Foodmaker, Inc., is the operator and franchisor of Jack in the Box restaurants, the fifth-largest fast-food hamburger chain in the United States. Jack in the Box had evolved from a car hop restaurant opened in 1941 as Topsy's Drive-In. Over the next several years, as the drive-in restaurant concept began to enjoy increasing popularity, Topsy's Drive-In was expanded to four locations and renamed Oscar's, then renamed Jack in the Box in 1950, when its first drive-through unit was opened in San Diego. The chain expanded to 24 units by 1961 and to 182 units by 1966, the year that Foodmaker, Inc., was established.





Jack in the Box is already looking forward to the summer with new, limited time Pina Colada Smoothies.
The new frozen drink is made with a blend of Minute Made fruit juices and nonfat frozen yogurt.

Jack in the Box also offers Mango, Strawberry, and Strawberry Banana Smoothies on permanent rotation.
