We love our customers!


Jimmy John's Employee

"We have a regular who comes in almost every day and we always talk. My wife and I have become really good friends with him and his wife. We’ve even gone to Thanksgiving at their house and have gone to a Diamondbacks game. We talk in and out of work. I love building relationships and that’s something that goes back to when I first moved here from Mexico. I couldn’t speak English for like 8 years. So, once I was able to speak the language I was like, ‘Talk to me, I want to be your friend!' One of the coolest things about working at Jimmy John’s is that I get to build relationships with our customers and sometimes even make good friends.”

Jimmy Fresh™ Sauces ’n Sides


Jimmy Fresh™ doesn’t stop with hand sliced, all-natural meats, locally purchased produce or fresh baked bread.

Each and every ingredient and product we use is best in class, highest quality and as good as it gets.

The only mayo we use in our stores is Hellmann’s Real Mayo®. It’s the best mayo you can buy and when the taste of red ripe tomatoes, crispy lettuce and all-natural meats combine with Hellmann’s® on my fresh baked bread, nothing can beat it.

Jimmy John's Condiments


We make all of our Italian Vinaigrette in-house by hand every day and use StarKist® tuna in our homemade tuna salad because it's the best.

We use Grey Poupon® Dijon mustard. Sure, there’s a cheaper and lower quality Dijon out there, but it's not worth compromising quality and taste.

Our kettle cooked potato chips are made with real potatoes. Regular Jimmy Chips and Thinny Chips are just potatoes, peanut oil and salt. That’s it.

Thinny and Regular Jimmy Chips

Our Salt and Vinegar, Jalapeño and BBQ chips are as clean as we can make them and still keep them tasting yummy!


Our Triple Chocolate Chunk and Oatmeal Raisin cookies use real butter, real eggs, real vanilla and real Ghirardelli® chocolate chips. It costs a little more, but it's worth it to make the highest quality, tastiest cookies.

This is the way it's always been, I just haven't told you until now!

Find Your Passion


Jimmy John's Employee

"I got lost for a little bit and wound up in a bit of a rut, but life goes on. A month ago I walked up the street and I see JJ’s with a sign that says, ‘Now Hiring!’ And my passion, my true passion is the same as my father’s, to simply feed people, and it doesn’t matter what position I’m in. Like here at Jimmy John's, I have my role. I’m the man on the slicer, who is going to slice this beautiful meat for our customers, every single morning. This is my passion."

Fresh Sliced Produce


Since 1983, we’ve been slicing fresh produce by hand every single day, in every single store. It takes a little more time and a little more integrity, but it's worth it. 

We buy our veggies locally and they are delivered fresh to their community’s Jimmy John’s.

While you’re sleeping, JJ Rockstars are in their shops, checking each and every vegetable for quality, prepping, and then hand slicing them to make you a homemade sub from scratch.

Nothing comes to us pre-sliced and we use only the highest quality ingredients.

We unbox the lettuce heads, tomatoes and cucumbers, wash them, slice them and serve to you on your favorite sandwich.

We unbox the celery stalks, remove the ugly ends, wash them, slice them and mix them into our homemade tuna salad.

We peel the onion skins and slice them for your sub or dice them for tuna salad.

Everyday, we spend 6 hours slice and baking to make you a 30 second sub.

There’s nothing like the taste of fresh, red, ripe Roma tomatoes, crisp shredded lettuce or fresh sliced cucumbers. Combine it with my fresh baked bread, all-natural meats and tasty, real Hellmann's mayo, and you'll see where the magic happens.

All the little things we do make us better than anyone else. That’s why we’re Jimmy Fresh™.
