1717 Pennsylvania Ave, NW
Hey, I realize this probably sounds a silly question, nevertheless, want to pose it to PoPVille. Given the near monopoly that Subway has over the DC sandwich scene and Potbelly’s ongoing expansion, has this deterred Jimmy John’s (my favorite fast food sandwich place) from opening stores in D.C. proper? What is ironic is that JJ’s has a very visible advertising presence on Metro buses and at Metro bus stops……but the closest JJ’s is in Alexandria. Where’s the love for Jimmy John’s?!”
Back in May ’11 we learned that DC would be getting it’s first Jimmy John’s at 14th and L St, NW. In email to get an update the folks at Jimmy John’s tell me the one at 14th and L St, NW “is scheduled to open in October”. But there is even more good news for JJ fans – they are also opening a shop at 1717 Pennsylvania Ave, NW. And this one is scheduled to open at the end of August/early September.
