Erbert & Gerbert Makes Charities a Summer Focus

Erbert & Gerbert’s Sandwich Shop, the national sandwich chain known for its gourmet subs, is making a difference in local communities across the country by donating to JDRF, the Special Olympics, food banks, and other various charities from July 8 through August 11.

 

This summer, locals can help Erbert & Gerbert’s make a difference in their communities by donating a dollar to the chain’s charities. For every dollar donated, customers receive a dollar in comet cash to use at their next visit to Erbert & Gerbert’s. One hundred percent of their donation goes to the chain’s designated charities.

 

Our franchisees have always been very supportive of their local communities and are excited to take part in our ‘Making a Difference’ campaign,” says Chuck Schwalbe, director of marketing. “We are thrilled to be able to give back and help out great organizations like the Special Olympics and JDRF.”

 

Founded in 1988 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and themed originally from a child’s storybook, Erbert & Gerbert’s has grown to over 63 locations in eight states, with locations ranging from urban centers to rural areas. Growth for 2013 to 2014 is targeted in Iowa, Illinois, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Missouri, and Nebraska, with additional franchises slated to open in Michigan and Texas.
