Franchise owners Nick Smith and Rodger Blake-Ward held a grand opening fundraiser from Wednesday, April 22 to Tuesday, April 28 to support Cox Mill High School, Ridge Road Middle School, Highland Creek Elementary School, D.A.R.E., Stoney Creek Elementary School, Mallard Creek High School, Carl Furr Elementary School, Countryside Montessori Elementary School, Countryside Montessori Middle School, Countryside Montessori High School, Hope Academy, Bradford Prepatory School, Jay Robinson High School, Corvian Community School, The Goddard School and Christ the King Catholic Secondary School.
The new restaurant, located at 8680 Concord Mills Blvd., circulated thousands of flyers throughout the community with various offers. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will make a $3 donation to the schools.
“Rodger and I are excited for the opportunity to support several different schools within the Concord community,” said Smith. “Supporting our local schools for our grand opening fundraiser is an opportunity to raise money for student programs and invite customers to experience the Jersey Mike’s culture of giving.”
Smith and Blake-Ward 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 $13 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 5th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $3 million for 150 local charities throughout the country.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. The company was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News 2014 Top 100 and continues to win best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.
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. Jersey Mike’s premium meats and cheeses are sliced on the spot, piled high on in-store baked bread and served up with a helping of neighborly banter from a dedicated and high-energy team.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
