Sneak peek at IYB: Another Jimmy John's on the way

Here's a sneak peek at an item from It's Your Business. Read this and more Sunday.

A second Jimmy John’s will open in Danville this fall.

Seth Hobbs, owner and manager of the Jimmy John’s at 3120 N. Vermilion St., said plans are in the works for a second, bigger store at 306 W. Fairchild St.

That location would be next door to Papa John’s on the southeast corner of Fairchild and Gilbert streets.

The layout and look of the new Jimmy John’s will be similar to the existing store, but will be able to seat more customers — about 50, Hobbs said.

“It will extend our delivery zone big-time,” he added.

Hobbs doesn’t know the exact delivery area for the new location, but he expects it to serve all medical facilities in the area and most of downtown.

Renovations should begin soon, with the goal of being open in early November.

Tentative hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

The new store is expected to employ about 35. There won’t be a drive-up, but in the spring, an outdoor seating area may be added.

However, a drive-up will be considered at the store on North Vermilion Street, he added.
