Food delivery is a way of life that has expanded beyond take out containers of fried rice and greasy orders of pizza. Now you can get just about anything delivered — milk teas filled with spheres of tapioca, decadent cartons of frozen treats, and sandwiches piled high with cold cuts and squares of cheese.
But what if you live just away from the delivery selection of your preferred restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is trying to change that. All things considered, Jimmy Johns hours is strict about its delivery policies; it can only deliver sandwiches to places within five minutes of the stores to ensure the food maintains its reputation of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump inside the road for all the customers not in the small delivery radius of Jimmy John’s, the beloved sandwich chain is hosting a “Home inside the Zone” contest, where grand prize is $250,000 towards purchasing a home in 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. Although that means we cant deliver sandwiches to the customers who live outside our Delivery Zones, we can deliver our customers to the sandwiches.
For sandwich obsessives/home-owners who already live inside the gilded walls of the 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 have free sandwiches (and delivery) to have an entire year.
The contest begins on August 12 and run until October 4. To enter, Jimmy John’s enthusiasts will need to explain — in 250 words or less — why they wish to live inside a sandwich delivery zone.
Here’s the starting of our entry: Besides the desire 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 often heard your prayers and answered them. On Wednesday, Jimmy John’s told Thrillist it offers officially added two brand new fixtures to its permanent menu which are inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano and also the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As its name suggests, the Jimmy Johns prices is 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 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 with sliced onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. It’s basically a fiery, meatier twist on the sub chain’s existing Italian Night Club.
