The First Champaign Store - Jimmy's third sandwich shop opened in Champaign, IL, home of the U of I in 1987.

Jimmy wanted to open a hot dog stand, but found that it cost more than his dad's loan.

Jimmy opens his 100th store in Mt. Pleasant, MI in February, 2001.

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.
