Jack pops up Monday

STILLWATER, Okla. — Menu variety makes Jack in the Box different from other fast-food chains, area supervisor Matt Williams said.

Jack in the Box will become Stillwater’s newest dining option when it opens at 9 a.m. Monday at 508 E. Hall of Fame Avenue.

It will be Jack in the Box’s 14th restaurant in Oklahoma, Williams said. Jack in the Box Inc. operates and franchises more than 2,200 restaurants in 19 states.

“We have a broader menu than most fast-food places,” Williams said. “We have fajita pitas, rice bowls with egg rolls. We have burgers. We have chicken sandwiches. We have really nice salads that are upscale salads. We have tacos. It’s a different menu variety than you are going to see in a lot of different places.”

The Stillwater Jack in the Box will employ approximately 120 people, restaurant manager Courtney Parks said.

The restaurant’s dining room and drive through will be open 24 hours a day/seven days a week, including holidays.

“We never close. We are always here,” Parks said.

“Our core audience is 18- to 40-year olds,” Williams said. “That’s what the company caters to which is perfect for Stillwater.”

Jack in the Box, Inc. was founded in California in 1951. The company expanded outside of California in 1960. It operated and franchised stores in Oklahoma in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but the company contracted its restaurant base and Oklahoma restaurants closed. Jack in the Box re-entered the Oklahoma market in 2009, Williams said.

Jack in the Box, Inc., also owns and franchises Qdoba Mexican Grill. Qdoba has more than 600 restaurants in 42 states. There is a Qdoba Mexican Grill in Stillwater at 139 S. Knoblock Ave.
