We use locally purchased produce, which is brought in fresh and hand sliced daily. Our tuna salad is made from scratch by hand.

Our bread bakers bake our French bread all day, every day. We try and manage bread so that all French bread served is less than four hours old. If you like whole grain wheat bread, try the 9-grain sliced wheat bread – same deal, thick sliced and pretty close to perfect.
We use Hellmann’s® real mayo, Grey Poupon®, pure olive oil blend, red wine vinegar, and oregano-basil. Combine these with Jimmy John’s fresh bread, sliced meats, wild-caught tuna, and real cheese – that’s genuinely fresh!
