Here at Jiffy Trip, not only do we believe in serving the most delicious comfort food Enid has to offer, but we also believe in giving back. That’s why we’ve created a wide range of important initiatives to help members of our local Enid community. This week’s Jiffy Trip blog discusses some of these initiatives and explains why they’re important to us.
Jiffy Trip is a family-owned American restaurant that offers delicious comfort food from chicken fried steak to pizza. We aim to offer convenient, delicious options from families and truckers to our very own community members. We have 26 convenience store locations across the Northern half of Oklahoma, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be celebrating our 50th anniversary next year! That’s five decades of convenient, delicious comfort food. Read our blog post to learn more about all the ways Jiffy Trip is giving back to the local community and reach out to our American restaurant today!
What We Support
Jiffy Trip believes in giving back to our community, so we’ve created a few initiatives to help make where we live and work a better place. Through our JT Cares program, each of our team members can support the needs of their neighbors by providing materials and funds to important local organizations.
Oklahoma Children’s Hospital
One of our most impactful initiatives is our partnership with Oklahoma Children’s Hospital. For the last five years, we’ve partnered with our local children’s hospital and run campaigns for them which have allowed our customers, employees, vendors, and other community members to get involved with this impactful initiative. To date, we’ve raised over $400,000 for children in Oklahoma Children’s Hospital!
United Way – Northwest Oklahoma
This past year, we chaired the United Way campaign in Northwest Oklahoma, and we’re proud to announce that it was the most successful campaign to date! 2020 was one of the most difficult years for many non-profits, so we are thrilled that we were able to help ease the burden.
The first responders in our community always offer invaluable support and services, but in 2020 more than ever, they went above and beyond, risking their personal health and safety to serve the Northwest Oklahoma community. Additionally, the wildfires in our area throughout recent years have posed significant threats, so to support our first responders, we’ve donated truckloads of important supplies to help say thank you.
Whether our local schools need school supplies, donations, scholarships, or anything in between, our team at Jiffy Trip has stepped in to help!
Local Sports Teams
We take pride in our local sports teams, so we’ve helped them out by sponsoring them, buying ads for them, or doing anything we can to help get involved with our local community.
