It established Mohegan Holding Company, LLC, for business diversification in non-gaming areas, and now includes interests in franchise restaurants, sustainable energy resources and manufacturing, and office digital solutions.

This year, the company’s 5th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $3 million for 150 local charities throughout the country.
At Jersey Mike’s, subs made Mike’s Way® with the freshest vegetables – onions, lettuce and tomatoes – topped off with “the juice” – red wine vinegar and olive oil. Jersey Mike’s premium meats and cheeses are sliced on the spot, piled high on in-store baked bread and served up with a helping of neighborly banter from a dedicated and high-energy team.
