Corporate History

The company has a fun story: In 1982, Jimmy John Liautaud graduated second to last in his high school. His dad gave Jimmy John a choice: Start a business or join the military. He started a hotdog stand then switched to sandwiches. His first location was a converted garage. The restaurant was a success in part because he gave free samples and delivered sandwiches to nearby Eastern Illinois University.
