Jimmy John’s sandwich franchise going into Lincoln Heights shop this March

If going by the former Curves spa at Lincoln Heights made you guilty about not working out, worry no more: that spot, at 2931 E. 29th, will soon become a Jimmy John's sandwich franchise.

The new shop moves into the Curves loction near Trader Joe's. Curves relocated to the other end of the shopping center, near Baskin Robbins ice cream shop.

Operating the new Jimmy John's are Ric and Kathy Rocca of Spokane. The couple already operate two other Jimmy John's shops, in downtown and near Gonzaga University.

They expect the Lincoln Heights shop to open in mid-March. They're leasing 1,500 square feet from property owner Vandervert Developments. 

Ric Rocca said the shop will be open seven days a week, employing about 15 workers. It will deliver to area customers who fall, generally, within a 20 minute radius of the store.

The head office of the Jimmy John's company is in Champagne, Ill.
