It was back in March 2023 we brought you the news that California based fast food chain Jack In The Box had plans to return to Florida for the first time in over 30 years, with a new restaurant in Orlando included in expansion plans.


Then in February this year, the company gave an update including a new franchisee for Orlando, Ed Zausch who planned to open not 1, but 10 new Orlando area restaurants!


Now, as we await the first of the restaurants to open, Jack In The Box has announced that another 10 restaurants are set to open in Orlando thanks to another franchise joining the company.

“Expanding into Florida, one of the nation's largest and fastest-growing states, aligns perfectly with our strategic plan for the Southeast,” said Tim Linderman, chief development officer. “We're thrilled to bring our iconic brand to Tallahassee, our next new market, and further develop our presence in Orlando.”


The details for the franchise expansion plans include future development commitments for five locations in Tallahassee and an additional ten locations in Orlando. Specific locations for each restaurant have not been identified.


Florida's dynamic population growth and business-friendly environment were cited as key factors driving the expansion. With over 400 new franchise commitments secured in the last three years, nearly 10% of which are slated for Florida, the company emphasizes its commitment to the Sunshine State.


"We currently operate a globally recognized family dining concept, but we see the business opportunity in the quick-service segment,” said Dan Soma, Orlando-based Jack in the Box franchisee. “We’ve been looking for a brand partner that’s well known nationally and that provides us with an opportunity for scale. We believe we’ve found this with Jack in the Box, and we are excited about this new partnership and opportunity to serve the greater Orlando community."
