Jimmy John’s execs, I hope you’re ready to be flooded with entries for your “Home in the Zone” contest.

After all, there’s a housing crunch going on across the country, especially in desirable cities, and a prize of $250,000 to spend on a home could make plenty of folks salivate, whether or not they’re devotees of your salami and double cheese subs.

The chain is launching the sweepstakes today with a campaign from agency WorkInProgress that focuses on its policy of delivering food only within a limited, 5-minute radius of its approximately 2,800 stores.

According to the launch ad, some fans go to great lengths to get Jimmy John’s delivered, including setting up a faux residence, complete with white picket fence.
