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 almost anything delivered — milk teas filled with spheres of tapioca, decadent cartons of ice cream, and sandwiches piled high with cold cuts and squares of cheese.
But what if you live just outside the delivery selection of your preferred restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is wanting to modify that. All things considered, Jimmy john’s is strict about its delivery policies; it can 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 in 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 the grand prize is $250,000 towards buying a home inside 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 inside the gilded walls of the Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and for that reason don’t be entitled to the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s is providing prizes to five winners to obtain free sandwiches (and delivery) for an 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 wish to live in 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 heard your prayers and answered them. On Wednesday, Jimmy John’s told Thrillist it provides officially added two brand new fixtures to its permanent menu that are inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano and also the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As its name suggests, the Jimmy Johns menu 2020 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 filled with pickles and bacon — a whole 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.
