Bio
In 1951, Robert O. Peterson opened a drive-thru burger restaurant with a large jack-in-the-box clown on the roof in San Diego. The company began expanding outside of California in 1960, and began franchising in 1982. Still based in San Diego, Jack in the Box's menu now features a wide variety in addition to hamburgers, including chicken sandwiches, breakfast, tacos, salads, shakes and sides. In 2003, Jack in the Box acquired fast-casual franchise Qdoba Mexican Grill.
