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 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 are living just outside the delivery selection of your preferred restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is trying to modify that. In the end, Jimmy Johns is strict about its delivery policies; it is going to only deliver sandwiches to places within five minutes with their stores to guarantee the food maintains its trustworthiness of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump within the road for all of the customers not in the small delivery radius of Jimmy John’s, the beloved sandwich chain is hosting a “Home within 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 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 inside the gilded walls of a Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and for that reason don’t be eligible for the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s offers 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 in, Jimmy John’s enthusiasts will need to explain — in 250 words or less — why they would like to live inside a sandwich delivery zone.
Here’s the beginning 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 possess property, too.
The sandwich gods often hear your prayers and answered them. On Wednesday, Jimmy John’s told Thrillist it provides officially added two 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 its name suggests, the Jimmy Johns subs menu is really a reinterpretation from 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 loaded with 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 off with sliced onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. It’s basically a fiery, meatier twist on the sub chain’s existing Italian Night Club.
