We support communities that support us.
Support. It’s a simple but powerful idea. When you order from any Milio’s Sandwiches in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa, you’ll find a new, special sandwich on the menu – The Gourmet Ham & Cheese. For every one of those sold, Milio’s and its franchise partners will donate $1.50 to a local community organization that’s making a great impact on our families and neighborhoods.
We call it “Local Matters” …because we believe in supporting the communities that support us. And because there are local matters that could use some extra love.
The local causes will change every so often, but “Local Matters” is not a limited-time promotion. It is endless, permanent and an integral piece of the Milio’s DNA. And there is no ceiling on what we’ll donate. Just 9 community sandwiches, sold at each Milio’s location every day, would return over $100,000 to local organizations in a year’s time. But frankly, we’re aiming bigger than that.
There are two really important reasons why “Local Matters” is so dear to us. First – and let’s be real here – you have a lot of big, national companies where you can get a sandwich, and we genuinely appreciate it when you choose to spend your hard-earned dollars with a local company like Milio’s.
Second, the pandemic has been, if we’re being candid, not very good for business. But local organizations and our customers made it a point to support us, to help us through, to allow us to do what we love. Waunakee, Wisconsin franchisee Scott Mooney, who was the inspiration behind the “Local Matters” campaign, sums it up beautifully: “When everything came to a grinding stop last Spring, customers, companies and local organizations really stepped up to help us out. One of those was the Waunakee Public Library, which we had recently made a donation to. They came to us and said, ‘Here, take this money back. We know you guys are going through a lot.’” There are a lot of organizations in our communities just like this
On behalf of 200+ Milio’s employees who rely on your loyalty, thank you in advance for helping us stay focused on local matters.
