Whenever I go to any eating establishment I focus all my attention on the food and service BUT sometimes its not just about the food. To me its about the moral value of the owner, I went to the Jimmy John''s at the McHenry complex in Baltimore, MD. I knew I was going to order a hero or sub. I was kind of turned off by the greeting of the order taker, she acted kinda of mechanical, cold demeanor, so it left a bad taste in my mouth. Now this organization is a multi million dollar company and with every sub, you always need the crunch. They go hand in hand but my lunch didn't include in the price a bag of chips? Come on, how cheap is that. When it comes to subs, I like everything laid out so that each bite doesn't push the cold cuts one way which with Jimmy John's it does. The subway roll wasn't fresh, kinda stale and this was at peak lunch hour. The flavor was bland, no zing to it. Nothing special, and looking into the preparation area, was dirty with scraps of food on the floor with a soggy towel.
It just says to me that quality control is not followed based on Standard Operating Procedure, totally disgusting right before I start eating. I lost my appetite.
Hey Jimmy Liautaud, instead of spending your money killing wild endangered species like the elephant, use the money to get your business in order. Yeah, you have every right to spend your money on whatever you like but your business choice of making food for customers does impact your customers view of you as the CEO and they don't like what you've done killing wild animals that we're losing to poachers on a daily basis. The argument that the animal will be sold and eaten is only an excuse to justify your killing.
On a scale of 1-5 and 5 being the best, I rate Jimmy John's a "0"
