Jimmy John’s announced it would start testing new ways for customers to pay when dining at the chain.

The fast-growing 2,700-unit sandwich chain has partnered with Verifone and Worldpay, Inc. to bring secure and flexible payment options to the chain with the introduction of Verifone’s Engage P400 system. Processing over 40 billion transactions annually worldwide, the Worldpay POS systems are already utilized throughout the chain. However, the new addition of Verifone device will allow Jimmy John’s to bring more convenient and flexible payment options for its customers.

“At Jimmy John’s, we want the fastest and most secure payment experience for our customers,” John Shea, chief marketing officer at Jimmy John’s, said in a statement. “With cutting-edge technology from Worldpay and Verifone, we will be even better equipped to provide fast and frictionless service to our customers in the payment method of their choice.”

Aligning with Jimmy John’s “freaky fast” customer experience, the new contactless payment system, allows secure tap and go payments from mobile wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay enhancing the consumer experience for highly-secure and fast transactions.

“Our Worldpay Integrated Payments platform has delivered a customized, market leading solution that aligns to Jimmy John’s, ‘freaky fast’ customer experience needs,” said Matt Taylor, EVP head of global integrated payments & SMB eCommerce at Worldpay, in a statement. “Partnering with Verifone to implement their next generation of contactless EMV series devices adds tremendous value to our software developer community and cherished clients like Jimmy John’s. We’re thrilled to be able to deliver innovative product capabilities in today’s rapidly evolving integrated payments ecosystem that give our merchants an important advantage in processing capabilities, tailored to their specific needs.”

This latest innovation comes on the heels of another Jimmy John’s announcement that came earlier this fall. For the first time in 20 years, the chain added a new 9-Grain Wheat bread to its menu.
