The first Jack in the Box restaurant, which offered only drive-thru service, opened in 1951.

Jack in the Box restaurants offer a selection of distinctive, innovative products targeted mainly at the adult fast-food consumer. The Company's MENU features a variety of hamburgers, salads, specialty sandwiches, tacos, drinks, smoothies, real ice cream shakes and side items. Qdoba restaurants use fresh, quality ingredients and traditional Mexican flavors to create innovative and unique flavor profiles. Throughout each day, guacamole is prepared on site using fresh Hass avocados, black and pinto beans are slow-simmered, shredded beef and pork are slow-roasted and adobo-marinated chicken and steak are flame-grilled.

In selling franchises, it competes with many other restaurant franchisors, some of whom have substantially greater financial resources. Each restaurant is subject to regulation by federal agencies, as well as licensing and regulation by state and local health, sanitation, safety, fire, zoning, building and other departments. It is also subject to federal and state laws regulating the offer and sale of franchises.
