I work for Jimmy Johns in Michigan. I work for a franchise. Our franchise doesn't skimp on meats and cheese. We will always send you out a new sub no charge with a free side if it was made incorrectly. We turn down our music if its too loud for you. We will always greet you as enthusiastically as possible. We make 30 second subs and deliver in under 5 minutes. Period. We also own all the chains in Arizona.
Jimmy Johns General Manager.
Because the "Vito" is so tasty I would patronize a Jimmy John's that doesn't scream
their "enthusiastic greeting" and deafen me with their FOREGROUND
(as opposed to background) music.
Sadly, these do not exist in my part of Texas (McKinney/Plano). The one time I asked for the music to be lowered the "attitude" was as though I'd farted in church and the "lowering" was insultingly imperceptible.
I know that (which annoys me so) is part of JJ's "corporate kitch" because it pleases/mimics the personality of the CEO, but please know that it is costing him, his franchisees, and you $ales. In my mind all that hoopla and racket is as corporately stupid as it would be for Domino's to insist on putting anchovies on every pizza just because their CEO is a huge anchovy fan.
WRT: portions - while the subs prepared for in-store consumption are adequately portioned, the "catered" versions are very
skimpy on the meat & cheese.
