There are times when cooking is not an option, and waiting for a prepared meal at one of the many local establishments isn’t appealing. Perhaps after a long day of work or returning home from a visit down in Tucson, whatever the reason may be, a quick stop at a local fast food joint is easy, and you know exactly what to order. If you’re a fan of Jack in the Box, you’ll have one new option for making that quick food pit stop.
Jack in the Box is a franchise restaurant, and just about every single of these in Arizona is owned by Stine Enterprise. The franchise group operates 80 locations around the state (and six others in neighboring states). That number will grow, as a new location is set to open in Glendale. Additionally, the franchise group has plans to open four other locations around The Valley in the coming years (the next destination is planned for Verrado).
Stine Enterprise decided to set its sights on the 9152 West Glendale Avenue location because of the continued growth, not just in the city but in the local community. The restaurant is a short walk for fans heading to a Cardinals game, which provides an opportunity to grab affordable food prior to entering the stadium (and the higher food prices found inside).
Jack in the Box is a chain restaurant with an origin dating back to 1951 in San Diego, California. It has since ballooned out to over 2,200 worldwide locations, with most of these located along the West Coast.
Stine Enterprise is a family-owned organization that has been running for several generations in the greater Phoenix area. While Jack in the Box makes up the majority of its portfolio, the company also owns a number of Denny’s and Black Canyon restaurants. With these and the 80 Jack in the Box restaurants in Arizona, the organization annually raises funds to donate to the Make a Wish program here in the state. This money is then used to help assist children in need. In total, Stine Enterprise has raised over $1 million in funds for the organization.
And now, the new Jack in the Box restaurant will not only help raise money for the children’s charity, but it will provide locals in Glendale an opportunity to grab food quickly, regardless of if they are on their way to the big game or driving home from work.
