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 frozen treats, and sandwiches piled high with cold cuts and squares of cheese.
But what if you reside just away from the delivery range of your chosen restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is trying to modify that. After all, Jimmy Johns menu 2020 is strict about its delivery policies; it can only deliver sandwiches to places within a few minutes of their stores to be sure the food maintains its trustworthiness of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump in the road for all the customers not inside the small delivery radius of Jimmy John’s, the beloved sandwich chain is hosting a “Home in the Zone” contest, where grand prize is $250,000 towards investing in a home in a Jimmy John’s delivery bubble.
“At Jimmy Johns, were focused on 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 our customers who live outside of our Delivery Zones, we are able to deliver our customers to our own sandwiches.
For sandwich obsessives/home-owners who already live within the gilded walls of a Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and therefore don’t be entitled to the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s is providing prizes to five winners to obtain free sandwiches (and delivery) to have an entire year.
The contest begins on August 12 and run until October 4. To get in, Jimmy John’s enthusiasts must explain — in 250 words or less — why they would like to live inside a sandwich delivery zone.
Here’s the start of our entry: Besides 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 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 can be inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano and also the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As the name suggests, the Jimmy Johns 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 loaded with 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 off with sliced onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. It’s basically a fiery, meatier twist on the sub chain’s existing Italian Night Club.
