Food delivery is a way of life which has expanded beyond take out containers of fried rice and greasy orders of pizza. You can now get just about everything delivered — milk teas loaded with spheres of tapioca, decadent cartons of ice cream, and sandwiches piled high with cold cuts and squares of cheese.
But what if you reside just outside the delivery range of your chosen restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is trying to modify that. After all, Jimmy Johns near me is strict about its delivery policies; it is going to only deliver sandwiches to places within a few minutes with their stores to guarantee the food maintains its reputation of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump inside 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 within the Zone” contest, in which the grand prize is $250,000 towards buying a home inside a Jimmy John’s delivery bubble.
“At Jimmy Johns, were committed 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 our Delivery Zones, we can deliver our customers to our sandwiches.
For sandwich obsessives/home-owners who already live in the gilded walls of any Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and therefore don’t be entitled to the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s is offering prizes to five winners to get 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 need to explain — in 250 words or less — why they would like 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 possess property, too.
The sandwich gods have often heard your prayers and answered them. On Wednesday, Jimmy John’s told Thrillist it has officially added two new fixtures to its permanent menu which can be inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano as well as the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As the name suggests, the Jimmy Johns subs is really a reinterpretation in the native Florida classic, the Cuban. It features bacon and smoked ham, slices of provolone cheese, pickles, and a combination of mayonnaise hgknhg Dijon mustard on Jimmy John’s fresh-baked bread. It’s salty, creamy, and full of pickles and bacon — a new take on the Cuban we’re greatly 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.
