We make sandwiches — only sandwiches. Really fast. It’s simple: seven meats, two breads, and one cheese making 25 different sandwiches. We also introduce seasonal add-ons and limited-time offers, adding new and exciting ingredients to the menu, including summer wraps!
Delivery is our specialty. It gives us the edge and sets us apart. We keep our delivery areas small so our customers get their food fast and fresh.
Here’s some Jimmy John’s franchise information to consider: with restaurant footprints as small as 800 square feet, modular buildout capabilities, and walk-up window, drive-thru, and patio options, the possibilities are nearly endless. You can also count on important vendor relationships that’ll get you the best ingredients, our proprietary POS system that makes it easier to run your restaurant, and our expert local and national marketing helps get the word out, among many other perks!
Jimmy John’s history and franchise information go back to 1983 when Jimmy John’s dad gave him two options after high school graduation: join the service or start a business. As much as Jimmy appreciated the contributions made by our nation’s service members, he knew his skills would be better put to use running his own business. And so, with a $25,000 loan from his father (who would briefly be a business partner), Jimmy opened his first sandwich shop, serving only the freshest meats and baking the bread himself!
Fast forward two years later, and Jimmy bought his dad out. Ten years later, he was overseeing ten sandwich shop locations, and in 1994, starting franchising his delicious idea to other bold sandwich lovers.
Today, Jimmy John’s is one of the fastest-growing franchise concepts out there. Our growth is due in part to staying true to our roots — keeping things fast and fresh and maintaining a steadfast commitment to excellence.
For a limited time, we are offering significant incentives for new store development commitments for 2023 - 2025.
