Ken Schanke & Audrey Poynton

CO-OWNERS Manchester CT

My name is Ken, co-owner of Jersey Mike’s in Manchester, CT with my wife Audrey. Our background in business is extensive, with 25+ years with AT&T Advertising Solutions.  We have 5 children along with 5 beautiful grandchildren. The "kids" are all across the United States from Austin, TX to Boston, MA to Connecticut, with the youngest teaching in Thailand. Some of our passions include serving on the board of an orphanage in Mexico for the past 25 years, and running our Island Sno Hawaiian Shave Ice business. Audrey is the owner of a unique clothing and home goods boutique call The Eclectic Peacock. We also enjoy spending time with family and friends….and saving money for "Fun" Vacations!

We believe that life is not only better with a little "juice" to flavor your day, but a friendly smile, a laugh and a great experience at Jersey Mikes to bring a little sunshine to your day.
