Home in the Zone

Literally. The “Home in the Zone” contest allowed one superfan who lived outside of Jimmy John’s Sandwich Delivery zones to apply to win up to $250,000 to purchase a house inside the zone. Yes, we’d rather buy someone a house than deliver them a not-fresh sandwich.

Fake House :30
