My Biggest Accomplishment


Tyler Mihu - Jimmy John's

"I’m comfortable here, and I like working at a fast pace. I’ve worked a lot of different jobs and left them after a few months each. I guess I wasn’t reliable at the time, or I just didn’t find something I really enjoyed. This is probably my biggest accomplishment; I’ve been here for almost 4 years, and I haven’t given it up! I don’t plan to either!"

Blown away by the culture


Paul Wofford

“I went to a Jimmy John’s in Indianapolis and I was blown away by the culture, the contemporary feel, and the simple menu. It was spotless and the employees were so with it. I thought, WOW, this is something else. We started researching, and visited other Jimmy John’s locations. We went through a drive thru and I see a young employee dancing and singing while washing dishes, loving her job. Now when was the last time you saw that at a restaurant?!”

I Worked My Way Up


Steven Forzano

"I've been with the company about 3 years. I had never heard of Jimmy John's until I started working here. I was new to the state, they didn't have it where I was from. But I'm proud of how I worked my way up. Started as a driver, then Manger in Training, the 2nd Assistant, 1st Assistant, now I'm the General Manager. The classic story, except it only took about 9 months. I didn't expect that to happen, not that fast."
