Jimmy John’s is coming to Streator

Sandwich shop may open in next 2 or 3 months

It’s official, a Jimmy John’s is headed to Streator in 2022.

Jimmy John’s signage was recently installed into the windows of the Streator Commons storefront at the northeast corner of Marilla Park Road and Bloomington Street. The restaurant will go into the storefront to the north of the AT&T store, in what was formerly Cash Store.

Managers at the Ottawa Jimmy John’s, who are opening the Streator store, said the new Streator location should be open in the next two to three months, “at the beginning of the year.”

Jimmy John’s is a sandwich franchise, which has locations across the nation and stores in Ottawa, Peru, Utica, Pontiac and Spring Valley locally.

Streator had a Jimmy John’s located in Kroger Plaza close several years ago.
