When Jimmy John Liautaud was only 18, his dad gave him the choice to join the Army or open a business. The rambunctious teenager decided he wanted to open a hot dog stand. His dad loaned him 25,000, but the hot dog stand cost more than the loan so Jimmy expanded his horizons and discovered that he could open a sandwich shop. He baked bread in his mom's kitchen, bought meats from Dominick's and created 6 sandwiches he liked. His family voted on 4: the Pepe, the Larrissa, S and Vito Geneveso.
