HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WENY) -- Jersey Mike's is set to open up a new location next Wednesday, December 6th at 10:00 a.m., located right next to Starbucks on County Route 64 in Horseheads. In order to help hit the ground running, they are holding a fundraiser for the Horseheads Central School District as they open the new store.

According to officials associated with the franchise that owns the new location, special fundraising coupons will be distributed through a grassroots effort before the store opens on the 6th. Customers who have these coupons can redeem them and make a donation of at least $3 to the Horseheads Central School District to receive a regular sub.

In preparation for the opening, new crew members are undergoing training to ensure that all onboard are ready for opening, in addition to touching up the interior and aesthetics.

“Jersey Mike’s is built on community and great relationships,” said General Manager Matthew McIntyre. “Having the ability to work with Horseheads Central School District for our Grand Opening Sponsorship has been truly rewarding. Being a new resident in the area myself, I cannot wait to continue to grow with our community and give back to the local schools, teams, students, and families.”

The new location resides close to a Starbucks location inside Southern Tier Crossing off County Road 64, and with how busy the plaza can be during the Christmas shopping season, the location is looking to get off to a fast start. This promotion will run from opening to Sunday, December 10th.
