Jack in the Box is committed to developing the Louisville market. We've identified five company-owned locations to be developed and we're looking for franchise partners to grow alongside us. We've currently designated 20+ trade areas for new franchise growth.
At Jack in the Box, we understand people have cravings throughout the day. Do you want breakfast for dinner? Do it. Are you craving our mouthwatering burgers and shakes at 8am? Who's stopping you? We offer every menu item all-day, every day. Your customers will thank you.
Since 1951, we've grown to be one of the nation's largest burger franchises with more than 2,100 restaurants in 21 states. We brought the drive-through to life by pioneering two-way intercom system still used QSR franchises today. In 2021, we relaunched our franchise program to allow new franchisees to join the Jack in the Box system. We're looking for new franchisees to grow our footprint and bring our craveable menu to new markets like yours across the country.
At Jack in the Box, we've seen the popularity of drive-throughs and mobile ordering skyrocket. Our new 1,350 sqft prototype was designed with that in mind. With dual drive-throughs for higher volume and a walk-up window for mobile orders, you'll be prepared for today's consumer!
Whether this is your first jump in franchising or we're an addition to your existing multi-unit restaurant portfolio, Jack in the Box has support tailored to your needs.

OPTION B: If you open the Restaurant on or before the required date in the development schedule, we will loan you $150,000 at 0% interest to be used solely for development costs associated with that restaurant. The loan will be repaid by crediting 100% of the royalty payments for that restaurant otherwise due until the loan is paid in full (i.e., payments will be made by crediting the appropriate portion of royalty payments toward the principal balance outstanding). If the particular restaurant is sold or permanently closed and the and the loan has not been fully repaid, the remaining principal balance is due in full.
If you close a restaurant and then open a replacement restaurant, it will not be eligible for these incentives. The Company may discontinue or modify this Development Incentive Program at any time.
