Rockstar biker makes 1,000-mile trip

09/26/2014

This Rockstar from Fort Wayne, Indiana gives new meaning to “going the extra mile.”

JJ Bike Delivery Driver Eddie Ramos doesn’t own a car, but was still driven to participate in two marathons in Vermont. 

Wearing his JJ's swag, Eddie biked nearly 1,000 miles, (that’s about 100 each day), from Indiana to Vermont. The trip, which normally takes 13 hours by car, took him almost 2 weeks to complete.

As for fuel? Eddie dropped by a few JJ’s stores along the way.

Check out these pics from Eddie's trip:

Eddie's gotten tons of support and attention for pushin' the limit. Over $5,000 has been raised via an online campaign to help fund his trip, and the media has been all over his story. Check out this article and video from wane.com.

And one more thing...

Hey Rockstars! Paulina (Jimmy John's Social Media Intern) here, hoping everyone had a rad 4th of July weekend.

One of the best things about working in the Social Media Department is seeing how much people love and appreciate Jimmy John's. Our days are made by amazing fans, like you, who share their awesome love of JJ's. 

Don't worry, the dedication and love doesn't go unnoticed! Jimmy John's strives to make fans happy and one of these ways is some freaky-awesome JJ schwagg! But these fans aren't possible without our Rockstars workin' hard and rockin' out freaky-fast sammies!

On June 4th one the fastest rappers, Twista, tweeted at us and showed his love for our sammies! @JimmyJohns and @TWISTAgmg went back and forth in a mini rap battle. Check it out!

9 things you didn't know about Jimmy John's

06/14/2014

Sweet article from The Daily Meal. Check it!

1-jimmyjohn-flickr_NIU-Business

Founder Jimmy John Liautaud Was at the Bottom of His Class

Liautaud graduated second-to-last in his high school class, and he opened the first location when he was only 19. 

2-fresh-flickr_Mark-H.-Anbinder

Everything is Made Fresh

Bread is baked fresg throughout the day, meat is sliced in the store, produce is cut fresh every morning, and tuna salad is made on-premises as well. If you want day-old bread you can purchase it for just 50 cents, but be warned: it'll be pretty stale.

3-extras-flickr_Hector-Alejandro

All The Add-Ons are Free if You Ask

The basic sandwiches are just meat on bread, so if you want more than that you have to ask for it. Free add-ons range from Dijon mustard to onions to hot peppers to Italian vinaigrette.

Jimmyjohnspromo-flickr_jason-pier-in-dc

They Got Rid of Yellow Mustard

The only mustard that they'll add to your sandwich is Dijon; if you want yellow mustard you'll need to ask for packets. The reason? Efficiency: the fewer options there are, the quicker sandwiches get made. That's also why provolone is the only cheese option.

5-speed-flickr_Nate-Grigg

They're All About Speed

After you place your order (all at once, as opposed to Subway's piecemeal approach), you should receive your sandwich within 30 seconds. If you order sandwiches for delivery, odds are it'll be out the door in less than four-minutes.

7-gargantuan-JimmyJohns

There are Some Secret Menu Items

The famed Gargantuan contains one portion of every meat they offer, except for tuna and bacon. If you want double meat, order a Noah's Ark; if you want tuna and bacon on it as well, that's called a Chuck Norris. You can also order a Slim BLT, but most likely only managers will know what you're talking about. It's an 8 inch roll with six slices of bacon inside.

8-franchises-flickr_Kent-Kanouse

It's Almost 100% Franchises

A significant percentage of most chains are corporate-owned; In-n-Out is 100% corporate-owned, McDonald's is about ten percent. At Jimmy John's it's all about the franchisees, however: 98 percent of all locations are franchise-owned.

9-jobs-flickr_cobalt123

They Add 210 New Jobs Per Week

With new locations opening nearly every day, Jimmy John's creates about 210 new jobs per week. Since 1983 about 45,000 jobs have been created in total.

10-boxers-JimmyJohns

You Can Buy Jimmy John's Boxers

There's a pretty solid online store where you can stock up on Jimmy John's merchandise, from duffel bags to winter coats. If you really want to, you can also buy a pair of "Free Smells" Jimmy John's boxers for $10.
