Jimmy John’s coming to 96 Hudson St. in Hoboken, NJ

4/10/2014 Update:

Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches coming to 96 Hudson Street in Hoboken NJThis could be tremendous news for sandwich lovers in Hoboken – Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches is coming to 96 Hudson Street in June. This is the former location of the doomed Energy Kitchen, who couldn’t survive dishing out 500 calorie war rations as meals.

One business in town which should be shivering in their pants – is Subway. Because Subway just sucks. Sad looking “pre-sliced” meats sitting out all day is just not a good business model anymore. They’ll have to go down to $2 foot-longs to keep customers, and even then they’d go out of business soon as well. So I’m leaning towards “Subway is doomed” (at least one of their two locations).

Anyway, Jimmy John’s is apparently one of the fastest growing franchises in the country, and fans rave about their sandwiches (and bread). This will be the first Jimmy John’s within 20 miles of Hoboken, and the seventh in New Jersey. Here’s a snippit about them:

“What makes Jimmy John’s different from the rest is that it’s honest, it’s damn good, it’s damn fast, at a decent price! Jimmy John’s definition of fresh is worlds apart from everyone else’s. Bread is baked in-house everyday and served fresh. Meat and veggies are sliced fresh in-house everyday. The turkey is real turkey, the roast beef is real roast beef – no additives, no vegetable-based fillers, no fake stuff. Nothing is delivered pre-sliced. Real Hellmann’s mayo, real Grey Poupon, real olive oil and red wine vinegar – it’s the best of the best.”

Now do you believe me that Subway will be “on the ropes?”

We’ll check back later this summer to see if they hold true on their promises…

    Certainly hope that they don’t need employer-provided healthcare…

    Jimmy John’s CEO, Obamacare Opponent, Donated To Swanky Private Health Clinic
    A CEO who has publicly railed against the cost of providing health insurance to his employees has donated tens of thousands of dollars to a private health care clinic in his Florida community.

    In an interview with Fox News host Neil Cavuto last month, Jimmy John Liautaud detailed his plans to reduce workers’ hours in order to avoid the Affordable Care Act’s requirement to provide health coverage or pay a penalty.

    Liautaud, who owns the Jimmy John’s national sandwich chain, is listed as a “Super Founder” for the medical center at Key Largo’s ritzy Ocean Reef Club. The club’s website describes it as one of America’s most exclusive club communities. Amenities include 54 holes of golf, a 175-slip marina, a private airport and its own school, which members’ children can attend seasonally. In 2011, Liautaud paid $4 million for a home at the Ocean Reef Club, according to a local business journal.

    The club’s medical center relies on donations from residents because it stays open year-round but only brings in significant income for six or seven months. The “Super Founder” list names those who have given at least $50,000.

    While the clinic is geared mainly toward residents and members, it also provides services to any employees or vendors who work at the club, said Bill Enright, the clinic’s director of operations. “Our focus is on the members primarily and our founders of course, but we care for all the others because their job is to care for the members,” he said. “We care for them so they can get back to work quickly.”

    A spokeswoman for Jimmy John’s declined to comment.

    Liautaud is among a number of CEOs who have made news recently with public criticism of Obamacare. He has publicly attacked government levies before. He attracted attention in 2011 after telling local media in Champaign, Ill., that he was upset about a state tax hike. He said that he had already moved his family to Florida and hinted that he was planning to shift the company’s headquarters to a more pro-business state.

    Then in September 2012, Liautaud said he will move his company’s licensing division to Florida.

    According to Liautaud, Jimmy John’s franchise restaurants employ around 60,000 hourly workers.

    I’ve had JJ. Its ok. The big problem for them is they are coming into a town loaded with amazing delis that make out of this world sandwiches. Even the Blimpie is the best of the Blimpie’s. Our 10th best sandwich shop (whatever that is…matter of opinion) is better than the best sandwich shop in 99% of America.
    Good luck to them.

    CEO Jimmy John himself enjoys going on safaris to Africa and killing elephants and leopards and other beautiful creatures just for sport. DISGUSTING. Do not support this man.

      For sport? Sheesh….at least he could supply the restaurants. Think of the tag line possibilities. For starters…

      “The Cat’s in the Kettle at the Peking Moon, but we have a leopard in the larder.”

      Or something.
