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