Jack in the Box Returns to Chicago Market with Plans for Eight New Stores

San Diego-based fast-food chain Jack in the Box is making a comeback in the Chicago market after more than four decades. The company announced its plans to open eight company-operated stores in the area, with the first location set to open in 2025.

CEO Darin Harris expressed excitement about the expansion, stating that it will include various types of restaurants such as traditional freestanding locations, drive-thru end-caps, building conversions, and dark kitchens. The expansion also offers franchise opportunities for entrepreneurs interested in joining the Jack in the Box brand.

With over 2,200 restaurants in 22 states and an additional 600 eateries under the Del Taco nameplate, Jack in the Box has been expanding into new markets across the United States and Mexico. The company has identified more than 125 sites for expansion in the Chicago area, marking a significant step in its growth strategy.

In addition to Jack in the Box’s expansion news, Taco Bell is introducing a unique project in San Diego. The fast-food chain is launching an “early retirement” community where guests can experience senior-like leisure activities for a few days. The community, called The Cantinas, aims to provide a fun and inclusive environment for all generations to enjoy.

Meanwhile, Alliant International University is launching an online course for students interested in pursuing a master of science in nursing. The program is designed to address the impending leadership gap in healthcare as many nurse executives approach retirement age.

In the world of investments, General Atlantic has made a $5 million investment in Athletic Brewing Co, a San Diego non-alcoholic beer maker. The funding will support the company’s growth plans, including the purchase of a new brewing facility and expansion into global markets.

Lastly, Term Labs, a San Diego-based startup, has secured a $5.5 million investment round led by VC firm Electric Capital. The company is focused on providing scalable, transparent fixed-rate lending on blockchains, aiming to bring stability and predictability to on-chain lending.

Overall, these developments in the San Diego business scene showcase the diverse and innovative growth strategies of companies in the region. Stay tuned for more updates on these exciting ventures.
