You know what they say, “misery loves company.” I welcome you to my world of perplexing data, unanswered and likely unanswerable questions, architectural anomalies and a lack of definitive chronology for happenings in Culpeper. But then, if it were easy, it would not be so much fun. Despite the temporary frustrations, we know a great deal more than when we started.
Jason’s Deli stands for three simple concepts: PEOPLE, FOOD and CHOICE. PEOPLE We were founded in 1976 by Joe Tortorice, Jr. who believes in treating employees as family and backs it up by making remarkable investments in our people. We have a Leadership Institute that offers free classes in money matters, ethics, marriage, conflict resolution, emotional intelligence, and in the core values of our brand. Joe also started a program called The Fishing School in order to empower hourly employees to better themselves professionally by becoming managers and leaders. In addition, Jason’s has a non-profit foundation to help our employees when in crisis. FOOD Jason’s Deli loves fresh food and premium, more natural ingredients. We were the first major restaurant concept to ban artificial trans fats in the U.S. and also the first to eliminate high fructose corn syrup. What’s left? Exciting flavors, true freshness and real taste so you know that you’re getting nutrient filled goodness for your money. Come try our salad bar that's enhanced with organic choices or taste the world’s best Reuben!
