Making A Sub For A Good Cause

Making A Sub For A Good Cause

It was a $100,000 sub sandwich for a good cause.

Last week, 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. It was just another chapter in a brand that believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same.

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.

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

Since 2010, Jersey Mike's locations throughout the country have raised nearly $13 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company's 5th Annual Jersey Mike's Month of Giving in March raised more than $3 million for 150 local charities throughout the country.
