I must be living in a cave. I have not heard about JJs somewhat controversial business practices. May have to rethink my choice in subs. Thanks all for the heads up.

I wish Jersey Mike's had a drive-through in my area. Jimmie John's does but you have to order a "#1" this or a '#8' that & I have too many kids for that to work.

One despises mayo, one likes extra mayo, one wants no veggies or a different cheese or no peppers or ... etc .

You're allowed to customize your sandwiches. If you don't want mayo, you ask them to hold the mayo. If you want a different cheese, you ask them for a different cheese. If you don't want veggies, you hold the veggies.

Happily, the somebody sued and the court struck down his ability to continue doing it. And made all the signed non-compete agreements invalid.

But I'm personally still not going to spend money there. . .

Glad someone mentioned. Like many of you I won't give Jimmy Johns my money. Sandwiches are lousy and overpriced.
It's one of those "how do they stay in business?" places for me.

But Jersey Mike's? #13 and Doritos.

Come on... You really think the food at JJs is bad? I really liked it and my go to at JMs is the #13 also. I thought JJs Italian sub was better in all honesty all being equal.

ps: wife and I were in Memphis this past May. Gus's chicken was the bomb!

I completely agree. I will never go to a Jimmy John's.

I'm pleasantly surprised. I figured someone would attack me for being a snowflake. LOL!
