Jack In The Box was founded in the year 1951. The company has been operational for almost 68 years now. The founder of the company was Robert Oscar Peterson. The origin of the company goes way back to the year 1941 when Topsy's Drive-in was established. Later on, the restaurant was renamed to Oscar's. In the year 1947, the founder of the company had purchased the rights to the intercom system from a business in Alaska. It was in the year 1951 that the first Jack In The Box restaurant was opened in San Diego, USA. It was also the first restaurant that featured the intercom based drive-through system that allowed to provide faster services to the customers. The concept was very successful.
By the year 1966, the company had its presence in over 180 locations, all over California and Southwestern part of the USA. Then in the year 1969, the company was taken over by Ralston Purina. During the 1970s, the company significantly expanded with the help of franchising. In the year 1980, the company was struggling to compete with McDonald's, and therefore, the business strategy of the company was changed to meet much more affluent customers. As of the year 1985, the company was sold by Ralston Purina to its senior management team. Then in the year 1987, the company had become a limited public entity. In the year 2004, the company introduced a chain of fast food restaurants, known as JBX Grill. But, the newer concept proved to be unsuccessful, and the stores were converted again to Jack In The Box branding, in the year 2006. The headquarters of the company is based in 9330 Balboa Avenue. The name of the place is San Diego, while the name of the state is California, USA. The pin code of the area is 92123.
