Sandwich shop franchise Jimmy John’s has opened another store in Tacoma, its 17th in the South Sound.

“This will be our fourth store in Tacoma and our team can’t wait to serve fresh, fast and tasty sandwiches to a new set of customers in the area,” said Heidi Jacquin, owner of the new location at 636 N. 1st St.

She says she plans to hire 20 employees to staff the new restaurant.
