October 06, 2015 // Franchising.com // Sacramento, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Sacramento on September 30. Franchise owners Todd Russi, Daniel Russi and Carol Russi, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 30 to Sunday, October 4 to support UC Davis Medical Center Child Life Program.
The new restaurant, located at 2912 Fulton Avenue, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to UC Davis Medical Center Child Life Program.
“We’re looking forward to opening our doors in Sacramento on September 30th,” said Todd Russi. “I’ve been in the restaurant business for 15 years and what attracted me to Jersey Mike’s was the family-like atmosphere.” Todd’s favorite sub is the #13 The Original Italian, Daniel’s favorite sub is the #4 Cheese, Proscuittini & Cappacuolo, and Carol’s favorite sub is the #7 Turkey Breast & Provolone.
“For this grand opening, we will be doing a 5-day fundraiser to support the UC Davis Medical Center Child Life Program. I am a big fan of helping children because they are the future; this program promotes a positive attitude and gives the very best care possible. Please come visit during our grand opening to support a good cause!”
