My Happiest Moment


Jimmy John's - Allen Duong"When I watched my wife walk down the aisle I had the biggest grin, I was so happy. Our wedding was supposed to start at 2 o’clock and she was half an hour late because she had to get her makeup perfect. I finally saw her car pull up, so we all got into position. She walked in with her Dad and our service dog Shadow…I literally could not stop smiling. I don’t know if anything will ever top that moment."

-Allen Duong, General Manager, Irving, TX #1260

Lessons and Blessings


Jimmy John's - Jaylan Bailey

"I lost my grandfather when I was a sophomore in high school. He was a big part of my life. When I lost him, I kind of shut down for a little bit. It was one of the hardest things I had gone through, but it made me a stronger person. Every time I get down or want to turn away from the good things I’m doing, I just think, this is something he’d want me to do, you know? One thing I always say is ‘lessons and blessings’. There’s no wins and losses in life, just lessons and blessings, and everything happens for a reason. It’s up to you what you take out of every situation you’re put through in life.”

Dance Like Nobody's Watching

Role Models


JImmy John's Employee

 "I was 8 years old when my Dad was shot 5 times, he is paralyzed on the right side of his body. My Mom is such a strong, determined woman. She powers through everything and does it with a smile on her face. So, we grew up watching her help my Dad because he basically had to re-learn everything. That was about 17 years ago and now he walks, talks, and drives…he’s going to Florida by himself this month. They’re my biggest role models. They’ve made me an independent person who knows I’ll be okay no matter where I go. I’m moving to Washington this month and graduating in April!”

Learn from your struggles


Alyssa Cornett"There are things I could have done differently with the Navy or with college, but it’s not really anything that I can change now. So you just have to learn from your struggles, move past them, and then do better next time. I’ve learned that you’ll want to listen to what everyone else has to say about everything, but it all comes down to you, your thoughts, and what you care about. Just remember to put yourself first sometimes."

My Biggest Accomplishment


Tyler Mihu - Jimmy John's

"I’m comfortable here, and I like working at a fast pace. I’ve worked a lot of different jobs and left them after a few months each. I guess I wasn’t reliable at the time, or I just didn’t find something I really enjoyed. This is probably my biggest accomplishment; I’ve been here for almost 4 years, and I haven’t given it up! I don’t plan to either!"
