Jack in the Box is expanding its presence in the South by entering a new state.

A week after announcing it would expand with 15 new Florida restaurants in Orlando and Tallahassee, the quick-serve burger chain has announced a new agreement to open 15 locations in Georgia. The new sites have not been selected, according to Jack in the Box, but they will be strategically located across the state with a focus on the growing markets of Macon, Augusta and Savannah.

Georgia will be the 23rd state that Jack in the Box operates in. The announcement follows recent openings and development agreements for the chain in areas throughout Utah, Kentucky, Arkansas, Montana and Wyoming. In 2023, Jack in the Box signed 123 new restaurant agreements.

“This new franchise commitment represents a significant step forward in our strategic expansion across the Southeastern United States,” said Tim Linderman, chief development officer. “With the addition of 15 new franchise commitments in and over 30 recently announced commitments in Florida, we're excited to bring our craveable 24/7 menu to even more communities. Georgia's thriving business environment and strong consumer base make it a perfect fit for our continued growth.”
