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 loaded with spheres of tapioca, decadent cartons of soft ice cream, and sandwiches piled high with cold cuts and squares of cheese.
But what if you reside just outside of the delivery range of your chosen restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is attempting to modify that. All things considered, Jimmy Johns prices is strict about its delivery policies; it is going to only deliver sandwiches to places within five minutes of the stores to be sure the food maintains its reputation of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump within the road for the customers not within the small delivery radius of Jimmy John’s, the beloved sandwich chain is hosting a “Home within the Zone” contest, where grand prize is $250,000 towards buying 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 our own customers who live outside our Delivery Zones, we could deliver our customers to our sandwiches.
For sandwich obsessives/home-owners who already live within the gilded walls of any Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and for that reason don’t qualify for the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s is providing 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 wish to live within a sandwich delivery zone.
Here’s the beginning 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 own property, too.
The sandwich gods have heard your prayers and answered them. On Wednesday, Jimmy John’s told Thrillist it offers officially added two brand new fixtures to the permanent menu which are inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano as well as the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As the name suggests, the Jimmy Johns restaurant is a reinterpretation of the native Florida classic, the Cuban. It features bacon and smoked ham, slices of provolone cheese, pickles, and a mixture of mayonnaise hgknhg Dijon mustard on Jimmy John’s fresh-baked bread. It’s salty, creamy, and filled with pickles and bacon — a brand 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 off with sliced onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. It’s basically a fiery, meatier twist on the sub chain’s existing Italian Night Club.
