March 27, 2017 // Franchising.com // Blacksburg, VA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Blacksburg on March 22. Franchise owners “Commissioner” Gordon Pannill, Charles “Mookie” Golden, and store operator Devin McMurray held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 22 to Sunday, March 26, to support the Intellectual Disabilities Agency of the New River Valley (IDANRV).
The new restaurant, located at 1450 S. Main Street, circulated 15,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to IDANRV.
“We look forward to bringing authentic Jersey Mike’s sub sandwiches to the Blacksburg and Virginia Tech communities,” said Golden. “During our grand opening fundraiser, we will be partnering with the Intellectual Disability Agency of the New River Valley, which is a non-profit that provides educational, recreational and developmental programs for children, youth and adults with intellectual disabilities. We look forward to sharing the Jersey Mike’s experience and continuing the spirit of giving to give.”
