Building a retail store can be a time-consuming and complex project. It is far more detailed than a store remodel. Consider the case of Jimmy John’s.
According to its Web site, at Jimmy John’s Sandwiches:
“We serve from-scratch food made with excellent ingredients. At Jimmy John’s, our food is simple; it’s clean, and it’s fresh! We use locally purchased produce, which is brought in fresh and hand sliced daily. Our tuna salad is made from scratch by hand. Our real provolone cheese, oven-roasted turkey, choice top round roast beef, hickory-smoked ham, or dry cured genoa salami and spicy capicola, are also brought in fresh and sliced by hand daily in every Jimmy John’s location. Our bread bakers bake our French bread all day, every day. We try and manage bread so that all French bread served is less than four hours old. If you like whole grain wheat bread, try the 9-grain sliced wheat bread – same deal, thick sliced and pretty close to perfect.”
“You care about where your food comes from, and we do too! We demand that of our suppliers. They go to great lengths to make it happen. Our stores are locally owned and operated by people who care. These Jimmy John’s owners create jobs and are giving partners in your community. Whether you visit one of our Jimmy John’s locations or order for delivery, our hand-crafted sandwiches are served to you by people who take the time to do it right. We’ll do almost anything you ask, so please do!”
Recently, Jimmy John’s built a new outlet in Lewisville, Texas. The construction took about 21 months, ending in September 2016. Take a look at the following time-lapse video to see the full project unfold.
