Jimmy John's Franchise, LLC is an American franchised sandwich fast food restaurant chain owned by Inspire Brands. It was founded by Jimmy John Liautaud in and is headquartered in Champaign, Illinois. In 35 years, the company has grown to more than 2, locations[2][3] in all states except Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.[4] As of [update], 98% of the locations are franchise-owned.[2][5] Jimmy John's founder has expressed interest in expanding into Toronto, Canada in the future as well.[6]


After Jimmy John Liautaud graduated second to last in his class at Elgin Academy (), his father gave him the choice to join the military or start a business.[7] Liautaud chose the latter, and his father lent him $25, to start a hot dog business, with the son owning 52% of the business, and his father owning 48%.[8] He soon realized that a hot dog business would cost more than he had, so he decided to open a sandwich shop.[9][10]

On January 13, , the first Jimmy John's opened in a garage in Charleston, Illinois. Paying $ a month in rent, Liautaud could only afford used equipment consisting of a refrigerator, a chest freezer, an oven, and a meat slicer.[11]

The store was able to realize a profit its first year of business, despite the poor location of the store, due to Jimmy John's willingness to deliver his sandwiches to the nearby dorms at Eastern Illinois University, as well as his handing out free samples for marketing purposes.[4][9]

In April , Liautaud bought out his father's interest in the business, becoming the sole owner. In , he opened his second store in Macomb, Illinois, and in , he opened a third in Champaign, Illinois.[citation needed]

In , Liautaud met Jamie Coulter, who would later become the CEO of Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon. Coulter mentored Liautaud and "taught [him] how to effectively run multiple units."[9]

Liautaud continued opening more stores and developed a prototype before beginning franchising in Franchising continued until when Liautaud stopped selling franchises for one year to give support to stores that were struggling.[12] The first franchise store opened in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. In , the hundredth Jimmy John's store opened in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. In , the five-hundredth store opened in Seattle, Washington, and in , the thousandth opened in Beaverton, Oregon.[13]

As of March , Jimmy John's has almost 3, stores with plans for expansion up to 5, and beyond.[14]

CNNMoney listed Jimmy John's as one of ten "Great Franchise Bets." The company estimates that annual sales can be as high as $ million while net profits can average at about $, Real estate start-up costs are estimated to be between $, and $,[11]

Liautaud realized that in order to grow he would need help acquiring better locations for his stores. Since he had little expertise in real estate, he decided to take on a partner who did. In January , Liautaud sold a 33% stake to Weston Presidio, a San Francisco–based private-equity firm.[15] In the first year after partnering with Weston Presidio, real estate deals were closed.[9]

The company has completed two recapitalizations since Weston Presidio's investment.[16]

In the summer of , pictures of Liautaud posing with big game circulated on social media, leading to increased calls to boycott his restaurants. In an interview in with the Chicago Tribune, Liautaud said, "I don't hunt big African game anymore."[4]

In September , Jimmy John's announced that Roark Capital Group had agreed to acquire a majority stake in the company. Terms of the transaction were not immediately disclosed, though it was later clarified that Liautaud retained 35% ownership of the company as part of the deal.[17] As part of the agreement, Liautaud would continue as chairman of the board.[18][19]

On September 25, , Inspire Brands (affiliated with Roark Capital Group) announced that it was buying Jimmy John's for an unspecified amount in a deal unanimously approved by Liautaud and the rest of the Jimmy John's board of directors.[20] At the close of the deal, Liautaud will step down as chairman of the company and transition to become an adviser to the brand.[21][22][23] The acquisition was completed on October [24]

Labor relations[edit]

In , when the Industrial Workers of the World attempted to unionize ten Minneapolis locations, The New York Times called the effort "one of the few efforts to organize fast-food workers in American history."[25] In July , the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit found that the National Labor Relations Act did not protect Jimmy John's employees from being fired for exhibiting legally disloyal conduct by attacking the company's product to oppose a franchisee's sick leave policy.[26][27]

In October , it was revealed that employees at Jimmy John's, including sandwich makers and delivery drivers, were required to sign non-compete agreements as a condition of employment.[28][29] The agreement restricted the employee from working for a competitor for two years, where a competitor was defined as a business which derives more than ten percent of its revenue from selling sandwiches and is located within three miles of any Jimmy John's. Additionally, the employee could not work for another Jimmy John's franchisee for a year.[30] Jimmy John's has since settled related lawsuits filed by the Attorneys General of New York and Illinois. In statements, the company clarified that it had taken steps to remove non-compete agreements from their new hire paperwork long before they were contacted by the Attorneys General, and that "enforcement of non-compete agreements against our own hourly store employees is not a part of Jimmy John's culture or business model."[31]


Jimmy John's has three bread options--French, Thick-Sliced Wheat, and the six-inch "Lil' John" (smaller version of French bread)--as well as a lettuce wrap option known as the Unwich. Jimmy John's has 17 different numbered sandwiches plus a B.L.T., called the J.J.B.L.T, and the Gargantuan, a combination of all the meats. The 17 sandwiches may have ham, roast beef, tuna, turkey, salami, capicola, bacon, or provolone cheese or combine two or more meats and cheese. Jimmy John's has five flavors of chips including Regular, BBQ, Jalapeño, Salt and Vinegar, and Thinny (low-fat version of the Regular). The menu also includes kosher dill pickles as well as "triple chunk" chocolate and oatmeal raisin cookies.[32]


Jimmy John's was named #1 on the Entrepreneur Franchise [33] In , YouGov BrandIndex ranked restaurant chains that have the highest millennial brand loyalty, and Jimmy John's topped the ranking with 83% of the vote based on restaurants they would consider going to again.[34] Jimmy John's was named the #2 Most Popular Restaurant for Business Meals by expense reporting program Certify.[35] In , Entrepreneur.com named Jimmy John's one of the 10 Promising Franchises for Ambitious Entrepreneurs.[36] In March , Jimmy John's won Franchise Times' "Deal of the Year" for attracting Roark Capital Group as the company's new majority owner. FT's judges called the deal "one of the best private equity deals of all time in the restaurant business."[37]


In September , Jimmy John's donated $1 million to the Folds of Honor Foundation, a foundation which supports the families of killed or disabled soldiers.[38] During the school year, Jimmy John's donated more than laptop computers to the Champaign Unit 4 School District.[39] Jimmy John's donated $, to the Champaign Parks Foundation to support the Youth Scholarship Program in November [40]

In June , Jimmy John's donated $, to EAT (RED) SAVE LIVES to offer HIV/AIDS medication in sub-Saharan Africa.[41]

FDA warning[edit]

In the letter, the FDA says the Iowa Department of Public Health reported that, as of January , a total of 22 people were infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli. "20 of the 22 case individuals were interviewed by the Iowa Department of Public Health," the FDA says.

At Least 16 Customers Are Sick After Eating At This Popular Sandwich Chain

A new case of suspected food poisoning at a major fast-food chain is being investigated in Illinois. According to the latest reports, several customers have fallen ill after eating at a Jimmy John's location in Bloomington.

Food Safety News reports that there have been at least 16 cases of illness, 15 of which were student athletes from Illinois State University's lacrosse team. According to iwaspoisoned.com, a website used for reporting cases of food poisoning, several of them required hospital treatment for fluid replacement because of severe vomiting and diarrhea.

The incident is being investigated both by the McLean County Health Department who received initial reports of the illness on April 7, as well as by state officials.

"We continue to investigate the foodborne illness(es) and can confirm the number of people affected has gone beyond the initially reported cases on the ISU campus last week," Marianne Manko, public affairs coordinator for the county health department, told Food Safety News. "We have not completed the investigation. We are working daily with the Illinois Department of Public Health to ensure proper public health measures are enacted if we suspect a foodborne illness could remain a threat, even when we have not positively identified an illness or its source."

In the meantime, the implicated Jimmy John's restaurant on West Market Street has been temporarily closed down as a precaution. However, the chain has issued a statement saying there is still no definitive connection between the food poisoning cases and their food.
