From Champaign, IL to Rome, straight from the man Jimmy himself, a number 12, including all the fixings (don't worry, she added her own veggies!) Even 4,916.41 miles can't come between a girl and her sandwich.





Dear sprout lovers: Sprouts are back! We've heard your cry and felt your pain since we removed sprouts from our menu. They are back in 70% of the stores, the rest of em will see sprouts May 8th. Optional on sandwiches, eat at your own risk! :)

Rockstar Will Thomas has been working at JJs for over 13 years! Starting as a delivery driver back in college, Will is now the Director of IT! 


Job Title/ Description? Director of IT, Manage a team of six to support over 325 computers and users, 19 total servers, and manage development of both internal systems to make the JJ’ system more effective and the POS and Enterprise reporting systems.

When and where was your first job? My first job was when I was 13 in Paris, Illinois delivering newspapers. My first “real” job was when I turned 16 working for a Burger King in Paris, Illinois.

How did you get started at JJ’s? I moved to Champaign to attend college. The night I moved into my apartment I turned in an application to be a delivery driver in response to a newspaper ad and was hired on the spot with the stipulation that I had to begin work that night. I went home changed my jeans, put on some tennis shoes, and the rest is history.

What other positions have you had at JJ’s? Delivery Driver, Inshopper, Assistant Manager, General Manager, IT Special Projects Manager.

What do you love most about your job? The fact that I am surrounded by hard working, world class people every day. We all drive each other to be successful, make this company great, and to eliminate the BS from our lives and work.

What do you know now that you wish you knew then? The importance of making everything you do great. The difference in the way you feel and the success that comes with producing great things far outweighs the work that must be completed to go from good to great.

What is your favorite JJ’s sandwich? Slim 1 TBO add bacon

If you could describe yourself in a #hashtag, what would it be? #Tenacious

Best advice to future JJ’s rockstars? You must always strive to exceed expectations and achieve greatness in both your personal and work lives. The difference between ordinary and extraordinary people is the willingness to go the extra step in every situation.


Love at First Bite!
