MAHOMET — Mid-September is the target date for a new Jimmy John’s sandwich shop to open in Mahomet at the corner of Lombard and Main streets, east across the street from Sangamon on Main.

Owners are Austin Apgar and Patrick Wampler, and Wampler said ideal conditions might mean an earlier opening for the restaurant, but the middle of September is the expected timing.

“Mahomet is a community on the rise, and we were eager to be a part of it!” Wampler said via email this week.

He said he and Apgar have had good results with Jimmy John’s locations in Tuscola and Rantoul, for example, and they believe Mahomet will be a good fit as well.
