Jimmy John’s in Westlake will be celebrating its third anniversary on Nov. 29, 2014.

That was freaky fast! Just like Jimmy John’s.

“We are doing great with the Westlake business community, and we want more businesses to know about us – especially with the holiday season coming up,” says Gary Wagner, owner of the Westlake Jimmy John’s.

Just where is the Westlake Jimmy John’s, anyway? It’s located at 29998 Detroit Rd. in West Bay Plaza.

This will take you to a place where an irreverent attitude, low price, great food and delivery with a smile always remain the same.

Wagner is a North Ridgeville resident who opened the first Jimmy John’s on Cleveland’s west side several years ago in North Olmsted.

“Yes, we are a little hidden from the people who live in the area, in a shopping center behind KeyBank in West Bay Plaza,” said Wagner of the Westlake Jimmy John’s. But they are busy with 25 employees and 8-10 delivery drivers at lunch time.

“Our goal is to make every delivery in under 15 minutes,” said Tom Bolda, General Manager. “We do try to get all of our deliveries out in under four minutes.”

Westlake Jimmy John’s serves an active customer base in Westlake, Bay Village, and eastern Avon and Avon Lake. Residents of developments like Settler’s Reserve, Savannah and The Estates are used to seeing Jimmy John’s delivery vehicles in the neighborhood.

So are many businesses along Clemens Road and even Crocker Park.

“We get deliveries to Crocker Park all the time,” said Bolda. With the holidays coming, it is good for stores and businesses to know that Jimmy John’s can keep your staff happy and fueled up during busy holiday times, even Black Friday.

Jimmy John’s has been the go-to caterer for top retailers in the area who want to keep their Black Friday and product-launch employees stoked with good food. For easy to carry, easy to use catering, Jimmy John’s offers Box Lunches – and to mix and match your favorite subs, the store offers 15 and 30 piece Party Platters too.

“We have had stores stagger deliveries with us throughout the day during long-hour days like Black Friday,” said Bolda. “That is our specialty – last minute catering.”

“Jimmy John’s definition of fresh is worlds apart from everyone else’s,” says the company website. Wagner knows it’s true. “Bread is baked fresh here all day. We can’t keep it for more than four hours so we work hard to not run out. Our veggies are prepared every morning, tomatoes and onions sliced fresh, and our meats are all sliced here, not pre-portioned or pre-packaged.”

Jimmy John’s Westlake: Where the employees are the ordinary people doing extraordinary things. They want to be the best. They don’t mind doing whatever it takes to get the job done, and their hustle is part of how they live their daily lives.
