Property for Jimmy John's in Rock Falls could be transferred Friday

ROCK FALLS – Plans are close to being finalized for a new Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches restaurant in Rock Falls.

Owner Li Arellano hopes to close on the property Friday morning. If all goes according to plan, construction work can begin in about a month, Arellano said. He would not say where the property is.

Arellano, part owner of the Dixon Jimmy John's, had tried to open a store in Sterling before focusing his efforts on Rock Falls. Arellano had tried to reach an agreement with Sterling for more than 6 months, but the plans he had for the former Auto Store, at 2402 E. Lincolnway, fell through, largely over design standards in Sterling's city code.

Arellano still is working through some city code details with Rock Falls, but expects no problems, he said.

Arellano said he would be the sole owner of the Rock Falls store.
