Jack In the Box History

Jack in the Box is a successful U.S. based fast food restaurant chain that was founded in 1951 by Robert Peterson. It was established in San Diego, California where it’s also currently headquartered. The company has around 2,200 locations operating in the western region of the United States, and a few other select large cities on the eastern side. Some of the food items they have on offer include hamburgers, cheeseburger sandwiches, egg rolls and tacos among others. The company also owns a small sister company known as Qdoba Mexica Grill.

Peterson opened the first location in San Diego along the main boulevard leading into the city. He only had a typical intercom system, drive-thru window space and tiny restaurant where he served hamburgers to passing drivers for just 18 cents.

In 1968, the restaurant was acquired by Ralston Purina Co. which expanded operations into other parts of America such as Phoenix, Arizona. Three years later, the company had expanded into Texas, where they opened locations in the Houston and Dallas areas. By 1979, they were operating more than 1,000 restaurants.

Over the years, the company has been on a mission to expand their reach and can now be found in 47 states across America, as well as Canada and the District of Columbia. Many consider them the industry’s leader in fast-casual dining. Each of their restaurants showcase food that celebrates a passion for fine ingredients, innovative menus, handcrafted cooking and welcoming service. They also have a habit of introducing new items in rotation every 3 to 4 months, including items such as the Philly cheesesteak, deli trio, and zesty turkey.

The company also lists seasonal food items like Oreo mint, eggnog and pumpkin pie shakes which are available during Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays. Moreover, in certain locations, there are local delicacies that form part of the main menu, such as the Paniolo Breakfast of Hawaii.

  1. Obviously, a hamburger with bun is going to have gluten. It would be nice to note what sandwiches would be gluten free if the bun was left off. We can adjust if we know just what the offending items sre. Thanks

  2. If anything that goes into the fryer isn’t gluten free, then nothing going into the fryer is gluten free. How are the fries on the gluten free menu but the tacos are not? Looks like nothing fried at Jack is gluten free unless you have a dedicated fryer for the french fries. I echo Lisa in saying, I sure would love to be able to eat the tacos!

    • You and me both! I live less than two minutes from a Jack in the Box, but never go because there really isn’t much I can eat there. The salads are expensive compared to something like the tacos.

  3. Please, please, please, please put some type of burger in some type of bread that is gluten-free on your menu. You would get twice as many customers to come in. My son loves your sweet and spicy burger but he can’t eat it because the bread is not gluten-free. He has terrible reactions to gluten. Taco Bell has there Doritos taco that is gluten-free but he gets tired of eating those. Please, please, please, put something on your menu with the burger that is gluten-free.

  4. Who would have thought the teriyaki chicken bowl had wheat in it! Found out the hard way…..and the curly fries! I think it would be easier for me to just slit my wrists!

    • Hey Juniper,
      You’re correct, we’ve now added a note about in regards to the fries. I can confirm they don’t have a dedicated fryer, as I’ve asked them in person. Thanks for the comment!
