A third Jimmy John’s … I think

My plan was to craft a story for Saturday outlining the timeline for a third Jimmy John’s at 517 N. Hillside, near Wesley Medical Center.

However, after being stonewalled in Chicago, all I can tell you is that I THINK Bushwood Investments plans to open the third version of its popular sub shop. My colleague Denise Neil, knower of all things restaurant, tells me an April open date is what’s being bandied about.

Why so vague? A call to Bushwood’s corporate office Friday afternoon for details elicited a terse “We don’t give out that information,” followed by an admonition to submit all questions in writing.

I guess free publicity isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be.
