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

Store owner Branko Stropnik told the crowd, which included several county and chamber officials, he was excited about the new location.

“Jimmy John’s can’t wait to bring you all fresh gourmet sandwiches to Hinesville, GA, and yes we cater,” he said. “From the fresh prepped produce to the fresh baked bread, baked all day long, 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.”

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. The chamber is the source of the source for information and resources in this community,” she said.

Liberty County Board of Commissioners Chairman Donald Lovette also welcomed Jimmy John’s to Hinesville.

“We are a growing progressive community, and we are proud you are coming here. Thank you from the Liberty County Board of Commissioners,” he said.
