Why Jimmy John's?

Because We're

the Best Sandwich Franchise

Out There!

A Franchise Opportunity to Own a Brand Customers Love

Jimmy John’s knew what the people wanted long before they even realized it: fresh, high-quality sandwiches — fast. Whether dine-in, drive-thru, or pick-up, customers can get their fix their way. And as the best sandwich franchise out there, we’ve also got a franchise opportunity that can’t be beat! Our track record is best in class. Our system works. We’ve been doing this for over 40 years. We’re one of the fastest-growing restaurant chains in America, and even better: people love our food! We’ve got more than 800 franchisees running more than 2,600 locations across the US — what’s stopping you from joining us?

WE DEFINE FRESH SANDWICHES

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 since 1983: this is just one of the reasons we are one of the best sandwich shop franchises out there!

*All-Natural: No artificial ingredients and minimally processed (except for caramel color on roast beef).

We're Fast

We spend six 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.

We keep it simple

Limited, focused inventory — what could be easier? Everything about Jimmy John’s is about keeping it simple. No BS, no gimmicks. To be the best sub franchise, we have created 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.

We Innovate

We already had the right stuff to keep our franchisees at the top of their game through 2020, and we’ve made the right moves to stay ahead of the industry’s new normal. We’ve added revenue opportunities by introducing combo meals, offering LTOs, and utilizing third-party delivery tech.

We are high performers

We all 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. If you’re looking for a franchise opportunity that gets you working with the best — look no more!
