Aspiring to Help Others

08/29/2018

Jimmy John's - Hannah Li

“I’m majoring in Speech & Hearing Science with a concentration in Speech Language Pathology. The goal is to become a Speech Therapist! I knew I wanted a job where I could help people and come to work every day feeling fulfilled. I worked with kids this Summer for my internship, and at their graduation one of the older kids gave a speech. He had Cochlear implants and they showed a video of his progress; from not being able to speak to where he is now. It was just amazing. He was saying thank you to everyone who helped him and for all that he’d learned. It was so cool to see that and think, yes, I can do this and one day help kids learn how to speak. It’s incredible.”

“I grew up in the St. Louis area and I’m excited to put my local expertise to work.  I love the diversity St. Louis has to offer and I’m eager to get more involved with local, community events. I’m currently working with STLFC, Six Flags and local golf tournaments and I have a lot of ideas in the works.  I can’t wait to see the relationship between Jimmy John’s and the people of St. Louis grow. Go Blues!”

Jimmy John's - Amanda Wallace

“I’m here to support our local franchisees and show the Tampa community some love! I believe in our product and want the people of Tampa to experience our homemade baked bread and hand sliced all-natural meats and veggies. I’m excited for our Jimmy John’s stores to make fresh, fast, tasty sandwiches for the Tampa community and look forward to the relationships we’ll build together.”

Community Involvement in Cincinnati

08/08/2018

Jimmy John's - Brian Midden

“My goal is to be present, get involved, work events, and find ways to help the Cincinnati community. We currently have 5 sponsorships with local high schools and each brings something different to the table. Like hooking up the student of the month with JJ Gift Cards or having a Freaky Fast First Down at the football games; just fun ways to benefit the schools and be involved. I think they really appreciate it and I love doing it, so it’s been a blast!”

Atlanta

Jimmy Johns - Meagan Kapustka

“I moved to Atlanta a few months ago to be the Community Marketing Manager and I am loving it! I think there are so many opportunities to get involved here. The city is gorgeous and the people here are amazing, they really are. Everyone is so willing to talk to you and set up meetings; they want to take that extra time to really get to know you as a person. They’re not only buying into JJ’s, they’re in it for the personal relationships too. Which is really cool to see and be a part of.”
