July 22, 2011 // Franchising.com // Clarksville, TN - Jersey Mike's Subs opened its 25th store in the Nashville market. Jersey Mike's owner Jeff Horn knows the importance of community relations and celebrated his new ties with the area during his grand opening on July 20, 2010.
To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 2808 Wilma Rudolph Blvd., hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., July 20 through Sun., July 24, with proceeds supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 contribution. More than 5,000 coupons were distributed throughout the community.
"One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime," said Horn. "I would like to invite the entire community to join with us during our grand opening celebration fundraiser for Susan G. Komen. The fight against all forms of cancer is very important to me, particularly the fight for a cure for breast cancer. My mother-in-law is a breast cancer survivor and I want to do all that we can to help find a cure."
Additionally, in May, Jersey Mike's launched a six-month national fundraiser, "Mike's Way to a Cure®," benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. A percentage of sales of specially branded plastic cups as part of a "Pink Ribbon Combo" or of individual fountain drinks is donated to the charity. One hundred percent of sales of "Mike's Way to a Cure" T-shirts also go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
"Nashville has welcomed Jersey Mike's enthusiastically and we are honored to open our 25th location in Clarksville," said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike's Founder and CEO. "This is Jeff's fourth location. He is an excellent neighbor, committed to serving the best sub sandwich out there and dedicated to helping his local community."
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at (931) 245-0961.
