Meet The Team

Get to know our Executive & Franchise Development Teams at Jack in the Box.

Our Mantra

We're Jack in the Box, but we've never stayed in the box.

From our menu items to our employees, to our franchisees, we've always popped out in innovative, fun, and unexpected ways. Unapologetically danced to the beat of our own music box. Being the curly fries in the world of regular fries, doing things others don't, serving things others won't, and challenging the status quo.


Executive Team

As a Jack in the Box franchisee, you’ll rely on our team for support as you grow your new business. You’ll work with us in the early stages as you get your franchise up and running by utilizing the resources and systems we've created.
