes $100k Sub For No Kid Hungry

August 13, 2015 // Franchising.com // MANASQUAN, N.J. – Yesterday, Jersey Mike’s Subs Founder and CEO Peter Cancro fresh sliced a $100,000 sub for No Kid Hungry, an organization committed to ending childhood hunger.

Cancro was fulfilling a pledge he made in March while speaking at an industry conference. There, Cancro unexpectedly announced on stage in front of thousands of attendees that he would donate $100,000 to the charity if Tom Nelson, president of No Kid Hungry/Share Our Strength and David Jobe, president of Winsight Events, joined him at the company’s Jersey Shore home to make subs.

After a sub-making lesson yesterday, Cancro presented the check. The donation will provide 1 million healthy meals for kids in the U.S.
