March 03, 2010 // Franchising.com // Stevenson Ranch, CA - Jersey Mike's Subs has officially opened its forty third location in California. Jersey Mike's owner, Stephen Youlios knows the importance of community relations and celebrated his ties with the area during the opening on March 3, 2010.
To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 25660 The Old Road, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., March 3 through Sun., March 7, with proceeds supporting West Ranch High school. Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a donation to West Ranch High school. Coupons were distributed throughout the community.
"I wanted to support to the local high school where our store is located. I feel a responsibility to give something back to the community that has already given so much to me. The donations from the coupons will go directly to West Ranch High School," said Youlios. West Ranch High School is committed to challenging and motivating each student to achieve excellence and become a responsible and valuable member of society. Through relationships, rigor, and relevance, West Ranch High School promotes integrity, distinction, and vision.
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. "Every community deserves local businesses that are invested in its success," said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike's founder and CEO. "Stephen Youlios has shown that he cares about Stevenson Ranch and its families -- we congratulate him on his newest store."
