CULLMAN – Last Monday Jim ‘N Nick's proudly celebrated their 30th birthday with a Day of Giving. The restaurant offered their “Pig on a Bun” special for $2.99, which was the price it was back in 1985 when they first opened. The Pig on a Bun special consists of a pork sandwich and one trimming. 

During their celebration, Jim ‘N Nick’s asked that their customers graciously give up to $30, or however much they could afford, to celebrate 30 years of giving back to the community.

Every dollar donated beyond the special $2.99 price from 1985 will go to the charity No Kid Hungry. It was their way of saying thank you for a great 30 years.

No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast. It also helps families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget.


Come join us tonight for dinner as we celebrate our 30th Birthday by giving back to No Kid Hungry. #JNNTurns30 #NoKidHungry

“Jim ‘N Nick’s has a big culture of giving,” said Beth Kibler, Jim ‘N Nick’s sales manager. “We don’t do traditional advertising. What we call our advertising budget is what we do in good wills for the community. When someone comes in and asks us for, say, cheese biscuits to donate, that’s called a good will. Anytime we give away food to an organization, that’s our advertising.” 

“We work with lots of local charities such as the CRMC Foundation and the H.O.P.E. organization,” she continued. “We as a company work with the Bell Center in Birmingham. They work with kids, I think, from 1 to 5 years old with developmental issues. We also work with magic moments, Mercedes Marathon – we’ve done their food for the past 10 years for free. The Bell Center sells the food as part of the race and all that money goes back to the Bell Center.”

Jim ‘N Nick’s is a compassionate partner for helping give back to the community. Their selflessness and desire to help others is a touching factor of the company. 

“Jim ‘N Nick’s opened in Cullman and immediately became a part of the community by giving back and supporting area charities,” said Maria Stanford, executive director of the Cullman Regional Medical Center Foundation.

“The Cullman Regional Medical Center Foundation is grateful to have such a great community partner. We are extremely thankful for the support and contributions to the Refresh-A-Room campaign. Owners Mary and Paul Liollio have rolled up their sleeves providing lunch to hospital staff thanking them for providing compassionate, quality care to area residents in the Cullman community.”

Jim ’N Nick’s doesn't believe in freezers or shortcuts – just slow-smoked Southern food done just the way it ought to be done.
