This Kid Thinks Food is Too Cute to Eat…





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?



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.



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!"

Perfect Dates with your Significant Other...and JJ's


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.”
