What are the Jimmy John’s Franchise Investment Requirements?

When you invest in a Jimmy John’s franchise,
you say no to the status quo!

Our Franchise Costs Come with Some Great Incentives!

We’ve been in our industry long enough to know what a good franchise investment in it looks like — and ours rocks! That’s because it’s structured to factor in just about everything you’ll need to get your Jimmy John’s up and running. And right now, with special limited-time incentives, it’s time to consider an opportunity!

Ready to Crush It?

We’re serious about growth — yours and ours — and with plenty of space left coast to coast, we’re looking for operators to commit to building out a minimum of three locations. Ideally, you’ll open your first store in year one and stores two and three during your second. Talk to one of our franchise experts for more details.

ROI that Rocks: Our franchisees love what they do, and for many of them, it shows in their bottom lines, with average gross sales of over $1.1M a year!**
