JRI Hospitality is thrilled to announce our newest partnership with Junior Achievement of Arizona! Three of our restaurants, Chompies, Mokas Cafe and Freddy’s opened up shop in BizTown in December 2022. Through these strategic partnerships, we are expecting to see an increase in economic growth as students learn all the tools necessary to succeed in the real world.
JRI’s support of Junior Achievement will allow thousands of Arizona students to learn more about the restaurant business and real world experience of how it all works. Empowering the lives of students to embrace the reality of venturing into the culinary industry through an inside look at what it takes to be successful. We’re excited to invest in future generations through what Junior Achievement of Arizona provides.
How This Partnership Impacts the Local Community
At the Junior Achievement Open House in November, JRI’s leadership was able to meet and interact with students, parents, and other supporters of Junior Achievement of Arizona. These relationships are essential in fostering learning and understanding, as they allow students to have a better and more direct understanding of the business world.
The restaurant group’s sponsorship of Junior Achievement of Arizona will have a far-reaching impact. It will allow thousands of students to have a better understanding of the business world, which can help them to make better decisions in their own lives and their own businesses in the future.
With the sponsorship, students can learn more about the ins and outs of running a business, from marketing to finance and more.
JRI is proud to be part of Junior Achievement of Arizona’s mission, and we’re excited to continue developing our relationships with students, parents, and other supporters. With this sponsorship, we’re helping to ensure that students have the resources and knowledge they need to make a positive impact on the world.
