Jimmy John's Opens for Business Tuesday in Eureka

VIDEO and Photo Gallery: All the inspections now are done and the new Jimmy John's team can begin their freaky fast service.

A trial run for family, friends and supporters of the new Jimmy John's gourmet sandwich shop in Eureka was conducted Saturday. Franchisee owners Kevin and Dan Morrell greeted a steady stream of eager sandwich connoisseurs.

Kevin said the shop's hours will be 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., although they may consider longer hours during peak Six Flags St. Louis times. Dan said they also may consider extending the drive-through service time, depending on customers' requests.

The new sandwich shop has hired 37 employees.

All the bread is baked fresh at the shop, and cannot be more than four hours old, according to Jimmy John's corporate standards, Dan said.

He said Jimmy John's expectations are that customers receive their order within 15 to 20 minutes of placing it—hence the "freaky fast" reputation. That corporate promise typically dictates the surrounding delivery time of a shop, usually set at 5 minutes. The delivery radius of the new Eureka shop was established on Monday.
