A Minnesota location of popular sandwich restaurant Jimmy John’s has come under fire after it was revealed that an employee refused to serve a customer because he was a police officer.
According to Fox 9, who interviewed Officer Marcus Limbeck, the employee was unrelenting in his notion that police officers exist just to give out tickets:
“Limbeck told his fellow officers in an e-mail the delivery driver yelled at him in the parking lot, ‘you coming down here to give us tickets now?’ inside, the same driver told him, ‘you’re not getting a sandwich here. You’ve given almost everybody here a ticket go get your sandwich someplace else.’”
The franchise operator, Dan Vansteenburg, took swift action and terminated the employee.
Vansteenburg spoke to Fox 9:
“The comments were so egregious we terminated the employee immediately,” he said.
“We have a lot of respect for law enforcement. We are a law abiding sandwich shop but we are on the road and we deliver sandwiches.”
