The story of Wildcat Investments begins in December of 1999. Gregg Majewski, then serving as COO/CFO of Jimmy John’s Enterprises, Inc., joined forces with Russ Majewski and Herman Schneider. The three partners arranged a deal to open and operate seven Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwich shops in Columbus, Ohio. And Wildcat Investments, LLC was on its way.
With its skilled and dedicated staff of more than 500, Wildcat currently operates 13 Jimmy John’s locations in Columbus, Athens, Oxford and Cincinnati in Ohio;; and Auburn, Alabama. Four new Jimmy John’s are currently under construction.
The company will see additional growth with the opening of an exciting new restaurant concept – the lively, friends-and-family-friendly Jerseys Pizza and Grill. The eatery – the first in an expected chain – is open in Hoffman Estates, Illinois and welcomed its first visitors in July 2005. They also are opened a quick serve gourmet burger concept called Patty Burger in 2006 in downtown Chicago. These two concepts are both in development to franchise in the near future.
