From April 1 through May 15, Jersey Mike's subs, a national restaurant franchise, is donating $2 from every regular-sized sub purchase at 11 locations throughout Connecticut to Susan G. Komen Southern New England to support local community grant programs and breast cancer research. Purchasers must present a coupon in order to secure the donation, available at KomenSouthernNewEngland.org.
Jersey Mike's is relatively new to Connecticut, with shops opening locally in the last 18 months. Most Jersey Mike's locations are owned by Paradigm Investment Group through a partnership between Brian Kelley (La Jolla, Calif.) and local partners, Troy Davidson (NYC), Brian O’Hagan (Greenwich). When the franchise expanded to several Connecticut locations, Carl Pinkard, National Director for Paradigm, contacted Komen Southern New England to support local fundraising efforts.
