Jack in the Box operates and franchises 2,218 restaurants, primarily in the western and southern parts of the U.S., including one in Guam, according to its financial filings.
The review comes as the San Diego, California-based chain’s same-store sales increased 10.3% during its 2021 fiscal year ended in October.
Jack in the Box has been gearing up to combat the ongoing struggles in the restaurant industry. Last month, menu price inflation reached a 40-year high as the price of quick-service meals jumped 8%, according to QSR magazine. To counteract labor shortages, Jack in the Box recently revealed plans to test robots at its fries stations and implement automated drink machines and self-cleaning milkshake machines to reduce some labor requirements.
David & Goliath, on the chain’s roster for eight years, was named agency of record in 2015 following its creation of a regional Super Bowl spot that effectively moved the business from Secret Weapon Marketing, the agency that created the restaurant chain’s iconic Jack Box character. In June, David & Goliath launched a new campaign starring artist Jason Derulo to promote Jack in the Box’s Roost Fries.
The shop was also recently hired as creative agency of record for another food brand, Jollibee. In September the agency launched the chicken chain’s campaign starring a fictitious lawyer named Chris P. Poultry.
