If you're looking for a cheap lunch option tomorrow, you might be interested to know that Jimmy John's locations around Milwaukee will offer a $1 sandwich promotion at participating storesÂ between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 21.
The deal is part of aÂ Nationwide Customer Appreciation day promotion, the details of which I'll share in just a moment. But first, I want to give you an example of the sort of customer for which Jimmy John's should beÂ truly grateful.
For years, before I took on food writing for a living, I worked at Marquette University. And during my last few years of employment there, I worked with a colleague who was seemingly a Jimmy Johnâ€™s devotee.
While others in the office sought out burgers from Sobelman's or burritos from Qdoba, Mark always seemed to be happy with Jimmy John's. In fact, without fail, sometimes for months on end, he made the two-block trek to the nearest Jimmy Johnâ€™s shop, where he ordered and ate his lunch. I donâ€™t recall if he ate exactly the same sandwich every time, but I do recall being floored that he never seemed to tire of the daily ritual.
Suffice it to say, he probably spent enough money at Jimmy John's to warrant a week's worth of $1 sandwich promos.
How to get your $1 sandwich
Fortunately for the rest of you, the offer isn't limited to super-dedicated Jimmy Johnâ€™s streak eaters.
But, before you bust your butt trying to get to the nearest Jimmy Johnâ€™s, you should note that, apparently, there are a few rules.Â
Thereâ€™s a limit of one sub per person, and you do have to go to the store to get it (no freaky fast delivery).
Not every sandwich is $1. Youâ€™re limited to menu items #1-6, along with the BLT and Slims.
- All $1 sandwiches come on Jimmy Johnâ€™s French bread (though it seems their JJ Unwich lettuce wraps may also be available).
Â And, if Iâ€™m reading this tweet correctly, you might want to do a little dance once you make that $1 investment in your lunch.…Read more...
