Jimmy John's is an American sandwich franchise chain with an emphasize on speedy delivery services. The company is owned by private equity firm Roark Capital Group and is popularly known for its out-of-the-box marketing campaigns and slogan "freakishly fast." Within a crowded market, Jimmy John's competes by offering customers fresh, made-to-order sandwiches in just 30 seconds -- as fast as or faster than quick-service restaurants.
No soups, no hot sandwiches, no salads. Just sandwiches. Our track record is best in class. Our system works for Jimmy John's franchise owners, their teams and customers. We've been doing this for over 36 years. We're one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in America. Most importantly, people love our food! Over 2,800 units strong and lots of room to grow.
We Define Fresh
Our all-natural meats* and vegetables are hand sliced in-house every day. Our fresh baked bread is baked all day, every day. Fresh food from scratch. Has been since 1983.
We spend 6 hours slicing and baking every day to make 30-second sandwiches for our customers. With the prep behind us, our system is designed for fast, flawless execution.
Limited, focused inventory – what could be easier? Everything about Jimmy John's is about keeping it simple. No BS, no gimmicks. We have a very disciplined product, menu, and system. No one else is as efficient, effective, or consistent as we are in delivering a fresh-made meal for under $20.
At Jimmy John's, we want to be the best. We all do whatever it takes to get the job done. That's why we are so selective in this process. Not everyone is wired the same way. We're looking for Jimmy John's franchise owners who want to be the best!
Jimmy John's franchise owners are genuine individuals who like our food and who are willing to do whatever it takes to make great sandwiches for our customers. This is a lifestyle, and it's a tough one. It's not for everyone, but being the best is reserved for only those who want to go above and beyond and become a part of this very exclusive club.
