He Chicago Tribune is reporting that the fast food chain Jack in the Box coming to the Chicago area. Jack in the Box CEO Darin Harris told the Tribune that they plan to open “eight company-owned stores.” The locations include Plainfield, New Lenox, Naperville as well as several others, including one in Chicago near Midway Airport. Most restaurants will open next year, although some say they will open in 2026.

According to the Jack in the Box website, the restaurant chain “was founded in 1951 and has developed a loyal customer base with a strong reputation for thinking outside the box when it comes to fast food.”

“When we opened our first location in San Diego in 1951, it had a big jack-in-the-box clown on the roof. It was also one of the first drive-thru restaurants. Plus, hamburgers were only 18 cents.”
