Jimmy John’s: Gourmet Sandwiches Made With Top Quality Products

Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches in Pooler, GA is owned by Timothy Sutton. Tim relocated from Michigan to the Lowcountry to open his own location for Jimmy John’s. He had spent several months searching for the perfect location before settling on Pooler, GA. Pooler has become the perfect fit for Tim. “I’m a northerner, and as a northerner, was raised to be efficient, protect myself and not to worry about the pleasantries as they simply get in the way. Pooler and the Lowcountry communities have changed my behavior for the better,” explains Tim. “I have learned and am proud to say Yes Ma’am and Yes Sir!”
Tim moved back to Michigan after marrying his beautiful wife, Becky, but is still an active part of the Pooler community. He wanted to express his appreciation of the store’s General Manager, Alyssa Brinson. The ability to travel between Michigan and Pooler is thanks to the dedication and hard work of Alyssa, who manages the daily operations of their Pooler location.
Alyssa graduated from Effingham County High School in 2017 and started working for Tim at Jimmy John’s as a member of the Inshop Crew, responsible for greeting customers and making top quality sandwiches. Alyssa then became a driver for the team at the age of 18 and quickly worked her way up to General Manager. Since taking over the role of General Manager, she has produced corporate audit scores high enough to allow them to open more Jimmy John’s stores. “She is producing higher numbers and scores than when I was the General Manager,” says Tim with great pride and enthusiasm. “I have so much confidence in her that I have offered her Ownership as the Managing Partner.”
Tim explained what he loves most about Jimmy John’s is that those who work hard go far with the company. “If you give 100%, you will be rewarded for your effort, regardless of where you are from, how you got here, race, wealth, education, religion,” explains Tim. “I believe my job as an Owner is to provide opportunity for ANYBODY that wants it.” He went on to explain that Jimmy John’s has top quality products, delicious gourmet sandwiches, and, of course is known for their speed and consistency, but what makes them truly unique is their hard work and dedication to quality. “We bust our butts. Always. Period,” says Tim.
Tim, Alyssa, and the entire Jimmy John’s Pooler Team believe in giving back to the Pooler community. Tim, having served in the US Marine Corps himself, offers a 10% discount to all active and retired military personnel at his Jimmy John’s location as his way of saying thank you for serving. In addition, they also offer a 10% discount to all first responders and a 5% discount to all teachers. “My wife, who is a teacher, asked me if I offer discounts to teachers. So, we now offer a discount to our hard-working teachers,” explains Tim. Last year they gave away over $17,000.00 in free food, discounts, and promotion material to the Pooler community and surrounding areas and are tracking to do the same in 2018. “We are a huge supporter of the Pooler Recreation Department through donations to the sports teams,” says Tim. Jimmy John’s of Pooler was a major sponsor of Pooler’s Fall Festival this year where they handed out a large supply of sandwich samples. “We feel honored to be a part of such an amazing community,” says Tim.
