Jimmy John’s Requiring Sandwich Makers To Sign Non-Compete Clause

Sandwich chain Jimmy John’s has been requiring employees to sign a non-compete clause prohibiting them from making sandwiches at competing restaurants that sell “submarine, hero-type, deli-style, pita and/or wrapped or rolled sandwiches” in order to safeguard trade secrets. What do you think?

  • “You can’t be too careful when you’ve got a sandwich called ‘Totally Tuna.’”

  • “The sandwich biz is cutthroat. You can come out with a great new sub on Monday, and by the end of the week it’s already been reverse-engineered by your competitors.”

    Sam Patrick Seasonal Goods Stocker
  • “They left a pretty big loophole open for employees who want to make hoagies, grinders, or po’ boys.”
