Jimmy John's Is Opening in South Braintree Square
An Illinois-based chain of gourmet sandwich shops continues its expansion into the Greater Boston area, with a new one coming to a town center in the suburbs.
A recent check on the space indicates that Jimmy John's is opening in South Braintree Square, taking over the Washington Street space where a deli and sandwich shop called That's Italian used to be. An earlier article in the Braintree Forum confirms this, mentioning at the time of publication (February 24) that it was planning to open early this summer. Once it does open, the new Jimmy John's will join four existing locations in Boston (D Street in Southie, Park Drive in the Audubon Circle area, Valenti Way by North Station, and Western Avenue in Allston-Brighton). Another one is being planned for Waltham as well, though it is not known when that shop might open.
[September 2 update: A check on the place indicates that the new Jimmy John's in South Braintree Square is now open.]
Jimmy John's first opened in Charleston, IL in 1983 and now has more than 2,000 locations across the country.
The address for this new sandwich shop in Waltham is: Jimmy John's, 911 Washington Street, Braintree, MA, 02184. The website for the chain can be found at https://www.jimmyjohns.com/
