The new restaurant, located at 9820 S. 71st Plaza, circulated thousands of coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Papillion-La Vista High School, La Vista Junior High School, Papillion-La Vista South High School, or Papillion Junior High School.
“At Jersey Mike’s we are committed to making a difference in the community,” said Marcotte. “Supporting our local schools for our grand opening fundraiser is an opportunity to raise money for student programs and invite customers to try Jersey Mike’s highly authentic product.”
Marcotte and George are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners and operating partners 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 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
