Food delivery is a way of life that has expanded beyond take out containers of fried rice and greasy orders of pizza. Now you can get just about anything delivered — milk teas packed with spheres of tapioca, decadent cartons of frozen treats, and sandwiches piled high with cold cuts and squares of cheese.
But what if you live just away from the delivery range of your favorite restaurants?
Jimmy John’s is attempting to modify that. After all, Jimmy Johns is strict about its delivery policies; it is going to only deliver sandwiches to places within 5 minutes of their stores to be sure the food maintains its trustworthiness of being “freaky fresh and freaky fast.”
To combat this bump within the road for the customers not in the small delivery radius of Jimmy John’s, the beloved sandwich chain is hosting a “Home inside the Zone” contest, in which the grand prize is $250,000 towards buying a home within a Jimmy John’s delivery bubble.
“At Jimmy Johns, were committed to Freaky Fast and Freaky Fresh, Jimmy John’s Chief Marketing Officer John Shea said in a press release. While that means we cant deliver sandwiches to our own customers who live outside our Delivery Zones, we are able to deliver our customers to our own sandwiches.
For sandwich obsessives/home-owners who already live in the gilded walls of the Jimmy John’s delivery zone — and for that reason don’t qualify for the sweepstakes — Jimmy John’s offers prizes to five winners to have free sandwiches (and delivery) for an entire year.
The contest begins on August 12 and run until October 4. To get in, Jimmy John’s enthusiasts will have to explain — in 250 words or less — why they want to live within a sandwich delivery zone.
