Jack in the Box is expanding in new markets at home and outside the United States.

The quick-serve hamburger chain has signed its first new development agreement in Mexico in more than 30 years, a 22-unit commitment in four northern Mexican States. 

In addition, as part of the Del Taco refranchising initiative, the company announced new development agreements for both Jack in the Box and Del Taco to enter Montana and Wyoming. (Jack in the Box acquired Del Taco in 2022.) This is the first time both brands have entered these markets.

The signing comes on the heels of the brand’s recent announcements for expansion into the new markets of Orlando (Florida) and Arkansas, along with additional commitments in Hawaii, Tennessee, Missouri, Texas, and California.

“We’re excited to announce our expansion into this international market as we continue to expand our footprint in new markets such as Montana and Wyoming,” said Tim Linderman, chief development officer.
