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 filled 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 away from the delivery selection of your preferred restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is wanting to modify that. After all, Jimmy Johns catering menu is strict about its delivery policies; it is going to only deliver sandwiches to places within five minutes with their stores to guarantee the food maintains its standing of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump within the road for all of the customers not inside 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 inside a Jimmy John’s delivery bubble.
“At Jimmy Johns, were dedicated 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 the sandwiches.
For sandwich obsessives/home-owners who already live inside the gilded walls of the Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and therefore don’t be eligible for the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s is offering prizes to five winners to have free sandwiches (and delivery) for an entire year.
The contest begins on August 12 and run until October 4. To enter, Jimmy John’s enthusiasts will need to explain — in 250 words or less — why they wish to live in 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 possess 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 completely new fixtures to its permanent menu which are inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano and also the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As its name suggests, the jjs menu is a reinterpretation from 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 brand 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.
