The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce held a groundbreaking ceremony on June 8 for Jimmy John’s at 110 West General Screven Way in Hinesville.

The sandwich shop, which emphasized speed in service and delivery in its advertising , is building on one of the out-lots of Oglethorpe Square shopping center.

Chamber/CVB CEO Leah Poole welcomed those in attendance and introduced Branko Stropnik, the store owner. Chamber Vice Chairman Kathy Villafane welcomed Stropnik and Jimmy John’s, not only to the community but to the Chamber as a member.

“You will be a great asset to the community and if you need anything please reach out to the Chamber,”  Villafane said. “The Chamber is the source of the source for information and resources in this community.” 

Liberty County Commission Chairman Donald Lovette welcomed Jimmy John’s and said, “We are a growing, progressive community, and we are proud you are coming here. Thank you from the Liberty County Board of Commissioners.”

“Jimmy John’s can’t wait to bring you all fresh gourmet sandwiches to Hinesville, GA, and yes we cater.  From the fresh prepped produce to the fresh baked bread, baked all day long,” Stropnik said. “We bring the best products together to make the best sandwich of your choice.  Our minimally processed meats have no artificial colors, nitrites, or nitrates added and no MSG or hormones. You care about where your food comes from, and we do too! So, get ready, freaky fast is coming your way!”
