Employees at a Sioux Falls Jimmy John's are giving new meaning to the phrase, "freaky fast."
This week, they earned top honors for making sandwiches faster than anyone else in the country.
You're likely to get a sandwich made faster at this Jimmy John's store on the corner of 57th and Louise than any other location in the country.
It's confirmed with the gold medals placed around the necks of General Manager Jesse Plecker, Anna Foster, and Kyle Femright.
"To finally get the chance and then go win it, very surreal," Plecker said.
The trio beat out 1,600 teams from coast to coast in a fierce sandwich making speed competition in Las Vegas this week.
"I tried not to get my hopes up. I didn't want to be disappointed if it didn't work out. I just tried to stay calm and make sandwiches as fast as I can, I guess," Femright said.
The group started practicing for the challenge in October, focusing on both accuracy and speed.
"All the other teams, they worked on accuracy and getting everything right but we have both so that's what got us the first place," Foster said.
The team made 10 sandwiches in just three minutes, averaging one sandwich every 30 seconds.
"So surreal, we were all just shaking," Plecker said.
"It was nuts, one of the best feelings I've ever had," Femright said.
And looking ahead, the group plans to defend the title in the next competition in two years.
At the last competition, a team from a different Sioux Falls store took second place.
