Food delivery is a way of life which has expanded beyond take out containers of fried rice and greasy orders of pizza. You can now get almost anything delivered — milk teas loaded with spheres of tapioca, decadent cartons of soft ice cream, and sandwiches piled high with cold cuts and squares of cheese.
But what if you reside just outside of the delivery variety of your chosen restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is attempting to alter that. In the end, Jimmy Johns menu prices is strict about its delivery policies; it can only deliver sandwiches to places within 5 minutes of their stores to ensure the food maintains its standing of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump inside the road for all the customers not in the small delivery radius of Jimmy John’s, the beloved sandwich chain is hosting a “Home in the Zone” contest, where the grand prize is $250,000 towards purchasing a home inside a Jimmy John’s delivery bubble.
“At Jimmy Johns, were committed to Freaky Fast and Freaky Fresh, Jimmy John’s Chief Marketing Officer John Shea said in a press release. Although that means we cant deliver sandwiches to our own customers who live outside our Delivery Zones, we are able to deliver our customers to our sandwiches.
For sandwich obsessives/home-owners who already live inside the gilded walls of a Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and for that reason don’t be entitled to the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s is providing prizes to five winners to obtain free sandwiches (and delivery) to have an entire year.
The contest begins on August 12 and run until October 4. To get into, Jimmy John’s enthusiasts will have to explain — in 250 words or less — why they would like to live inside a sandwich delivery zone.
Here’s the starting of our entry: Aside from the wish to be near a Jimmy John’s, it’d be nice — as millennials with crippling student debt and mounting living costs — to own property, too.
The sandwich gods have often heard your prayers and answered them. On Wednesday, Jimmy John’s told Thrillist it has officially added two brand new fixtures to its permanent menu which are inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano and the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As the name suggests, the Jimmy Johns is really a reinterpretation of the native Florida classic, the Cuban. It features bacon and smoked ham, slices of provolone cheese, pickles, and a mixture of mayonnaise hgknhg Dijon mustard on Jimmy John’s fresh-baked bread. It’s salty, creamy, and loaded with pickles and bacon — a whole new take on the Cuban we’re significantly cool with.
The Spicy East Coast Italian contains double layers of genoa salami and capicola, provolone, hot cherry peppers, and mayo, all cooled off with sliced onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. It’s basically a fiery, meatier twist on the sub chain’s existing Italian Night Club.
