Jack in the Box's (JACK) Drive-Thru Only Location Debuts in UT

12:48 pm ET September 19, 2023 (Zacks) Print

Jack in the Box Inc. JACK opened its very first drive-thru only restaurant in Salt Lake City, UT, marking its second opening in the city’s metro area in summer 2023.

The new Ogden-based restaurant features Jack in the Box’s CRAVED (cultural, relevant, authentic, visible, easy and distinctive) image which includes a new color package, signage, and imagery. The location comprises a drive-thru and walk-up window for ordering and pickup, along with a dedicated parking for mobile and third-party delivery orders.

After JACK’s record-breaking full-first-month sales on its debut in the Salt Lake City, which is also its first new market entry in more than a decade, this new opening was considered. The drive-thru location also aligns with the company’s new market expansion initiative.
