Jimmy John’s to open second location in Salisbury

SALISBURY — A second Jimmy John’s is coming to Salisbury.

The property at 401 E. Innes St. was demolished to make way for the restaurant on Aug. 9.

Jim Freiberger is president of The Original Carver Group, Inc., which is the company that owns the Jimmy John’s franchise in Salisbury. The property at 401 E. Innes St. is owned by JEM Farms, LLC. Freiberger said JEM Farms will become an associate partner with his company when the restaurant is established.

Freiberger said the Jimmy John’s at 121 Brenner Ave. could not serve all of downtown and maintain its reputation for “freaky fast” delivery. So in order to better service the downtown area, the company decided to open up a second location.

Right now, there are 19 planned parking spaces for the sandwich shop and it will also have a drive-thru. There will be one entrance on South Long Street and one exit onto East Innes, according to a site plan sent by Preston Mitchell, Planning and Development Services manager.

The company is still working with the city on the site plan and other paperwork, but Freiberger said they hope to start building in October. The target opening date for the restaurant is the beginning of 2017.
