April 01, 2010 // Franchising.com // Jersey Mike's Subs officially opened its doors in Hoover, AL. Jersey Mike's owner, Chris Decker knows the importance of community relations and celebrated his ties with the area when he held his grand opening on February 3, 2010.
To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 1851 Montgomery Highway, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., February 3 through Sun., February 7, with proceeds supporting The Exceptional Foundation. Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 donation. Coupons were distributed throughout the community and in local newspapers.
"The Exceptional Foundation's mission is to meet the social and recreational needs of the mentally and/or physically challenged individuals in the greater Birmingham Area," said Decker. "We share that commitment to our neighbors and invite the community in to help us raise funds to support the Foundation's good work. We look forward to getting to know our neighbors."
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. "Chris Decker has shown that he cares about Hoover and its families and we congratulate him on his newest store."
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday-Saturday and 11a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. You can contact this store directly at (205) 987-7115.
