That's Jimmy Fresh!


Jimmy John's Employee

"Jimmy John’s definition of fresh is coming in at 6am every morning to bake fresh bread, slice fresh veggies that have just been delivered to the store, and slice our all natural meats and cheese. I get asked, “Why do you go to work so early, if lunch isn’t until noon?” I explain that we start the bread baking process as soon as I arrive and continue baking all day so that we serve bread that is less than four hours old. We also slice all produce, meats, and cheese everyday, and people are really surprised by that. That’s Jimmy Fresh!"

Mini Jimmy-cation: Portland, OR


It's time for another trip full of love, laughter, and Mini Jimmys! This time we're headed to the City of Roses 🌹


Look out Portland, we're comin' and we're ready to get weird!


1. Keep Portland Weird Sign

I'm sure you've all heard of it, but here it is in all its' glory. Worth the stop and great for a Portland-y photo!

And hopefully that ladder will be gone when you visit. Really messed with my shot here...


2. Powell's Books

Whether you're a bookworm or not, Powell's city of Books is one of THE coolest bookstores in the country. You could spend hours in this place and barely skim the surface!

I'm very serious about spending hours in here, so bring snacks! Something mini would be perfect.


3. Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall

While your downtown, swing by this historic concert hall locally known as "The Schnitz."

Wanna know what else is The Schnitz? Sandwiches. 🤓


4. Portland Japanese Garden

There's no question, you've gotta visit the Japanese Garden. It's over 9 acres of pure beauty and has an enormous Koi fish pond!

5. Pittock Mansion

Just up the road from the Japanese Garden you'll find the Pittock Mansion, and I highly suggest taking a tour! You'll leave feeling like Kings and Queens...

Even more of a reason to eat like one! 👑

Rockstar Career Path


Jimmy John's Employee

"15 years ago, I was looking for a job to help pay my way through college and landed at Jimmy John’s. I started as an in-shopper, then moved to a delivery driver, and then I was asked to take on the Assistant Manager role. I’m now the General Manager of the store. I’m proud that I finished college with a degree as a Fitness Specialist while also working as a manager. JJ’s ended up becoming much more than a ‘temporary’ job, it is now my career and I absolutely love it!"

-Mary Belcher, General Manager, Bloomington, IN #379

Hoppy Easter Every Bunny!


Easter is just a few days away, which means the other big guy (The Bunny himself) is gonna be hopping through soon! Sometimes he drops off candy and marshmallows and forgets what the people really want. So here's a friendly reminder for our fluffy friend:

It's All About the Small Stuff


Jimmy John's Employee

“I love my job. We have an elderly couple who come to our store about four times a week. They know me by name and I know them by name. They remember me back when I was a delivery driver. I know their order because they order the same sandwiches every time. Not too long ago, we had an ice storm and the parking lot was super icy. I saw them pull up and didn’t want them to get hurt, so we hurried and made their sandwiches. The husband was getting out to help his wife, but by the time he got out of his car, boom, I had the sandwiches out to him. He handed me the money, I ran in to get his change, and brought it to him. It’s something small like that, that makes me happy and proud to work here.”

Mini Jimmy-cation: Tampa, FL


I don't know about you guys, but it's been a little rainy in good 'ol Champaign, IL. If you're like me and lookin' for a quick get away with lots of sunshine, Tampa is the place for you! And here are some suggestions while you're there.


Excuse me while I subliminally sell you sandwiches... 




1. Tampa Riverwalk

The riverwalk runs right along all the good stuff. The Arts District, downtown, and the University of Tampa! Get your run/walk on...
Mini Jimmy Box

...and your eats.


2. Henry B. Plant Park

This park has a beautiful view of the water and is a great place to hang up a hammock!Mini Jimmy BoxIt's BYOH (Bring Your Own Hammock) - but if you don't have one, bring some JJ's, make some friends ✨VOILA✨...hammock.


3. Paddle Boarding

If you're looking for a relaxing activity to do out on the water, paddle boarding is for you! But you can always rent a boat or jet skis...I recommend that too! Mini

But the sun can take the energy right outta you, so gimme a call when you need an energy boost 😋


4. Tampa Theatre

You might need some time out of the sun, so go see an old flick at the Tampa Theatre located downtown!Hand holding Mini Jimmy

Mini Jimmys make a great movie snack!


5. Sunset

Make sure you're out of the movie in time for sunset! You can't miss this. Girl with Jimmy John'sNothing beats that ocean breeze, a good sunset, and even better company ❤️
