Tom checks out Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q.
Jim ‘N Nick’s Community Bar-B-Q is joining thousands of restaurants nationwide to support No Kid Hungry by raising funds in their restaurants this year. In honor of their 30th Birthday on March 23rd, Jim ‘N Nick’s is celebrating company-wide with a “Day of Giving.”
They will feature their signature “Pig on a Bun” special at the original 1985 price of $2.99, but are graciously asking guests to pay $30—or an amount of their choosing—to celebrate 30 years in business. Every dollar donated beyond the cost of the $2.99-special will benefit No Kid Hungry to fight childhood hunger.
The “Pig on a Bun” features a Hickory Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich and one trimming. The promotion is available via Dine In and Carry Out only, and runs during normal business hours on March 23, 2015, 11am – 9pm at all Jim ‘N Nick’s locations.
Jim ‘N Nick’s will also be selling a limited-time 30th Birthday retail shirt in their restaurants.
For each shirt sold, $10 will go directly to No Kid Hungry. For more information on Jim ‘N Nick’s and their March 23rd celebration visit www.jimnnicks.com.
“We are excited to be celebrating 30 years of serving the community,” says Jim ‘N Nick’s Founder Nick Pihakis. “We wanted to do something good that says ‘thank you’ to our guests, and offers them a chance to help a great cause. We ask that you simply give what you can on March 23rd. No Kid Hungry is a phenomenal organization, and we are proud to partner with them.”
Last year, 11,000 restaurants raised $8.9 million for No Kid Hungry. No Kid Hungry funds are used to raise awareness about child hunger in the U.S., create public-private partnerships that align kids with the resources they need, support nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals, and educate kids and their families on how to cook healthy meals with limited resources.
“A commitment to community and partnership is exactly what it will take to help end childhood hunger in America, and we are thrilled to have Jim ‘N Nick’s support—and the support of their loyal diners—at No Kid Hungry,” said Chuck Scofield, No Kid Hungry Chief Development Officer.
Jim ‘N Nick’s started cooking pork “low and slow” when Nick Pihakis, along with his dad Jim, reclaimed an old pizza parlor on Clairmont Avenue in Birmingham, AL where they opened the first Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q in March 1985. Today, with 33 restaurants in 7 states, Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q has become a Southern institution. With no freezers in any of their buildings, they pride themselves on using all the right ingredients that are made fresh daily. They joined the
Denver community in Aurora in 2006. Overwhelmed with love for Jim ‘N Nick’s, locations have opened in Northfield, Hampden and coming soon to Northglenn.
