Saints quarterback Drew Brees kept his team on track in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and led the Saints to a 2010 Super Bowl championship. From the Super Bowl to JJ's Super Seal, Brees is jumping in as a Jimmy John's franchisee in New Orleans!
"It all starts with just really loving the product. I was exposed to Jimmy John's during my freshman year at Purdue. I ate there all the time and had it delivered to my dorm room all the time. I just loved the sandwiches. Honestly, I missed Jimmy John's so much from my time in the Midwest, and I thought that it was a great fit for what we were doing in New Orleans. The culinary arts is a big thing down here; there are the great restaurants and the great chefs; and so much of the culture is surrounded by food and dining. It's kind of neat to be part of that somewhat by owning my Jimmy John's franchise." - Drew Brees
