About Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches
Jimmy John's makes tasty sandwiches using real, fresh ingredients. Homemade bread is baked fresh all day, and all-natural meats and freshly delivered veggies are hand sliced in-store every day.
Jimmy John Liautaud opened the doors to the first Jimmy John's in Charleston, Illinois on January 13, 1983. After graduating second to last in his high school class, Jimmy knew college was not for him. With a $25,000 loan from his father to open up a business, he chose to open a sandwich shop. Jimmy's beginnings in the shop shaped the company's culture and future success. He had to overcome large odds and frequent obstacles in the beginning. His managers quit, forcing him to work 20-hour days, every day for 6 months. During this time he developed processes in the shop that employees still use today. Jimmy also took the toughest tasks for himself, giving the easier items to his manager. He learned that by serving his manager and setting him up for success, he could better serve his customers. In 1994, Jimmy began franchising.
