June 04, 2009 // Franchising.com // Jersey Mike's Subs will open another location in Charleston next week. Business partners Ryan Delman, Jay Yates, Dave Bockstahler and Jeremy Abell know the importance of community relations and will celebrate their new ties with the area when they hold their grand opening on Wed., June 3. This is the sixth Jersey Mike's store in the Charleston area.
To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 8983 University Blvd (University Park), North Charleston, is hosting a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., June 3 through Sun., June 7, with proceeds supporting Charleston Southern University Athletic Department. Anyone who has a fundraising coupon can get a free regular sub with a $1 donation. Coupons are being distributed throughout the community and on campus.
"We are thrilled to be a new neighbor here in CSU territory," said Delman. "The sports program plays such an important role in developing qualities like leadership and teamwork for students that we wanted to support the athletic department. We invite the local community to join us in this fundraiser."
Reaching out to the community is a key component of Jersey Mike's mission. All franchise owners find ways to support their neighbors and employees are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents as well. "This is quite an experienced team here in Charleston," said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike's Founder and CEO. "Ryan, Jay, Dave and Jeremy are passionate about quality products and customer service, and they all share a commitment to giving back to their community."
The team is based in South Carolina. Delman, Yates and Abell live in Charleston and Bockstahler resides in Greenville, SC.
