Jimmy John’s could be another late-night option for TCU students.
Jimmy John’s is a gourmet sandwich shop that offers “Freaky Fast” delivery.
The University Drive location’s manager said they want to extend their hours from midnight to 3 a.m. on game days and special occasions. Jimmy John’s current hours are Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to midnight.
Jimmy John’s manager David Caballero said that the hours will stay the same for now.
“On game days and special occasions we might stay open a little later, but it has not yet been approved by Jimmy John’s corporate,” Caballero said. “But we are trying hard to make sure that happens.”
Caballero says he thinks they could cure the late night hunger quickly.
“Late at night, people just want a quick bite and we are able to take care of that really fast,” Caballero said.
Students said they would utilize late night hours if Jimmy John’s offered them.
“Jimmy John’s would be a great addition to the limited late-night delivery options around campus,” senior finance and real estate major Lee Larcher said. “There’s always a high demand for food at 3 a.m. on the weekends.”
The current late night options around campus include Toppers Pizza, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop and Salsa Limon.
Senior social work major Maddie Hermes said that she has a lot of friends that enjoy Salsa Limon late at night, and thinks that Jimmy John’s would be a great addition.
“Salsa Limon and some pizza places have late night options which is great, but many students prefer Jimmy John’s,” Hermes said. “They would really benefit from staying open late especially from students looking for a little healthier late night snack instead of pizza or tacos.”
