Company Description


Jimmy John’s is a sub sandwich chain founded by James John Liautaud in 1983. Liautaud is still the majority owner of the company, although in 2007 he sold a third of his shares to an equity firm, Weston Presidio, out of San Francisco. Unlike most other sandwich chains, Jimmy John’s offers a delivery service, which it advertises as being “freakishly fast.”

The franchise has experienced rapid growth, and doubled its total units since 2011. As of 2015, Jimmy John’s had nearly 2,500 locations throughout the United States. Approximately 98 percent of Jimmy John’s units are franchised.
