Jersey Mike's Opens Second El Cajon Location
Owners Celebrate With Free Sub Fundraiser
August 14, 2014 - El Cajon, CA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in El Cajon on July 30. Franchise owners Ray Ibrahim and Nabil Somo held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 30 to Sunday, August 3 to support the Eric Paredes Save a Life Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 2514 Jamacha Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Eric Paredes Save a Life Foundation.
Eric was a healthy Steele Canyon High School sophomore athlete who died suddenly and unexpectedly from Sudden Cardiac Arrest/Death (SCA/D) in 2009. His parents, Hector and Rhina Paredes, established EP Save a Life Foundation to honor him through their commitment to prevent this tragedy from happening to other families. The EP Save a Life Foundation is committed to preventing SCA in young people through awareness, education and action. Saving lives is paramount to their mission and prevention is their goal.
"At Jersey Mike's we are committed to making a difference in the community," said Ibrahim. "Working with Save a Life Foundation for our grand opening fundraiser is an opportunity to raise money for a great cause and invite customers to try Jersey Mike's highly authentic product."
Ibrahim and Somo are exemplary Jersey Mike's franchise owners who share the company's commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who are dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike's locations throughout the country have raised nearly $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 750,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
