Westword's Jonathan Shikes, who keeps all you serious bread heads in the know with his sandwich chat each week, doesn't give a baguette's butt that Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches, which started its sandwich monopoly in Illinois in 1983 and now has sixteen locations throughout the metro area, is a big-ass chain.
And I'll bet you a pickle that when Colorado's 17th outpost of Jimmy John's opens later this month at 331 East Alameda Avenue, less than two miles from Westword headquarters, Shikes will be there before the doors swing open going all grabby for an Italian Night Club sammie.
