Sandwich joint opening in Emory Village
Champaign, Illinois-based Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches is coming to Emory Village. The sub shop will occupy the former Chevron gas station on North Decatur Road.
The approximately 2,000 square foot building is being completely renovated to suit the needs of the restaurant. (Local wine merchant Sherlock's had last year announced plans to open in the space but later abandoned them.)
According to Emory Village Alliance, the gas station renovation will include the installation of new windows and other exterior and interior improvements including a kitchen and seating for about 20 inside, and patio seating for others outside. When work is complete the site will reportedly have 13 parking spaces plus bike racks on the east and west side of the building. Cars will enter at the North Decatur Road entrance and exit on Oxford Road.
