THIS Is Why You Should Never Eat At Jimmy John’s Again!

jimmy johns FI

Many people are claiming they’ll never eat at Jimmy John’s restaurant again after photos surfaced that show the company’s owner posing with animals killed on various trophy hunting expeditions.

Full disclosure, what you’re about to see might be disturbing.

Business Insider reports that Jimmy John Liataud has visited Africa several times to take part in big game hunting. Animals he’s hunted include elephants, zebras, leopards and rhinos.

Here, you can see Liataud posing with what Real Farmacy says is a ‘gravely endangered’ black rhino. The license Mr. Liataud purchased to kill the beast reportedly cost $350,000.

All those sandwich sales really add up!

In this image, you can see Liataud posing with an elephant.

"Two thumbs up for capitalism!"

Between 2011 and 2014 alone, poachers killed a staggering 100,000 elephants. According to National Geographic, the beasts’ popularity among game hunters has brought them to the brink of extinction. Experts estimate that elephants could be completely extinct in Africa by 2020.

First off, it’s his money! His business and his prerogative! He is paying through the nose to shoot one of these animals. He’s not the only one who does. At least he’s doing it legally. I don’t condone killing for sport but he’s not poaching. If you are going to hate the guy, make sure you have all the facts straight. I agree he’s a bit of a butthead, but I try not to judge.

    And when their are no animals left to kill, then what? They are endangered, some close to extinction. No money justifies this.

      Jennifers argument is valid and unless your a vegetarian please do not condone a hunter. Most people that hunt elsewhere feed the meat to starving villages but of course this article won’t state that. The money goes to them, which they desperately need. If you don’t hunt and eat your meat from a store then you are the cruel one. Take a look at how and other companys treat those poor animals. I would rather the animal gotten have a full and good life before being served up, rather than abused.

        It’s not about hunting. It’s about hunting endangered species. Plenty of people hunt animals that are not endangered, no one has issue with that. Get your shit together. This guy is garbage.

          The hunting of these animals is no different that the hunting on the game ranches here in the USA, they are raised to be hunted, it is a business and people pay big bucks to do it. Those big game animals are raised for that purpose in Africa by big game ranches/.farms, what ever you what to call them, for the sole purpose of hunting and also to conserve the wild species by adding to them when possible. Big game hunting in Africa is a conservation of animals and habitat business. And the ones that are shot are done with conservation in mind.!!…..

    Stop projecting your barbaric fetishes. Not only does she point out she’s seemingly on the same side as you in regard to killing endangered species, but she did it in a respectful manner that highlights there’s another side to this kind of debate. If you’re unwilling to acknowledge the other side’s point of view you are being small minded, and your post does nothing to constructively progress any kind of point of view. At best, all that can be discerned from your comment is that those opposed to killing endangered species have deranged thoughts about what they would like to do with their buddies.

      $350,000 to hunt a rhino? Since we’re justifying killing with money, how much to hunt a teenage girl?

He didn’t poach from what the article states about Jimmy John spending money to hunt the animals. Of course the article states all he does is kill them which should be questioned. Many hunters feed starving villages with the animals they hunt. All of the money goes to the area in which they hunt in to help them survive. So much more needs to be stated in here, more research. As for someone eating some where else, unless your a vegetarian your a hypocrite. What do you think? Your meat grows on trees? Have you ever looked into how animals are kept and treated on a meat farm? It is despicable!

You’re a fucking idiot who doesn’t want the truth, and wants to defend jerks who kill animals for fun.
    You’re the brainless fool who needs to do more “research” instead of believing the garbage that right wing and “sport hunting” sites tell you.
    “Meat farm”? Jesus fucking christ you have no idea about how animals are raised for food.
    Learn about CAFOs and learn about the horrible waste these “hunters” create.

      Interestingly enough there’s a lot of terrible propaganda surrounding this issue. He pays money to the community that homes the animal, ideally the community spends the money in order to provide a better habitat, medical treatment, and general experience for the animals living there. Whether or not they do that is up to them, but $350,000 could likely result in 10-20 endangered animals living and replacing the one that died.

      Whether or not you believe that the money goes to treat the wildlife is up to you, as there’s no way of knowing without seeing the people who received it’s receipts. Regardless, the hunter gave the money to them, he likely doesn’t care what the money goes to but it is up to the people he pays to tend to the endangered species. You might think he is terrible due to the fact he is hunting for sport but his sport could potentially provide the money necessary to bring these animals back to a safe level of population. This article grossly represents the writers agenda and nothing more.

        It isn’t hard to figure out. They get $350,000 for protecting the wildlife. If they DON’T protect the animals … they won’t get any more money next year. I am sure it doesn’t all go to the village … but everyone is motivated to protect them … except for the poachers and environmentalists.

      Well you certainly know how to scream and call people names, but your grasp of facts is sketchy. the meat does get donated to thenlocals, they do use it and need it, the licenses do help with wildlife management anti poaching efforts, which do more than safari tourism many areas without legal hunting experience more poaching and smaller more decimated animal populations becuase the locals see the wildlife as competition for resources instead of important to thier economy becuase of safari hunting. Facts supporting those positions are strong. you have changed no minds by insulting him every sentence.

          You are telling these people that what they have read is untrue. Have you been over there to see it first hand? No, you read crap posted online by animal rights activists spouting lies and hate against legal hunters. Your “research” is flawed and full of lies. Now go away until you actually know the truth

NO one said they were altruistic they are using thier money to enjoy thier lives, they could do lots of things with thier money none of which would end up in a village in africa so this is it take it or leave it. as for the sociopaths comment it’s hyperbolic nonsense. Lastly I love the fact that Lilly white leftists want to decide what’s right and good for generally impoverished 3rd world countries and once you got your way and somehow got rid of westerners buying hunts in africa and they were a lot more impoverished people just like you would go happily on your way secure in the knowledge you virtue signaled how awsome you are.

IT’S the same in the United states, 99 percent of the ones used to manage and maintain wildlife and the programs around them come from revenues from hunting and permits. AND left wing causes and non profits do virtually nothing compared with that. and thier is no way around that fact for you.

          You like shooting stuff and killing animals. I hunt and fish because I like the way wild game and fish tastes, and because I know where my food comes from. Going to other countries to kill animals that are endangered or at risk is selfish and stupid. Grow the fuck up.

          Sure, you have every “right” to enjoy killing for the sake of killing. It’s legal, I suppose, though immoral.
          And no, animals do not “need to be culled”. They’re disappearing due to people “enjoying” the “sport” of killing them. If you’re not going to eat what you kill, then it’s immoral and wrong. One should only kill to eat the animal themselves, otherwise it’s sick behavior.
          No exaggerations, you just won’t admit that you enjoy seeing animals die for your own selfish pleasure. I don’t. I also take absolutely no pleasure at all in fetishizing guns, shooting them or knowing that I killed a creature.

do you know if these are planned cullings? sick or dangerous animals which need to be culled for the sake of enlarging the population? because a lot of the planned and paid for hunts target animals which are killed mercifully for protection of people or the animal population. the article didnt say. does anyone know the details?

Don’t see a problem with this it’s his hard earned money. Those animals are selected by the govt and local wildlife officer for a reason. Plus none of the animals go to waste. Liberals wouldn’t know that because they research what happens to the animals after they are humanely taken. More jimmy johns please

    Well said cmac. No one bothers to research and learn that these are usually rogue and dangerous animals or selective thinning of a herd to make it stronger. But the libs don’t care about that they would much rather destroy human life than animal. I’m surprised they haven’t threatened to kill JJ. Or they probably have but that wouldn’t be journalism that would merely be justice for the all mighty animal kingdom, animal lives are more important than human life to these extremist

      there are only approx 5,000 black rhino’s left in the world (as of a year ago, 2015) and no white rhino’s left.. they have gone extinct, thanks to poaching and selective hunts that the governments allowed… how much more selective thinning of the herds to help make them stronger do you think endangered species can endure, hmm? Just since the 70s and 80s, the world has seen the loss of a number of animals that people thought were fun to kill for sport.. Baiji River Dolphins, Javan Tiger, Bubal Hartebeest, Pyrenean Ibex, Caribbean Monk Seal.. to name a few.. extinct..!! they survived until people encroaching on habitat and killing for sport decided for entire species that they should no longer exist.. tell us again about liberals and what they’ve wrought on the the world you live in…

        So what your saying is we should let the animals inbreed with each other causing birth defects and diseases in the herd that will eventually kill them all of anyways. Actually do the research about these hunts and why they are allowed then you can talk about the hunting of these. I understand there is mammals/animals that are extinct from poaching but that is a totally different discussion. I don’t agree with poaching but a legal kill is a legal kill.

Sorry David, you are off target on this one.

The store owners are FRANCHISE owners. Mom and Pops that put up $50,000-100,000 for that store. They have NOTHING to do with the owners actions. He already got his money from them.

Boycotting the stores hurts REAL people who have done none of this to which you object. They probably don’t agree with them.

Yet like most employees of companies do you agree with your company owner completely? Yet you still work there.

Aren’t journalist supposed to cover all sides of the story?

      Absolutely nothing that says a reporter should cover all sides of a story? Really? Well, try ETHICS. You are not FAIRLY “reporting the facts” unless you report ALL the pertinent facts, or at least as close to that ideal as is reasonably possible. Like, for instance, the fact that the store owner you boycott may have no culpability in this behavior whatsoever. Personally, I abhor the slaughter of wildlife as much as anyone, and have no problem with heat being brought to bear on this jerk, but people – those franchisees – deserve the benefit of fair, ethical and just reporting as well.

        First of all, this isn’t journalism. It’s a blog post. Second, even if it WERE journalism, it’s clearly opinion/editorial, in which case the journalist is under no ethical obligation, whatsoever, to mention anything about possible economic ramifications of a boycott for franchise owners. Thirdly, even if it weren’t op/ed or a blog post, if it WERE an actual news piece, there still wouldn’t be any need to talk about that, since a news piece wouldn’t be CALLING for a boycott in the first place. You clearly don’t understand the difference between being ‘fair,’ which is a valid journalistic standard, and being ‘balanced,’ which is nonsense and something that needs to disappear from journalism anyway, since it really is an impossibility.

        There’s also this to consider: As a franchisee, one pays a good sum to the parent company. A boycott of Jimmy John’s, while it may not hurt the parent company immediately, surely would eventually, since as the business fails, fewer and fewer people buy franchises. Not only that, but most franchisees pay a yearly fee or a percentage basis to the parent company. Those people have chosen to buy a franchise from a monster–they reap what they sow.

      You mean the way “journalists” are covering the election? If the so called journalists covered this election the way they should be, Hillary Clinton would be polling in the 10-20% range. There is no longer any such thing as a journalist, they are called political hacks now!

      As far as hunting goes, ban deer hunting in the USA for 2 seasons. The results would be starved and disease riddled deer lying dead everywhere, vegetation stripped clean, which would lead to all other plant eating animal starving and dying. Predator populations would explode, and attacks on humans would elevate.

      This is a perfect example of the all-around ignorance of the Left in this country, and explains why every idea they come up with fails. Liberals base their every action off of emotions instead of well thought out rationale, like an adult(Conservative) would. Example, do I necessarily like the thought of people hunting strictly for sport? No, but I also don’t get pissed off about it. I did some quick research and this is what I found. Africa is an arid continent, that usually relies on seasonal rains for any greenery. During the rainy season, food is aplenty, but, during the 10-11 month dry season food and water becomes very scarce. As a result hundreds of elephants die of starvation each year because, the habitat can’t support the surplus elephants. So you see, if they aren’t harvested, nature will harvest them. I will assure you a bullet is less cruel than starving to death!

      Moral of this story is, liberals should try living in the world of reality and truths, then maybe the ideas they come up with would actually succeed instead of failing as assuredly as the sun coming up every morning!

      Harley, you don’t understand franchising at all. Mom and Pop can’t afford to throw away their $30,000 up front franchising fee and the agreement would probably require them to vacate their store if the turned back their franchise. Also, they probably couldn’t open a new store within a certain distance. Independent shops also are at a disadvantage against chains.

      You’re being ridiculous. He will still hunt, and the money the African government gets for those hunts goes into funding for fighting poaching, and conservation of the lands and animals. The herds have to be culled, and the government opens up a certain amount of tags for these hunts. They are told exactly what animals to shoot, and are supervised. The government has to pay people to cull these animals if they are not getting money through Safari hunts, and that money comes out of the conservation budgets. These animals are taken for many reasons, and not just left laying in the dirt after the hunt. Not buying a sub at a sub shop will not change that.

          So …. let’s see. Where can the poor African countries bring in millions of dollars to protect the animal ranges from the poachers? I got it. Why don’t you donate $350,000 to them to protect the other rhinos and elephants?

          But it is a lot easier to condemn others than spend your own money to protect the animals isn’t it. As long as you feel good about yourself and you donate a few dollars to an environmental group.

          Will you donate money to hire the guards on the ranges to fight off the poachers (because the poachers jump from country to country and have guns too)? Nope …. that means the endangered animals now will become extinct.

          What ticks me off is that the aspect of “harvesting” wildlife DOES protect the wildlife… while most of the environmental agendas actually lead to innocent animals being brutally slaughtered …. but of course it has more with “feeling good” about yourself than actually protecting the animals.

          Sorry, I’m for protecting the animals rather than making you feel good about yourself.

          Well, I am not a hunter. But I know of a few that have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars to go and cull some animals, many which were sick, aggressive, or negatively affect the rest of it’s community. That money paid for licenses/permission on protected animals preserves, the same preserves which PROTECT the animals by providing security to combat indiscriminate poaching, is actually used to help sustain the populations. Hunting is not the same as poaching. Why do you think Game and Fish Depts. charge money to hunt and fish? It’s because that money is used to help retain animal populations in a regulatory body. Poachers do not pay, they do not contribute, they do not assist in the sustaining of animal populations. That is done by donors, and hunters.

          By the way, I live in an area that has had to frequently cull animals in the past to combat transmission of disease (often by over populating), removing problem animals etc. When the DNR does it, they destroy the animals and any resources are wasted. It’s a net negative cash flow into the protection of the animals. When hunters are called in to do it, it’s cash positive for future preservation efforts. And they occasionally are allowed to keep the animal for processing.

We live in Missouri and the taxes we pay on firearms and ammunition alone go a long way in supporting these wild herds. What have these liberal tree-huggers done to support or mange these herds except take digital pictures and write blogs?

        This all sounds good, however, the reason(s) these idiots are able to obtain licenses to kill these magnificent creatures, who are NEAR EXTINCTION, does not matter. Are so you naive as to believe the money the African government receives goes back into “funding poaching and conservation of the lands and animals”? We’re not talking about Coyotes or Deer or Wolves, that are culled. We are talking about big, beautiful creatures that we (man) is depleting to the point of non-existence from this planet. Think about it, herds were here long before man and were never “culled”. Nature takes care of itself, but MAN in his infinite wisdom, believes they know better than nature!

          Africa is a continent comprised of 54 separate countries each with their own government and laws pertaining to game management. There is no money going to “the African government”. You have no clue what you’re talking about. I’ve seen starving animals due to over population which I’m sure was common when herds ran free before man..using your example. That’s how nature takes care of itself

You did need to be told that there are multiple countries involved, since they rarely work together in the management of their wildlife herd managements. I am not a hunter or fisherman, but I do understand Herd Management techniques and allowing ‘Nature’ to take it’s course is rarely the right way to go for the betterment of the managed species.

          Africa is a continent not a country, Africa is comprised of many countries, Kenya, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, South Africa, Zimbabwe, etc. all with individual governments within the continent of Africa. The license monies got to the government of the country the hunter hunts in not to the continent of Africa. And yes culling is good for the animals due to limited wild spaces in the countries, they cannot let the animals population exceed a certain limit which will cause death to them by starvation and starvation is more horrendous than the hunt as most hunters try for clean kills so the animals don’t suffer unnecessarily. Therefore the hunts, and the country profits from the fees and most of the animal meat is given to the population for food, so therefore a win/win situation. Maintaining the animal population and feeding people in need. There is a similar deal here in the US where hunters donate their harvest to the needy so there is no waste…..

Do yourself a favor and look at a map… you will see many lines which we call borders inside those lines specific organizations called governments make laws which govern the population living inside the borders of a country. If you are so fired up to stop hunting then maby you ought to get in touch with the government in the country in which he shot the wild game. Don’t come here and preach to those of us who had nothing to do with this hunt, that hunting is bad for nature….. Last I checked Humanity is a part of nature and as such our actions are by definition natural. Sorry you are upset these are facts.

          So, you would rather let an animal go through the painful process of being starved rather than culling (harvesting) it for the consumption of humans? That is not management for betterment, because those animals that are allowed to starve to death become open to contracting disease that CAN be spread to healthy animals. Gain some knowledge on proper animal management, you are hurting too many others with your HSUS drivel.

I don’t have a problem with this either. These countries sell these REALLY expensive permits to kill endangered animals and then use that money to stop poachers. So 1 legal kill may stop 20 illegal kills. So long as it’s done the right way and he’s paying the tab…….hunt away.

The reason elephants have BEEN on the endangered species list isn’t because of “big game” hunters, it’s because of African poachers that hunt them to sell the ivory.

Personally I dont agree with hunting, not even a tiny bit, however I am not the one doing it nor do I have any control over the one who is.

These are business that are owned by other people, franchise owners, people like me and you, who are not millionaires who are the ones first and foremost that will be directly effected by the sudden lack of business. Local people who work for them may find them self’s without jobs, family’s will directly suffer. Trash News like this does nothing but shed light on how selfish and judgmental we have become.

Well I won’t be eating JJ anymore… but not because I give a flying f*ck what the guy is doing with $350k and an animal. I just don’t particularly care for their food. See that is a valid reason to not eat there. Not because you want to punish whatever his name is through his franchisees and make it harder to put food on their tables and pay their bills. Meanwhile, the guy you’re mad about? Yeah, he’s unaffected.

Not much different than Papa Johns owner or those of Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr. or Chick Filet.
And BTW, ivory poachers are the danger to elephants, not hunters. The fees hunters pay to shoot elephants, typically ones causing crop damage or a danger to people, fund the anti poaching patrols.

You know why you should not eat there? They refuse to put any ingredients on the side. Asked for my lettuce and tomato on the side so I could heat it up at home and the refused. Said it was Jimmie’s rule. Fuck Jimmie and his bullshit sandwich ways…

Ya know, if you went to Africa and took one of those hunting safari’s you are doing two things:

1. You are supporting an African City/Country’s economy with THOUSANDS of dollars…

2. You are helping them manage their wildlife population…just like we do here in the U.S.

Your lack of knowledge when it comes to real conservation of of wildlife is sickening….bleeding hearts like you are why many of our cities’ urban/forest buffers are over populated with deer and other small game…roadkill and sick animal populations are the results…

    never heard of a distinct animal. But these animals are bred in captivity and released in a fenced off area for one sole purpose. To be hunted. Why do you think it costs so much? its not cheap to raise an elephant. And there are not too many companies that do it. Yes, elephants are endangered, but not nthese ones that are bred on private property, and kept on private property. When was the last time you went to the zoo, and bitched about the elephant behind the wall. Its the EXACT same thing.

It’s not just about the money that hunting brings to communities, The Governments Issue licenses to control populations. He legally hunted.. Our Us Gov issues licences for all the controlled animals here on our continent also. Bear, elk, dear, moose, .. If we had any over population of Elephants here The US would hunt them to.. I am not condoning the mans actions, I don’t know him or his intentions but I do not complain about (Legal) hunting. Also, the article makes it seem as if the animals are thrown in the trash and wasted.. I am sure the local people use almost all of the animals in some way. I understand if you are against hunting. but get the facts and there are always two sides of a story.

All of Jimmy John’s are franchises for the most part. The key phrase in this article was “he purchased a license” meaning it was a LEGAL kill, that animal was born into captivity and raised for the sole purpose for rich white dudes to hunt it down and kill it. You CAN’T SHOOT A WILD RHINO OR ELEPHANT in all the African continent WITH A PERMIT, no matter how much you pay you can’t do it LEGALLY. You can poach all you want with the risk of being in prison in some African country. You can, however, purchase a license to do what Mr. Jimmy John did and kill aa animal bread for the purpose of killing it. That’s why it cost him $350k there are only a handful of breeders who do this and it takes years and thousands of dollars to ready the animal for a hunt. I’m sorry but JJ makes a damn good sandwhich, better then subway, and he is doing his hobbies legally!

Yeaaa this is complete bullshit. $350k for one animal? That gives that country enough money to breed and raise over 20 more. It’s a shame that that’s the only way they can get people to donate towards conservation, but it’s the real world. Hunters aren’t the reason these animals are endangered. They don’t even come close to the top of the list… The destruction of their habitats and POACHERS, on the other hand, are. I don’t see people like you bitching about native tribes killing endangered animals, though they don’t have to give anything back in the way of conservation. If you look at it objectively, does the reason really matter?

You do realize that revenue generated from these permits, are used to fund conservation efforts. They increase policing of poachers, provide resources for otherwise stangnat economies in Africa. Im not a hunter myself, but get off your high horse and do some research before you start telling other people how to live their lives. Non-competes are not uncommon documents, but please specify how else employees are mistreated.

    Dude, these are beauteous creatures that are being murdered for fun. It’s most definitely not okay in the least bit and you are missing the bigger picture, (being that Jimmy John is not the only one poaching). That’s like if a restaurant owner hunted your family and funded the disgusting activity with the restaurant money it earned from customers who had no idea, until your kind became extinct eventually. The focus isn’t that these creatures are “far from extinct”, it’s that it is wrong in every aspect and Jimmy John uses the money from the customers he serves without them knowing. It’s bullshit. He’s a crooked ass wipe.

      Once that money leaves the customer’s hand it is the property of the owner of the franchise’s and it is his’ or her’s to do with as they please. You can’t got to Wal-Mart and tell them how to spend their profits or for that matter any other business, because it is their’s to do with as they please. You have no say so over how another spends their money and no one has the say so on how you spend your’s. According to what I gather you’re a disgruntled employee and don’t like to follow your employer’s rules. All business have rules and regulations that must be followed, they are there for a reason and not for you to question. You don’t like the rules and regulations then quit and check out the rules and regulations before you hire into a new workplace, it’s that simple.!! The man has the right to hunt, he does it legally and is not a poacher. I think you best read up on the subject before spewing your venom and hate about hunting. The monies goes towards conservation and habitat renewal and breeding of quality animals. The ones most often hunted are culls; the old, the weak, the sick or over populated habitat animals. When they cull those it makes for a better environment for the surviving animals. You take a “peta” sympathizer’s unknowledgeable rantings to bad mouth your ex-employer and that is unconscionable in my book. Yes, you are just a disgruntled ex-employee out for revenge any way you can get it.!!…..

Although the horrible poaching is disgusting, everyone is basically missing the fact that the company seriously treats its employees like garbage. I worked there for 7+ years and it was the worst job I ever had. Regardless if the stores are franchised, they still have the same strict and ridiculous rules for every store. Some of the rules were so insignificantly blasphemous, too! (i.e. you can only wear white or black socks, not above the ankle, shoes have to be white or black on bottom, no tattoos, only a certain colour khaki pants/shorts is acceptable, I mean, really? What customer refuses to eat at a place because their socks are too high?? COME ON!

Not to mention the asinine rules regarding employee hours. I get not wanting the employees to go over 40 hours a week, but if they have a five hour shift and only three hours until they hit the maximum number of hours per week, we were told to clock out and work for free, or find someone to cover a pointless two hour shift. Even when it was fully staffed! It’s the worst place to work, I’m telling you. Get out while you can or stay far away from this place.

    While you are correct, it isn’t the only reason why Jimmy John sucks. He’s not a good person and has been sued several times, even dually-sued because he does not care about his employees, or animals.

    After I found out he was a poacher many years ago, it didn’t surprise me of another stupidly strict rule he created that made employees take the gauged ear jewelry out and put a super adhesive bandaid over your ears. It painfully took off SKIN and was completely unnecessary. It just goes to show Jimmy John doesn’t give a shit about anyone but himself.

that’s all you got? he legally hunts animals? Give me a fin break. Did you know that al the meat, if you don’t want to take it home (I bet he does) goes to the local village and feeds many people for a while? As well as most of the money goes to said village as well. These African hunting packages are very very very common and a huge number of people do it every year. Then you show a bear, and a ram…….tens of thousands of people, if not more, hunt these animals in the US every year. I shot a bear this year, am I evil? I pout in for a ram tag here and there as well. This article was obviously wrote up by some freak PETA looser. You make me sick

As a franchisee he is required to purchase his food from the corporate office so yes by not eating at JJ you will be telling that fat, ugly, deplorable of a human being that it is not ok to kill endangered animals. It is not ok to kill animals period. Want to hunt? Come to my backyard and kill a few squirrels or rabbits. Not an animal that continually decreases in numbers.

      I wouldn’t worry your pretty little head about it. My comment and my decision to stop eating there won’t hurt their business. But it will and it has taught my children to stand up for what you believe in. Their food is not that great in the first place and this just makes it so much easier to say no. Besides they don’t need my money my community does so I will continue to eat at the mom and pop places, and to support the homeless and the foster care program which I am a foster and adoptive parent over Jimmy John’s. Also I do hunt, and eat read meat. But I hunt animals that are meant to be hunted and I do not do it for sport and I use the whole animal and don’t discard any of it.
