Jimmy John’s sandwiches are decidedly simple -- meats sliced in-house, some toppings, that fresh bread, and probably a stupid amount of Hellmann’s mayo -- and that’s why people love eating them so much. With that said, there’s perhaps only one way to make them better without jeopardizing their beloved simplicity: make them even bigger. Now, in a move that will likely upend countless lunch plans, the sandwich chain is doing exactly that.
On Monday, Jimmy John’s announced the rollout of a major update to its menu, featuring a new sandwich size that measures a whopping 16 inches. The freaky big sandwich option is fittingly dubbed the GIANT and, well, it's literally like eating two of JJ's regular-sized original subs. In fact, the GIANT size is twice the length of the original subs and comes with twice the meat and toppings, according to a spokesperson. And no, this isn't just a single new sandwich, it's a new size option for any French bread sandwich on the menu. Well, damn.
