Never tried the tuna, but the other sandiwches are all good. Italian and Turkey Tom are the best in my opinion.

I would argue that The Club Lulu is better. Same Sandwich but with Turkey.

RE: Does anyone eat at Jimmy Johns?
They are monopolizing the sandwich market. I get it sometimes since it's a next door business.

But why is it so popular?

This sandwich I get has only turkey, lettuce, avocado and mayo.

you can put anything you want in Subway.

Is it because of their delivery?
Is it because they make it so fast? (they usually make it in 10 seconds. if it takes 10 seconds to make it, you know the quality....)

I am jealous as a business owner but I can't really see the clear reason why it's so popular.

There are only three things that are good about Jimmy Johns:

1. The bread they use to make the sandwiches is good

2. The sandwiches are made really quickly

3. They deliver.

Amazing, like you said, that they could capitalize on just that.

Their portion sizes are big and the Gargantuan is a great sandwich. Sometimes I feel like I'm getting played out when I go to Subway & get a footlong. Also, it seems to me as though the ingredients are a little fresher than Subway. I see guys in Jimmy Johns cutting deli meat on a slicer, but stuff like Meatball Marinara & Oven Roasted Chicken at Subway is straight out of the freezer.

I like that they deliver. Last week me and a friend were grtting plastered by the pool at my apartment when we ordered some sammiches and chips and had the guy come into the pool area to drop them off.

Subway is the dirts. The reason that they give you all of those toppings for free is to hide the fact that their meat has absolutely no taste.

RE: Does anyone eat at Jimmy Johns?
I live down the street from a Jimmy John's and eat there 2-3 times a week. Love the Hunter's Club. I prefer Potbelly's and Erb & Gerb's, but I've never found one of either outside the Midwest (save for a Potbelly's in downtown Portland).

Subway is the McDonald's of delis: flavorless meat, bland bread and awful toppings. No thank you.

Just be cause it's made fast doesn't make it shitty. Everything is set up so you can grab quickly and put it together in an assembly line. Everything is fresh and delicious.

RE: Does anyone eat at Jimmy Johns?
I also noticed different culture when I walked in.

All the employees were upbeat and saying 'hi!'

How do they keep the high energy among employees? I bet they are paying you guys the same as subway employees. Do you get in trouble if you don't say hi to each customers and have high energy all the time? That would be pretty intense emotional labor....

I can't speak for all stores, but our owner is early thirties, managers are mid twenties, and pretty much everyone who works there is college aged. The corporate culture has a chill vibe and a lot of employees have gauges/covered in tattoos, etc. I work with some cool people, so when you're joking around the whole shift it's natural to greet customers.

It's easy to be friendly when you just told a girl on your shift to do the dishes like shes meant to and your manager responds with "good one man".
