Jimmy John's - Nate Brockmeyer

“I’m originally from Baltimore, MD. My parents are in the military so we moved to Tucson when I was in high school, then they moved to Germany and I stayed in Arizona to go to college. It was stressful. I grew up in Maryland for 14 years and then left all my friends behind, then supported myself through college. I’m really proud of that.”

- Nate Brockmeyer, General Manager, Tucson, AZ #412

Find a passion, stick to it, and enjoy it


Jimmy John's - Wallys Villar 2

“I don’t really worry about being an adult all the time even though I have 3 children and I’m technically an ‘adult’. I’ve found a place in my life where I’m happy and I get to have fun, and that shows in my work. I like what I do, which is great; and what I do allows me to do other things I love. I’m a paintballer. I play Division III paintball and I get to travel the country doing it. Find a passion, stick to it, and enjoy it.”

- Wallys Villar, General Manager, Midvale, UT #945

People see hard work!


Jimmy John's - Brian Bugay

“Work hard no matter what you’re doing. How you work early on reflects how you’ll work later in life. People see hard work! A lot of our team starts off working in-shop, then they work their way into management, and the next thing you know they’re working in our head office. There’s always room for growth; and remembering this is how you’ll stay motivated.”

Favorite JJ's Memory



Jimmy John's - Pete Mehnert

“I grew up in Champaign, and the first time I had Jimmy John’s I was about 6 years old. My mom used to give me 50 cents, then have me run in and grab a loaf of day old bread. We’d take it home and she’d make garlic bread or Italian beef sandwiches with it. It’s just crazy that this is the exact store I’d come to at 6 years old!”
