Those freaky fast subs at Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwich Shop are going turbo now that a drive-thru opened today in West Bradenton.

The 1,336-square-foot restaurant, 5300 Manatee Ave. W, is the first Jimmy John's standalone shop and drive-thru in the Manatee-Sarasota area. It also has outdoor seating. The parcel used to be Patrick's Salon.

Owner and general manager Tom Vehema, who also runs the Cortez Road store with James Briles, shared with me in September his excitement for the new shop:
"A drive-thru adds a whole different dynamic to this franchise being freaky fast, making 30-second sandwiches," Vehema said. "Throwing our sandwiches into the mix, it's a whole different scene." 
The new shop will have 19 seats inside, a 16-seat patio, and offer delivery in a three- to five-minute area as well. Since the first Jimmy John's opened in 1983 in Charleston, Ill., the company has built more than 1,600 restaurants.

Contact Jimmy John's at 941-896-8811. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to midnight seven days a week and delivery begins at 10 a.m.


  1. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.

    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.

    I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (

    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.

    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.

    My Experience
    I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!
