June 20, 2018 – Miami Grill announces partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs, an organization that, for over a century, has helped put young people on the path to great futures by providing an affordable, safe place where they can learn and grow to achieve their full potential through a variety of programs.
Although Miami Grill is a longtime contributor to many local organizations in their home market, they felt this charity was a way to support the communities they serve nationwide. As a first initiative, the Miami-based restaurant chain is partnering with The Boys & Girls Clubs of South Florida to help provide free swimming lessons to local club members this summer. Currently, drowning is the leading cause of injury/death among children ages 1-4 in Florida, with the state’s drowning death rate being the highest in the nation.
It costs $20 per child to provide swimming lessons by a certified instructor. The “Help Save the Life of a Child” campaign begins in June with donations being collected at Miami Grill and Miami Subs Grill locations throughout South Florida. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the Boys & Girls Clubs to provide swimming lessons to children throughout the tri-county area. “We are proud to be a part of such an important initiative and very honored to be partnering with B&GC, an organization that is vital to the communities they serve. We look forward to a long and rewarding association,” stated Steven Klass, executive vice president of marketing, who has been spearheading this project for Miami Grill.
Miami Grill continues to expand both domestically and internationally with a concentrated development targeted to Central and North Florida, where the chain recently entered the Jacksonville and Gainesville markets. Construction is underway at One Daytona, Orlando and Green Acres. International development continues at a robust pace with a new restaurant in Pakistan to be followed by multiple locations. Expansion is also underway in South Carolina, Texas, Malaysia, Panama and Ecuador.
