Jack in the Box Plans to Expand to Lafayette

If you like Jack in the Box fast food restaurant and live in Acadiana, you’re in luck because they plan to open locations in Lafayette.

Based in San Diego, the company has served the Baton Rouge market since 2000 from 16 locations in the area, including in Gonzales and Walker. But now the company wants to consider expanding into the Lafayette and New Orleans markets.

Last year, Jack in the Box CEO Darin Harris said the company was able to grow from just over 2,200 restaurants to 6,000 by expanding into new and existing markets.


As part of this expansion plan, the company has begun reaching out to existing franchisees as well as new operators to continue growing in markets such as Baton Rouge. They would also like to jump into areas like New Orleans and Lafayette, said Van Ingram, vice president of franchise recruitment.

“We want to go to the places where people are most likely to go to a Jack in the Box,” he told The Acadiana Advocate.

However, according to Ingram, it will be a while before you see any of their restaurants in Acadiana. He said it could take anywhere from 15 to 24 months for zoning, permitting and construction.

Overall, Jack in the Box estimates it can open more than 1,5000 restaurants across America. This includes about 50 locations in the greater New Orleans area and another 10 to 14 in Acadiana, and another eight in Baton Rouge. Each restaurant will employ around 35 to 55 people.
