The Product Life Cycle
Jimmy John’s is in the market maturity stage. They have been
established since 1983 and now have over 1200 restaurants. Subway
and Blimpies introduced the sub shop market to customers, both
established in mid 1960s. Competition has been tough to the point
where subway offers five dollar deals and buy one get one free
before 10am. Blimpies has eliminated many of their shops. Jimmy
John’s is not a normal sub shop they differentiate themselves by
creating gourmet sandwiches with fresh bread made everyday along
with fresh cut meat everyday and delivering.
