Jimmy John's opens in Xcel Energy's 790 Buchanan Building

Jimmy John’s has opened its third Amarillo location at 790 S. Buchanan St., Suite 110, on the ground floor of Xcel Energy’s new regional headquarters building.

The sandwich shop occupies 1,400 square feet of ground floor space, taking up a portion of the 5,000 square feet Xcel Energy has set aside for retail businesses on the southeast corner of the block bounded by Southeast Eighth Avenue and South Buchanan.

Jimmy John’s owners, Charles D’Amico and Erin Ludington, chose the location for its proximity to not only Xcel Energy employees, but also tenants in nearby office buildings. Plans for a new multipurpose event center across the street also played into the choice of the Eighth and Buchanan site.

“We expect our business will only get stronger as more development occurs, along the street,” D’Amico said. “Buchanan Street is being transformed, and it will be a major attraction for the city once all the development is completed.”

“Whether you visit one of our Jimmy John's locations or order for delivery, our hand-crafted sandwiches are served to you by people who take the time to do it right,” D’Amico said.

The Xcel Energy building, known as 790 Buchanan, houses close to 300 Xcel Energy employees. The building is owned by a real estate investment trust and leased to Xcel Energy for 20 years, with Xcel Energy providing management services for the building.

The new headquarters building consists of three floors of parking with a four-story office tower on top of the southeast corner of the structure. Through an arrangement with the city of Amarillo, the first level of parking is reserved for city employees and fleet vehicles.

Justin Kite, retail specialist with Coldwell Banker Commercial – First Equity, Realtors in Amarillo, is the leasing agent for the ground floor retail space in the 790 Buchanan Building. He said another 3,000 square feet of retail space is still available to lease.
