Ann Arbor area Jimmy John's sandwich shops to offer $1 sandwiches on Thursday
Lines at the local Jimmy John’s sandwich shops will likely be wrapped around the block Thursday as the company offers $1 sandwiches on its Ann Arbor-area customer appreciation day.
The event is from 11 to 3 p.m. and sandwiches numbered 1 through 6 on the menu will be $1, with a limit of one sandwich per customer.
Mary Trader of Dig Communications said the company hosts the event in its major markets across the country as a way to excite customers.
She said the lines outside the shops are typically long on $1 sandwich days, usually wrapping around the block.
There are 6 Jimmy John’s locations in Ann Arbor and 1 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 over 1,200 locations in 39 states.
