Over the years the Jersey Mike’s Subs owners and operators across the country “have raised over $67 million for more than 200 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.”
And it all started in North Texas. As Jersey Mike’s President Hoyt Jones explained to Forbes contributor Simon Mainwaring, “Around 2009, Dalton Stewart, one of our area directors franchisees in the Dallas market, was connected with the Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer founder, Cindy Brinker. Dalton said, ‘Let’s see if we can make this more than just a one-day event,’ and that’s how the Month of Giving started. Other franchisees heard about it and one of our National Advisory Council members said, ‘Maybe we should think about doing this across the country.’”
They did just that and haven’t looked back.
This past year Jersey Mike’s Founder Peter Cancro and his wife Tatiana Cancro celebrated their philanthropy by not only serving as honorary co-chairs of the Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer’s 40th Anniversary Gala on Saturday, April 30, at Dallas Arts District Mansion, but Tatiana, Peter and Dalton surprised all with a check for $1M.
While the 2023 Jersey Mike’s month of giving is winding down, it was announced that in addition to the month of donations, the DFW Jersey Mike’s will give 100% of all sales on Wednesday, March 29.
According to Peter, “I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your family to visit Jersey Mike’s Sub throughout the month of Mark, and especially on the Day of Giving when 100% of sales – every penny – goes to help a great local cause.”
The offer includes purchases throughout the day including catering. So, why not get the folks in your office to “sub” in to help kids battling cancer.
