Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, will open its first restaurant in Pigeon Forge with a fundraising event to benefit local charities.
Franchise owners Don Bauer and Philip Horn Jr. will celebrate the grand opening for Jersey Mike’s Subs, located at 2656 Parkway in Pigeon Forge, with a free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 15 to Sunday, June 19, 2016 to support the Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains and the Forever Parks Foundation.
The new restaurant is circulating 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains and the Forever Parks Foundation. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.
“Opening a Jersey Mike’s location in Pigeon Forge is a great opportunity for the brand,” said Bauer. “We are looking forward to serving new customers and making a difference in our local community. For the first five days that we are open we are holding a fundraiser to support the Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains as well as the Forever Parks Foundation. At Jersey Mike’s we believe in making a positive impact in our communities while serving a top quality sub sandwich and that’s exactly what we plan to do here in Pigeon Forge.”
Bauer and Horn 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 $18 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
