September 3, 2014 - Buffalo Grove, IL - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Buffalo Grove on August 20. Franchise owner Jay Punukollu held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 20 to Sunday, August 24 to support Buffalo Grove High School and Buffalo Grove Park District.
The new restaurant, located at 171 McHenry Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Buffalo Grove High School or Buffalo Grove Park District.
"At Jersey Mike's we're committed to making a difference in the community," said Punukollu. "Partnering with both Buffalo Grove High School and Buffalo Grove Park District for our grand opening fundraiser is an opportunity to raise money for two local causes and invite customers to try Jersey Mike's highly authentic product. We're happy to be part of this tight knit community, and we hope to form many lasting relationships with our customers, neighbors, and fellow businesses in the area."
Punukollu is an exemplary Jersey Mike's franchise owner who shares the company's commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is 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.

The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike's fans who crave their subs made Mike's Way® with the freshest vegetables – onions, lettuce and tomatoes – topped off with an exquisite zing of "the juice" – red wine vinegar and olive oil blended to perfection.
