7) Drew Brees, Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches

Jimmy John's really should be available everywhere. A company that offers "Free Smells" in their window has a good sense of humor and an excellent marketing strategy in our book. There's nothing better than pumping sandwich smells outside to lure customers in! Drew Brees, the Super Bowl MVP Saints quarterback, is a big enough fan of the chain to buy a franchise. "I missed Jimmy John’s so much from my time in the Midwest, and I thought that it was a great fit for what we were doing in New Orleans," Brees told Entrepreneur. "The culinary arts is a big thing down here; there are great restaurants and great chefs; and so much of the culture is surrounded by food and dining. It’s kind of neat to be part of that somewhat by owning my Jimmy John’s franchises." Brees isn’t the only sports star to be a big fan of Jimmy John’s; New York Yankees pitcher David Robertson told us that he eats it every time he’s on the road.
