JJ's is a way of life!


Photo Aug 19

“I love being a part of the Jimmy John’s family! I’ve always been a hard worker, but JJ’s is the first place where I consistently receive praise for working hard. I feel appreciated which has built my confidence. I'm stoked that it motivates me to strive to do my very best all day every day. When I went to Training at the home office, it hit me, this is even bigger than what I saw in my store. The culture got me super excited, it sealed the deal for me. JJ’s isn’t just a job, it’s a way of life, and I love it!  This company is how America was built. We all work really hard and we all share the rewards. Awesome!"

Sandwiches 101


School is back in full swing and the kiddos in Mr. Heiman's 2nd grade squad in Lawrence, KS found a way to bring their sub love with them! Students were given the task of creating a new Jimmy John's sub made of their favorite ingredients.

Own your own destiny



“We got into Jimmy John’s because my fiancé Ryan wanted to be his own boss. We wanted to be in charge of our own destiny, where the harder we worked the more we benefited, and of course we wanted something to call our own. Our families got together and picked Jimmy John’s. The separator of JJ’s system to the competitors is everything we do is with full integrity. Every single thing, every single time. From slicing produce every morning, to baking perfect bread, to the quality of the natural meats, to how we take care of our customers, everything is done with full integrity. I think that’s hard to come by with most companies. That’s what Jimmy stands for, his montra is, “I DON’T WANT TO BE THE BIGGEST I WANT TO BE THE BEST.” Ryan and I, with our families, have an opportunity to live the American dream. I’m doing it with the love of my life and I couldn’t be more grateful.”

-Angie Eichmeier, Franchisee/Area Marketing Director, San Bernardino, CA #3084

Be positive and SMILE!



"Jimmy John’s gave me a job when I moved to LA from Ohio and it’s a job I’m proud of. Every day I choose a positive attitude. I choose to rock. I love my customers and I think they love me back. I enjoy speaking with them as I hand off their sandwiches. I sample to people and they are shocked. It puts a smile on their face. When our customers walk through the door, I make their day a little bit better because I smile and give them great service. It’s a good feeling and I can definitely thank Jimmy John’s for that. Teaching me to fish and not giving me a fish.”

Hard out there for a college kid


The school year is just around the corner and whether this is your first semester away from home or you’re gearing up for a fifth year fall, there's loads of things your parents won’t tell ya. That's where the Rockstars of Jimmy John's come in-  below we've compiled a list of tips, that may or may not be from experience, to help ya survive. Good luck out there.


1. 'Club going up on a Tuesday' Just a song, don’t do it."



2. It’s not worth signing up for a credit card account for a free t-shirt, but posting up at a bar from open to close for a t-shirt is a different story.



3. Save the easier electives for senior year, you’ll thank me in 4 or 6 years.



4. You need to keep the weather in mind when getting dressed to go out, you don’t know yet how long your walk home in the morning is going to be.



 5. The freshman 15 is a real thing, believe in it.



 6. Find your local JJ's and ask if they are hiring. Bake that dough, make that dough



 7. Never update your Facebook status drunk, may get a lot of likes but could have some regrets in the morning



8.  If you go to class, you won’t have to study as much, which will give you more time to hit the bars.



 9. Ask adults for anything. They love helping out non-income, ‘hard studying’, college students bettering their education for a brighter future



 10. You might think you’ve found your significant other three days into your freshman year, but if they aren’t a JJ’s sandwich, they’re not right for you 



Only the strong survive



"We have strong people at Jimmy John’s. If you aren’t mentally strong and competitive, the leadership will help you become that way. If future leaders are willing to do the work, they guaranteed can make it. Those that lead here have both hard work ethic and total integrity. That’s the culture. Everyone that I’ve worked with has a can do attitude. Day one, I immediately connected and I knew in my heart that my bosses had those those qualities.”

– Charles Glass, Training Manager, Champaign, IL
