I mean, who said you can't have your sub and eat it too?

Jimmy John's French Dips

What you'll need at home:

1 pack of your favorite au jus mix 

About 5 minutes of your time!


Au Jus Mix


What to do: 

1. Turn your oven's broiler on and let it heat up! 

2. In a small sauce pan, follow the instructions on your package of au jus mix. (Mine just required some water and heat, pretty easy, eh?)

3. As your au jus mix is turning into yummy, liquid goodness, pop your subs into the oven with the top open. Broil until the bread is toasty and the cheese is melted!

4. Remove subs from the oven and let 'em cool for a bit. Remove your au jus from the heat and transfer to dipping bowls! 

5. Get dippin'!

One of my favorite stories


Julian Cano
"One of our regulars has been coming to our store for over 3 years and she has a super customized order, but I know it by heart. When she comes in, we always have it ready for her. We barely talked in the beginning, but after a while I learned her name and she started confiding in me about her son. Her son is autistic and so is my little brother.  One day she came in and she made these cool, handmade autism awareness bracelets. She didn’t even get food, she just came in out of nowhere and was like, ‘Here, I wanted you to have this.' So I was like, oh man, it got me choked up a little. She’s sweet and she didn’t have to do that. That’s one of my favorite stories."

-Julian Cano, General Manager, Mesa, AZ #2448

I love taking care of my managers!


Alison Wofford

"We love seeing people grow into management positions and beyond. We hired two employees to work with me when we opened our Lake Havasu City, Arizona store in 2014 and now one of them is an operating partner with us. It’s been so fun to watch her grow! Different people have different strengths and weaknesses. I love taking care of my managers, so my managers can take care of our team, and our team can take care of our customers.”

-Alison Wofford, Franchisee #331, #2466 & #2739

Cheesy but true!


Tim Recio

"So I know this is kind of cheesy, but the signs hanging in our stores, they’re totally true. There’s one that really sticks with me. I think it says, 'If you don’t step forward you’re always in the same place. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it.' It’s really true. It’s important."

-Tim Recio, Delivery Driver, Normal, IL #2714

Mini Jimmy-cation: Phoenix, AZ


We're off on another adventure, and what better place than the Valley of the Sun? ☀️☀️☀️


PHOENIX, what's up?!


Here are just a few of my favorite places to visit while in town:


1. Roosevelt Row Art's District

Street art galore! Take a walk through the district, you won't regret it.

Jimmy John's - Roosevelt Row Arts District

And you gotta take some photos because this artwork makes the BEST back drop. 📸


2. Phoenix Botanical Garden

Located right next to the Phoenix Zoo this is the perfect spot for a picnic with some kick a$$ views!

Jimmy John's - Desert Botanical Garden

Just keep an eye on those ducks. You love my fresh baked bread, and so do they!


3. Tonto National Forest

Take a short drive toward Mesa and you'll eventually run into the Tonto National Forest. If you're lucky, you'll catch a glimpse of some wild horses!

Jimmy John's - Tonto National Forest

You'll get even luckier carrying around some Mini Jimmys. 👍


4. Arizona State University

On your way back, swing by campus! Lots to see and even more to do...

Jimmy John's - ASU Palm Walk

Like stare at a box of sandwiches. That's my favorite.

I take pride in that!


Pat Ventura

"I’m not really the type of guy to work behind a desk and I wasn’t the greatest student. School just wasn’t my deal. I always enjoyed working way more than going to the library, ya know? I like coming to work at JJ’s. I worked like 30-35 hours a week when I was going to school, and sometimes I’d skip a class, just to pick up a shift. I like being on my feet, talking to coworkers and customers. I take pride in that."

-Pat Ventura, General Manager, Normal, IL #2714

Making sandwiches is my favorite part


Jared Bacus

"You always need to work in your stores. I’m 10 years in and I’m still in my stores every day. That’s the best way to do it! Your employees want to see you in the store. Nobody likes having the boss that just sits back and collects checks. They want to see that you still make sandwiches and, honestly, I still love it. It’s my favorite part."

-Jared Bacus, Jimmy John's Owner, Phoenix, AZ,  Mesa, AZ, Colby, KS & Prescott Valley, AZ

I believe in these people



Joseph Watson

"For the first year and a half that I worked at JJ’s, I didn’t have a car. I walked a half hour to and from work. Now I have my own apartment and my own car, and this company is the reason I have those things. I can count on the people here and they take care of me. Our owners, Marc and Mary, and our General Manager, Pat, have been incredibly gracious to me. I believe in these people, I believe in the product, and I believe in the individuals that make the product. I just love these people so damn much and I would literally do anything for them. Their hearts run this place."

- Joseph Watson, 2nd Assistant Manager, Normal, IL #2714



My Passion


Jimmy John's Employee

"I’ve played guitar for about 11 years now. It’s something I wind down with at the end of the day, or any time really. When I just feel like hanging out, chillin’, or need to get something off my mind; whether I’m happy or sad I just pick it up and go to that place."

-Austin Doyle, Inshop, Normal, IL #2714
