All about the bread

03/09/2016

"I've always told people it's Jimmy's bread. Because, I mean, the moment I had Jimmy John's...I got a #9 and I was like, 'wow, this is good stuff.' The bread sold me, it is so addicting. And the meats are quality, everything about it is quality, but it starts with the bread. There's just something about it, tastes so good!"

I asked you to snap me your best face swaps and things got weird

03/03/2016

Every once in a while, the future slaps us right in the face. Sometimes so hard, it slaps our face right off and transforms us all into creatures from a horror movie. 

So without further ado, here are the top 10 slightly uncomfortable but absolutely beautiful Face Swap snapchats from you guys.

All I have to say is- what a time to be alive.

This Kid Thinks Food is Too Cute to Eat…

02/26/2016

  

Riiight.

 

Screen Shot 2016-02-25 at 8.56.56 AMSaid no one ever.

Now, now, adorable young boy. We understand that you’ve only been on this planet for a miniscule amount of time, but your opinions on food will rapidly change. In approximately 5 years (or less) you will be eating everything in sight. “Oh my gosh! Those cookies are so cute!” Bye cookie. “That sandwich looks perfect!” Bye sandwich.

 

2Great question, Mom.

What should we do with it?! You’re asking what we should do with the FOOD?

 

3WRONG.

The correct answer is eat the food, you eat the food, kid.

 

4Help you with the first bite? That’s actually the nicest thing anyone will ever offer you.

 

5WRONG, AGAIN.

Um, yes you may help me with my first bite. Jesus kid, don’t you realize this is the ONLY time in your life someone will offer to help you eat?

Someone get this young man a Jimmy John’s sandwich, one bite and he’ll never think anything is “too cute to eat” again

Making ordinary people extraordinary

"Managing people and building a solid relationship to empower employees to work fast and accurate is very difficult. But I've become a master at it, here's how: I show them exactly what to do myself. Then I let them try it. When they first try what I showed them it's very awkward, so the only thing I comment on is what they are doing really well, I don't focus on what needs improvements. Then I meet with them each week and review what they learned, how they are doing and then I reset new goals for the up and coming week. I'm always with them jamming it out so as a result my team is completely self motivated. So much that I don't even need to be here all the time as they execute like rockstars now whether I'm there or not. I love leading but mostly I love watching my team grow confidence and ability. I take ordinary people and teach them to do extraordinary things. It’s so cool when you can actually do it!"

Lead by Example

"Everybody that's higher up from me has never made me feel like I'm lesser, and I think that's really, really important. That's something that no other job has provided me the feeling of. Everyone is really, really nice and down to earth and it never feels like they're above me, and I absolutely adore that. I can totally be myself here, and I can thrive on that. Jimmy just leads by example and people do what he does. Jimmy's example makes me work harder, thanks Jimmy!"

Nothing says love like ice skating with bae (bread above everything).

Or sky gazing and sandwich tasting...

Finally, watch the sunset with your hot date and your cold sandwich.

No one likes a 3rd wheel on Valentine's Day. Unless the 3rd wheel is JJ's.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Jimmy John's is my family

"I have a lot of feelings for people that have gone through social service and domestic violence, any kind of impact that was negative on their life. I personally would like to go to a women’s rescue shelter and places like that and read poetry, and do different workshops. A lot of how I came up through my childhood struggles was with poetry. I think it’s interesting because there’s a sense of family and community here that I have not really experienced throughout a lot of my life. Jimmy John’s is my family. That’s why I enjoy it.”

Believe

"I taught myself how to play poker and now I play all the time. Poker teaches you to have patience and to trust and believe in yourself. Even if I don't have a good hand, I can win a huge pot by making my opponent fold their hand. What does that take? It takes patience, it takes trusting myself. Trusting myself is something I also do with my job at Jimmy John's. I started as a driver 9 months ago. After a month I got promoted. Patience and trusting myself has worked for me."

"I think this year our store went down as the #11 rated store in the nation. I run that store, I mean, I think that's pretty cool. Twenty-three years old...yeah...I'd take that as an accomplishment. Drew Brees is my owner. He throws a pretty good football, I run a damn good sub shop. I'd say Drew and I make for great partners. Thanks JJ, Thanks Drew!"

-Doug Harrington, General Manger, Metairie, LA #1653
