One Sandwich Blitz location is near a public assistance housing complex, which is populated by a large segment of displaced hurricane victims, many of whom are of various ethnic minority groups. While sales are still good, this location has been the target of two armed robberies over the past year. Some employees have voiced their concern over working at this particular location. Local community leaders have urged Jack and Jenny to keep this location open and told them about a local neighborhood improvement initiative designed to make this neighborhood safer and more attractive.
