Northwest Corpus Christi residents looking for a burger fix now have another option with the opening of a new Jack in the Box restaurant.
There are currently two other Jack in the Box restaurants in Corpus Christi along South Padre Island Drive, the first of which opened in September. A second location on the corner of Kostoryz Road and SPID opened in November.
The new Jack in the Box restaurant, located at 10602 Interstate 37, opened Wednesday with a ribbon cutting ceremony and is similar in design to the other two Corpus Christi locations.
Jack in the Box also donated 20 percent of its opening-day sales at its new location to Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas. Proceeds from the event will help expand the agency's High School Bigs program, which matches high school "Bigs" with elementary school "Littles." Through The Jack in the Box Foundation, Jack in the Box also sponsors a national Big Brothers Big Sisters' High School Bigs Mentoring program that operates in more than 20 communities throughout the U.S.
"The people of Corpus Christi have been very supportive of our move into the market and this is our way of saying, 'Thanks for the warm welcome,'" said Don Hinton, regional vice president for Jack in the Box. "Jack in the Box supports Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies in many of the communities in which we operate, and we're very proud to carry on that tradition in Corpus Christi."
Jack in the Box Inc., based in San Diego, Calif. is a restaurant company that operates and franchises Jack in the Box restaurants, one of the nation's largest hamburger chains, with more than 2,100 restaurants in 17 states, including more than 560 in Texas.
The company also operates a proprietary chain of convenience stores called Quick Stuff, with more than 50 locations, each built adjacent to a full-size Jack in the Box restaurant and including a major-brand fuel station.
Additionally, through a wholly owned subsidiary, the company operates and franchises Qdoba Mexican Grill, an emerging leader in fast-casual dining, with more than 370 restaurants in 39 states.
