Breesus Visits His Jimmy John's Franchise, Tries to Break Company Record for Sandwiches Made

Look who was at the Jimmy John's franchise in Metairie this afternoon: none other than that location's owner, Saints quarterback Drew Brees. According to Breesus' Twitter, today was Jimmy John's customer appreciation day, which for the Metairie location meant $1 subs, an appearance by the owner and an attempt to break the fast food corporation's record for sandwiches made in a day. No word yet if they reached their goal of 2400 subs.

But, question: would it be news if any other fast food franchisee made an appearance at his or her restaurant? At least in New Orleans, probably not.
