Food delivery is a way of life that has expanded beyond take out containers of fried rice and greasy orders of pizza. You can now get just about everything delivered — milk teas packed with spheres of tapioca, decadent cartons of frozen treats, and sandwiches piled high with cold cuts and squares of cheese.
But what if you reside just outside the delivery range of your favorite restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is wanting to alter that. After all, Jimmy Johns menu with prices is strict about its delivery policies; it will only deliver sandwiches to places within five minutes of the stores to ensure the food maintains its standing of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump within the road for all of the customers not inside the small delivery radius of Jimmy John’s, the beloved sandwich chain is hosting a “Home in the Zone” contest, where the grand prize is $250,000 towards investing in a home in a Jimmy John’s delivery bubble.
“At Jimmy Johns, were dedicated to Freaky Fast and Freaky Fresh, Jimmy John’s Chief Marketing Officer John Shea said in a press release. While that means we cant deliver sandwiches to the customers who live outside of our Delivery Zones, we can deliver our customers to our own sandwiches.
For sandwich obsessives/home-owners who already live within the gilded walls of the Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and therefore don’t be entitled to the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s is providing prizes to five winners to have free sandwiches (and delivery) for the entire year.
The contest begins on August 12 and run until October 4. To get into, Jimmy John’s enthusiasts will have to explain — in 250 words or less — why they want to live in a sandwich delivery zone.
Here’s the start of our entry: Apart from the wish to be near a Jimmy John’s, it’d be nice — as millennials with crippling student debt and mounting living costs — to obtain property, too.
The sandwich gods have heard your prayers and answered them. On Wednesday, Jimmy John’s told Thrillist it has officially added two completely new fixtures to the permanent menu which are inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano and also the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As the name suggests, the Jimmy Johns prices is really a reinterpretation from the native Florida classic, the Cuban. It features bacon and smoked ham, slices of provolone cheese, pickles, and a mix of mayonnaise hgknhg Dijon mustard on Jimmy John’s fresh-baked bread. It’s salty, creamy, and full of pickles and bacon — a whole new take on the Cuban we’re very much cool with.
The Spicy East Coast Italian contains double layers of genoa salami and capicola, provolone, hot cherry peppers, and mayo, all cooled with sliced onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. It’s basically a fiery, meatier twist on the sub chain’s existing Italian Night Club.
