James is our President and CEO and runs the daily operations of the company. Pretty crazy given he started as a night manager-in-training at one of our company owned stores on the University of Illinois campus. James took a leap of faith to leave his home in New Zealand at 23 years old to come to the United States to work for Jimmy and make sandwiches! James is now married to Molly who worked at Jimmy John’s while she was a student at U of I. They are proud parents of two amazing boys with another child on the way.
