My Vision


Jimmy John's - Carnell Moss

"I don’t have too many people I can look up to that I think, 'okay this is a role model, this is how I should be'. I try not to idolize people on TV because I know, just like social media, they make you believe what they want you to believe. I guess my role model is the vision I see of myself; the man I see me becoming.”

The Culture


Jimmy John's - Darren Hall

“I like the culture. The subs are good, don’t get me wrong, but I really like the culture. It’s a little sarcastic…like ‘free smells’, who says that?”

- Jimmy John’s Customer, Darren, Champaign, IL #9039

My Happiest Moment


Jimmy John's - Allen Duong"When I watched my wife walk down the aisle I had the biggest grin, I was so happy. Our wedding was supposed to start at 2 o’clock and she was half an hour late because she had to get her makeup perfect. I finally saw her car pull up, so we all got into position. She walked in with her Dad and our service dog Shadow…I literally could not stop smiling. I don’t know if anything will ever top that moment."

-Allen Duong, General Manager, Irving, TX #1260

Lessons and Blessings


Jimmy John's - Jaylan Bailey

"I lost my grandfather when I was a sophomore in high school. He was a big part of my life. When I lost him, I kind of shut down for a little bit. It was one of the hardest things I had gone through, but it made me a stronger person. Every time I get down or want to turn away from the good things I’m doing, I just think, this is something he’d want me to do, you know? One thing I always say is ‘lessons and blessings’. There’s no wins and losses in life, just lessons and blessings, and everything happens for a reason. It’s up to you what you take out of every situation you’re put through in life.”

- Jaylan Bailey, Guerilla Marketer, Chicago, IL

Dance Like Nobody's Watching

Role Models


JImmy John's Employee

 "I was 8 years old when my Dad was shot 5 times, he is paralyzed on the right side of his body. My Mom is such a strong, determined woman. She powers through everything and does it with a smile on her face. So, we grew up watching her help my Dad because he basically had to re-learn everything. That was about 17 years ago and now he walks, talks, and drives…he’s going to Florida by himself this month. They’re my biggest role models. They’ve made me an independent person who knows I’ll be okay no matter where I go. I’m moving to Washington this month and graduating in April!”

- Kelsey Montgomery, Inshop, Champaign, IL #9039

Learn from your struggles


Alyssa Cornett"There are things I could have done differently with the Navy or with college, but it’s not really anything that I can change now. So you just have to learn from your struggles, move past them, and then do better next time. I’ve learned that you’ll want to listen to what everyone else has to say about everything, but it all comes down to you, your thoughts, and what you care about. Just remember to put yourself first sometimes."
