My Mom


Jimmy John's - Brandon Taylor

“My mom is for sure one of my role models. She came to America from Nicaragua when she was 15. She came here knowing no English at all. I want to do as much as I can to give back to her. She’s always giving, she’s always been there for her mom and her family, and if it weren’t for her none of us would be here. Seeing her give to so many people even when we didn’t have much to give means a lot to me. She’s done so much for everyone else, I want to do the same thing for her.”

- Brandon Taylor, Delivery Driver, Champaign, IL #9039



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.”

- Brian Bugay, Business Coach, Denver, CO

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!”

- Pete Mehnert, Guerilla Marketer, Champaign, IL

Aspiring to Help Others


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.”

- Hannah Li, Catering Manager, Champaign, IL #9015

St. Louis


Jimmy John's - Austin Werths

“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!”

- Austin Werths, Community Marketing Manager, St. Louis, MO

Tampa Love


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.”

- Amanda Wallace, Community Marketing Manager, Tampa, FL
