Jack in the Box


Jack in the Box finds the ‘perfect fit’ in Del Taco

The two California-based fast-food chains completed their merger this week. Here’s a look at some of the changes that could come to the taco chain.


Jack in the Box takes some big steps toward growth

The quick-service burger chain shrunk last quarter. But it has more commitments for new units from franchisees than at any time in its history.

The burger chain, which made a surprising deal for the Mexican concept, is not exactly ruling out another acquisition down the line.

The burger chain is paying $12.51 per share for the Mexican fast food chain to get more scale and drive more unit growth.

The Bottom Line: The deal signals a shifting market in the restaurant business. But it also demonstrates why executives should reconsider overreacting to activist investors.

With sales hurt from a lack of workers, the burger chain is turning to a variety of strategies to keep workers, including automated shake machines and mobile applications.

The burger chain estimates that closing hours and problems getting products hurt same-store sales by 4% last quarter.

The burger chain sued the cryptocurrency exchange FTX, saying that its character is a rip-off of its own Jack Box mascot.

Jack in the Box offers one more example why profitable and happy franchisees are vital for long-term growth, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

CEO Darin Harris joins this week’s episode of the RB podcast “A Deeper Dive” to talk about the chain’s improving franchise relations and its impact on growth.
