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 almost anything delivered — milk teas packed 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 chosen restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is trying to change that. After all, Jimmy Johns menu prices is strict about its delivery policies; it can only deliver sandwiches to places within five minutes with their stores to be sure the food maintains its reputation of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump inside 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, in which the grand prize is $250,000 towards buying a home inside 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 our own customers who live outside of 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 thus don’t be entitled to the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s is providing prizes to five winners to have free sandwiches (and delivery) for the entire year.
The contest begins on August 12 and run until October 4. To get into, Jimmy John’s enthusiasts will need to explain — in 250 words or less — why they wish to live within a sandwich delivery zone.
Here’s the start of our entry: Aside from 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 has officially added two new fixtures to the permanent menu which can be inspired by beloved classic sandwiches: the Jimmy Cubano as well as the Spicy East Coast Italian.
As its name suggests, the Jimmy Johns menu with prices is a reinterpretation of 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 full of pickles and bacon — a new take on the Cuban we’re significantly 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.
