Food delivery is a way of life which has expanded beyond take out containers of fried rice and greasy orders of pizza. Now you can get almost anything delivered — milk teas loaded with spheres of tapioca, decadent cartons of ice cream, and sandwiches piled high with cold cuts and squares of cheese.
But what if you live just outside of the delivery selection of your preferred restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is attempting to modify that. In the end, Jjs menu is strict about its delivery policies; it can only deliver sandwiches to places within a few minutes of their stores to guarantee the food maintains its reputation of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump inside the road for all the customers not within the small delivery radius of Jimmy John’s, the beloved sandwich chain is hosting a “Home within the Zone” contest, in which the grand prize is $250,000 towards investing in a home in 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 customers who live away from our Delivery Zones, we could deliver our customers to our own sandwiches.
For sandwich obsessives/home-owners who already live inside the gilded walls of the Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and thus don’t be eligible for the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s is offering prizes to five winners to have free sandwiches (and delivery) for the entire year.
The contest begins on August 12 and run until October 4. To get in, Jimmy John’s enthusiasts will have to explain — in 250 words or less — why they would like to live within a sandwich delivery zone.
Here’s the beginning of our entry: Besides 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 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 that are inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano as well as the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As its name suggests, the Jimmy Johns near me is actually a reinterpretation from the native Florida classic, the Cuban. It features bacon and smoked ham, slices of provolone cheese, pickles, and a mix of mayonnaise hgknhg Dijon mustard on Jimmy John’s fresh-baked bread. It’s salty, creamy, and filled with pickles and bacon — a new take on the Cuban we’re greatly 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.
