History[edit]

I was reading the History of Jack in the Box and the last thing happened in 1987. can anybody tell me what happened after that. I'm pretty sure something happened in the past 25 years such as them going back to a privately owned company a year later and changing the name from Foodmaker to Jack in the Box inc.

Proposed merge with Bonus Jack[edit]

Notability has not been establishing on the Bonus Jack article, and may not even be deserving of its own article even if it was pbp 14:19, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

That's not a valid argument. An article that meets GNG can still be merged pbp 02:47, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
Your proposal is largely based upon notability, which has been demonstrated per sources added to the Bonus Jack article. Per GNG, "If a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to be suitable for a stand-alone article or list." So, my oppose above is valid. Additional sources (that aren't in the article) are also available. Regarding merges, sure, topics that pass notability guidelines can be merged, but this topic is expandable, and could remain per this potential for improvement, in my opinion. Therefore, it's my opinion at this time that fundamentally, the topic is "deserving" of its own article. Northamerica1000(talk) 19:23, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Support - even if notable, it would better serve the project to be in with the other products. However I could see Jack in the Box#Products spun off into a stand-alone article if it were expanded significantly and included significant space to the company's other "headliner" products like the Jumbo Jack (which is currently a redirect). davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 05:31, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Jack Box[edit]

What happened to Jack Box? Why do they no longer use Jack Box as a mascot? Also, this article claims Leonard A. Comma is Chairman & CEO but on the "Jack Box" article it says "Jack Box" is the CEO of Jack in the box, so which is it? 50.47.124.3 (talk) 18:35, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

[edit]

In the logo section, the image to the right of the pages cites that it's the chain's logo between 2 different sets of dates, so the question begs to be asked: What was the official for the dates November 26th and 27th, 1994? Why is there a 2 day gap? What was the logo during those 2 days? Rick7425 (talk) 17:25, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Food products[edit]

In 1982, it had hot beef & cheese (Monterey Jack cheese) comes for tomato, lettuce, and a kaiser roll. It is discontinue for good? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.237.72.186 (talk) 08:31, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
