Sponsor Spotlight: Jersey Mike’s Subs
Jersey Mike’s Subs joined the Walk to End Lupus Now™ in 2013 and handed out their famous sub sandwiches to all participants at four metro Chicago events! Their generosity added to the festivities for the 4,000 lupus supporters!
Mike’s Subs was founded in 1956 on the Jersey shore. In 1972 the store was purchased by 17 year old Peter Cancro who had worked in the store since he was 14. In 1987, Cancro began franchising Jersey Mike’s Subs and currently oversees over 600 stores either open or in development.
“Giving…making a difference in someone’s life has always been a guiding principle at Jersey Mike’s, a philosophy that comes straight from our Founder Peter Cancro.” said John Griparis, Jersey Mike’s Subs Vice President of the co-op group representing the 32 Chicagoland locations. “Getting involved with the Lupus Foundation of America, Illinois Chapter was an easy decision for us to make, especially since our local Jersey Mike’s family is affected personally by the disease. We are committed to working with The Illinois Chapter and its Walk to End Lupus Now™ events to help conquer this debilitating and destructive autoimmune disease.”
The Lupus Foundation of America, Illinois Chapter thanks Jersey Mike’s Subs for their continued support!
