Jersey Mike's Subs Opens First Waco Location
Owners Celebrate With Free Sub Fundraiser
December 21, 2015 // Franchising.com // Waco, TX - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Waco on December 17. Franchise owners Steven and Joy McVean held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser Thursday, December 17 to Sunday, December 20 to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
The new restaurant, located at 1515 North Hewitt Drive, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
“One of the reasons we were initially drawn to Jersey Mike’s as a company, was their strong commitment to giving. We love that Jersey Mike’s encourages all of their franchisees to partner with a charity so that every Jersey Mike’s can make a difference locally and nationally,” said Joy McVean. “Recently, we lost a very special young man named Jake to suicide. Steve and I decided to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention with our grand opening fundraiser in order to honor Jake and his family. The statistics around suicide are staggering and the AFSP is a great resource for the entire community. It funds research, provides education and has extensive resources for survivors of suicide loss and people at risk.”
The McVeans 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.
