Jimmy Johns Reviews and Complaints @ Pissed Consumer
Jimmy John's is one of the upstart sandwich shops that's putting a hurt on longtime staples like Subway , and it's no wonder. Founded in , they staked their reputation on freshly made food with the best ingredients they can source, made so fast you could be in and out the door before you know it. Their mission statement is all about meat products made in the USA, bread that's baked fresh daily, and sustainable practices. They even stress their dedication to green practices from recycling to sustainable farming, and point out that wherever their stores are, they rely on small businesses, contractors, plumbers, electricians, and sign-makers to make them who they are. Sounds great, right? It all sounds like everything's come together to make Jimmy John's the responsible choice if you want to get a good lunch at a place that's going to do right by those around them. But there's always more to the story, so what is it that you don't know about this freaky fast chain?
Now, in a move that will likely upend countless lunch plans, the sandwich chain is doing exactly that. In fact, the GIANT size is twice the length of the original subs and comes with twice the meat and toppings, according to a spokesperson. And no, this isn't just a single new sandwich, it's a new size option for any French bread sandwich on the menu.
The food was average for a sandwich of this type and cost. I like their sides that are offered and the speed of service is great! Worth running into or ordering delivery.
