Jimmy John’s® is giving its fans a taste of Italy, without the need for a passport, with the introduction of the New Caprese Salami Pesto sandwich. For a limited time, the brand known for its Freaky Fast!® service is showing consumers that “mozz is boss” with its twist on the classic Italian sandwich.

Caprese Salami Pesto Sandwich

Just in time for Spring, this bold new sandwich is piled high with time-honored Italian ingredients, like slow-roasted tomatoes, all-natural Genoa salami, basil pesto, balsamic glaze, olive oil, oregano, onion, mayonnaise and then topped with award-winning fresh mozzarella. One bite will take you away to Italy and make you say, “that’s amore”!

“We set out to develop a sandwich that was full of delicious Italian flavors,” said Dustin Hilinski, Director of Culinary Innovation at Jimmy John’s. “But we also wanted to make it unique to Jimmy John’s, which starts with hand-sliced salami – because we’ve always hand-sliced our meats as that makes all the difference – and then layer the other ingredients atop our iconic, freshly baked bread to create the most satisfying sandwich.”

The New Caprese Salami Pesto sandwich is perfect for any meal but won’t be on the menu for long. These sandwiches can be found in person, online, or on the app through Freaky Fast Rewards®. Learn more about Jimmy John’s at or stop by your local Jimmy John’s and try one today!
