Mini Jimmy-cation: Las Vegas, NV

06/28/2017

✈️ Watch out! We're headed to the Sin City...

 

AKA the City of Lights✨...

 

AKA America's Playground...

 

Yep, LAS VEGAS!

 

Here are some Not-So-Vegas-Things to do in Vegas (because, let's face it, we all know what The Strip has to offer):

 

1. Neon Boneyard Park

This park stretches over 6 acres and features thousands of old Vegas casino signs! 

Jimmy John's Neon Boneyard Park

I'm gonna be honest, it was 115 degrees the day I visited so the park was closed. BUT here's a photo of the outside sign! Enjoy!

 

2. Fremont Street

It's just underrated. If you want that Vegas experience, but the old school way...Fremont is the place to be.

Jimmy John's Fremont Street

And as if things aren't good enough on Fremont, the closest JJ's is 3 minutes away! So close you can smell that fresh baked bread...

 

3. Seven Magic Mountains

These colorful boulder towers are stacked over 30 feet high and just 30 minutes from The Strip. YOU MUST GO! And fast!

Jimmy John's Seven Magic Mountains

It's only viewable until May 2018! So grab a snack (Jimmy John's would probably be the best option), a friend (Jimmy John's might be a good option for this too), and go see it!

 

4. Lake Mead

If you've never seen a GIGANTIC lake in the middle of a desert then you should probably go see Lake Mead. I mean, it's a lake....in the middle of the desert.

Jimmy John's Lake MeadRemember to bring plenty of water and food doesn't hurt either. Especially when it's made with all-natural meats that are hand-sliced daily...

 

5. Hoover Dam

While you're visiting Lake Mead stop by the Hoover Dam, it's incredible!

Jimmy John's Hoover Dam

Dam, that's a good lookin' sandwich.

 

Some may say it's dam good, dam fast, dam fresh...

 

...and dam tasty...

We love our customers!

06/21/2017

Jimmy John's Employee

"We have a regular who comes in almost every day and we always talk. My wife and I have become really good friends with him and his wife. We’ve even gone to Thanksgiving at their house and have gone to a Diamondbacks game. We talk in and out of work. I love building relationships and that’s something that goes back to when I first moved here from Mexico. I couldn’t speak English for like 8 years. So, once I was able to speak the language I was like, ‘Talk to me, I want to be your friend!' One of the coolest things about working at Jimmy John’s is that I get to build relationships with our customers and sometimes even make good friends.”

Jimmy Fresh™ Sauces ’n Sides

06/15/2017

Jimmy Fresh™ doesn’t stop with hand sliced, all-natural meats, locally purchased produce or fresh baked bread.

Each and every ingredient and product we use is best in class, highest quality and as good as it gets.

The only mayo we use in our stores is Hellmann’s Real Mayo®. It’s the best mayo you can buy and when the taste of red ripe tomatoes, crispy lettuce and all-natural meats combine with Hellmann’s® on my fresh baked bread, nothing can beat it.

Jimmy John's Condiments

 

We make all of our Italian Vinaigrette in-house by hand every day and use StarKist® tuna in our homemade tuna salad because it's the best.

We use Grey Poupon® Dijon mustard. Sure, there’s a cheaper and lower quality Dijon out there, but it's not worth compromising quality and taste.

Our kettle cooked potato chips are made with real potatoes. Regular Jimmy Chips and Thinny Chips are just potatoes, peanut oil and salt. That’s it.

Thinny and Regular Jimmy Chips

Our Salt and Vinegar, Jalapeño and BBQ chips are as clean as we can make them and still keep them tasting yummy!

JimmyJohnsChips

Our Triple Chocolate Chunk and Oatmeal Raisin cookies use real butter, real eggs, real vanilla and real Ghirardelli® chocolate chips. It costs a little more, but it's worth it to make the highest quality, tastiest cookies. 

Jimmy John's Cookies

This is the way it's always been, I just haven't told you until now!

Find Your Passion

Jimmy John's Employee

"I got lost for a little bit and wound up in a bit of a rut, but life goes on. A month ago I walked up the street and I see JJ’s with a sign that says, ‘Now Hiring!’ And my passion, my true passion is the same as my father’s, to simply feed people, and it doesn’t matter what position I’m in. Like here at Jimmy John's, I have my role. I’m the man on the slicer, who is going to slice this beautiful meat for our customers, every single morning. This is my passion."

-Adam Elbaz, Inshop, Nashville, TN #1801

Fresh Sliced Produce

06/01/2017

Since 1983, we’ve been slicing fresh produce by hand every single day, in every single store. It takes a little more time and a little more integrity, but it's worth it. 

We buy our veggies locally and they are delivered fresh to their community’s Jimmy John’s.

While you’re sleeping, JJ Rockstars are in their shops, checking each and every vegetable for quality, prepping, and then hand slicing them to make you a homemade sub from scratch.

Nothing comes to us pre-sliced and we use only the highest quality ingredients.

Tomatoes being washed at Jimmy John's

We unbox the lettuce heads, tomatoes and cucumbers, wash them, slice them and serve to you on your favorite sandwich.

We unbox the celery stalks, remove the ugly ends, wash them, slice them and mix them into our homemade tuna salad.

We peel the onion skins and slice them for your sub or dice them for tuna salad.

Everyday, we spend 6 hours slice and baking to make you a 30 second sub.

Jimmy John's employee prepping cucumbers

There’s nothing like the taste of fresh, red, ripe Roma tomatoes, crisp shredded lettuce or fresh sliced cucumbers. Combine it with my fresh baked bread, all-natural meats and tasty, real Hellmann's mayo, and you'll see where the magic happens.

All the little things we do make us better than anyone else. That’s why we’re Jimmy Fresh™.

Where Fresh and Fast Meet

05/31/2017

Jimmy John's Employee

“We do a lot of little things that make 2 big things happen: speed & quality. Jimmy John’s is where fresh and fast meet. No one can match our Freaky Fast ® service, but more importantly, our ingredients are best in class. I locally purchase produce 2-3 times a week. Typically it’s going on someone’s sandwich and out the door that day. The lettuce I’m hand slicing right now was delivered yesterday! Quality ingredients are huge, and if they aren’t Jimmy Fresh then I don’t feel comfortable selling them.”

-Jon Gonzalez, General Manager, North Little Rock, AR, #1505

All-Natural Meat!

05/25/2017

Did you know that there are Rockstars in over 2,700 Jimmy John’s across the United States that are hand slicing my all-natural meats in-shop every single day?

If you didn't, now you do.

JImmy John's employee slicing JJ's all-natural meats

My meats are all-natural and best in class. They have no artificial ingredients, no added hormones, no artificial preservatives, no nitrates and no added nitrites. They are MSG free and phosphate free.

There is no grinding, no tumbling, no fill, and they are as pure as it gets.

Jimmy John's all-natural capicola

They are fresh and never frozen. We season them with basic seasonings, let ‘em sit overnight and then roast them in an oven. They are then boxed and delivered fresh to your local Jimmy John’s. 

We slice them by hand in every single store, every single day and have since I first opened in 1983. That big fancy slicer isn't just for decoration!

We Keep It Jimmy Fresh™

05/24/2017

Jimmy John's Employee

"I get here at 6am every morning and my local produce guy is always on time. He brings everything I need for the day: fresh heads of lettuce, red ripe tomatoes, fresh celery & onions. Our produce is used almost immediately. It’s locally purchased & delivered, and hand sliced that morning. We’ll go through one truck order of produce in 1-2 days, so our produce is never more than 2 days old. We’re keeping it fresh, and our customers can tell the difference. It’s the same stuff we’ve done since day one, we’re just telling people about it now!” 

-Justin Moore, General Manager, Little Rock, AR #1722

Jimmy Fresh Bread

05/19/2017

Rumor has it there are a lot of folks out there who dig my buns. It’s cuz I got a world class…bread. 😏

Jimmy John's Bread

Since 1983, I’ve been baking my bread fresh in-house. We thaw it, stretch it, rise it and bake it right where you can see us. It’s baked all day everyday, and we never make a sandwich on French bread that’s more than 4 hours old. After 4 hours, we wrap it up and sell it as Day Old bread!

Jimmy John's employee stretching bread

My 9-grain thick sliced wheat bread is baked fresh every morning, hand sliced by JJ Rockstars and put in a container where you can see it. We use every slice throughout the day and then we thaw it, bake it and slice it all again the next morning.

That’s Jimmy Fresh.

Jimmy John's wheat bread

My bread is world class. The ingredients in my bread are world class. It costs a little more and I could use cheaper quality ingredients, but I don’t.

It’s that simple. Really.

TASTING IS BELIEVING

05/17/2017

Jimmy John's Employee

"Guerilla Marketers travel to different Jimmy John’s across the United States and teach them how to effectively sample in their community. Talking to someone face to face and handing them a free sample sandwich means a lot more than sending a coupon in the mail. It also gives people a chance to taste our sandwiches if they haven’t already, and our sandwiches are as fresh as they get with fresh sliced all-natural meats and cheese, locally purchased produce sliced by hand and fresh baked bread that’s never over four hours old! That’s why sampling works!" 

-Emma Newman, Guerrilla Marketer, Champaign, IL
