Coleman and her husband, Randy, signed a lease to occupy the space in March, after zeroing in on Chelsea for a Jimmy John’s franchise location.
“I think that there’s strong brand awareness in the greater Ann Arbor area,” Coleman said. “Plus, a lot of folks that work in Ann Arbor live in Chelsea. I think the community is growing and there’s room for our product.”
Coleman plans to hire 20 to 25 employees. She is hosting two hiring events to invite people to apply for a position. The first event is Thursday, Aug. 18 from 5-8 p.m. at the Key Bank in Chelsea. The second event is at the Jimmy John’s location on Sunday, Aug. 21 from 4-7 p.m.
There are six Jimmy John’s locations in Ann Arbor and one in Ypsilanti, according to the company’s website.
The first Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwich Shop was founded in 1983 in Illinois. Since its inception, the company has grown to more than 1,200 locations in 39 states.
