December 26, 2017 // Franchising.com // ENCINITAS, Calif. - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Encinitas on December 20. Franchise owners Kevin Kenny, Patrick Kenny, and David Kenny held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 20 to Sunday, December 24 to support Make A Wish Foundation-San Diego.
The new restaurant, located at 138 Encinitas Blvd., circulated 7500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the Make A Wish Foundation.
“At Jersey Mike’s we are committed to making a difference in the community,” said Kevin Kenny. “For the first five days we are open, we will be raising money for the Make A Wish Foundation. If you have not donated in the past, now is the perfect time! Everyone here has been so welcoming to us and we are excited to build and grow alongside such a great community.”
The Kenny brothers 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 $25 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 7th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $5.5 million for nearly 150 charities throughout the country.
