Jimmy John’s Opens First Drive-Thru Only Site

Jimmy John’s opened its first-ever drive-thru only site. Located in Bartow, Fla., this unit takes what the sandwich chain describes as a “digital-forward” approach that promotes mobile order pickup.

This location features a dual-sided drive-thru, with one lane dedicated for online and mobile orders. The design also includes carryout lockers, which allow guests who order ahead to get their food via a contactless experience.

In addition, this design builds on a brand refresh Jimmy John’s unveiled last year. Developed with ChangeUp, the design features an updated logo that features the chain’s initials and illustrations across the unit’s exterior.
