Although the answer is quite obviously no, his response to the question he is frequently asked is usually a most emphatic yes.

Why? And what's the question?

I remember when I worked in the college library people would ask me what our hours were when I was standing directly beneath the sign showing our hours...

Is this a sort of "Here's your sign" thing? Is the question about food? About how he prepares it? About him personally? About the establishment?

The deli is "Jimmy John's" and his name is Jimmy. People often aske him if he is "the" Jimmy of Jimmy John's.

was the deli established in 1950? and he is only 30?Close enough!

********** SPOILER *************

Jimmy works at Jimmy John's Deli, which, as per the giant sign over Jimmy's head, was establised in 1983. Jimmy is 21, and doesn't look a day older. So unless Jimmy founded the deli a couple of years before he was born, it's quite obvious that he is not "Jimmy John." So when people (usually late night drunk customers) ask him, "Are you THE Jimmy John?" he usually responds with an emphatic, sarcastic, "Yes!"
