BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Jack’s is proud to announce the grand opening of its newest restaurant in Hancevillle, Ala. The location is officially scheduled to open at 5 a.m. on Wed., Feb. 27 at 103 Styles Street.

A grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting will take place Wed., March 6. Breakfast will be served at 10 a.m., and the ribbon cutting will follow at 10:30 a.m. Following the ribbon cutting, Jack’s will present a check donation of $300 the Hanceville High School marching band.

“We are extremely thrilled about opening this location in Hanceville,” said Benny LaRussa, CEO and owner of Jack’s. “We are a family and community‐oriented fast food chain and are excited about becoming a part of the Hanceville family.”

Hanceville Mayor Kenneth Nail is expected to attend and said Jack’s will be a solid addition to the Hanceville business community. Over the years, he and his wife have driven to Dodge City and Cullman to eat at Jack’s.

“This community has wanted a Jack’s for a long time. I have a good friend who has called Jack’s corporate office many times over the years asking to get a Jack’s in Hanceville,” Nail said. “The quality of food for the amount of money is an excellent value. We are all excited about the new addition to our community.”

As for the mayor’s favorite item at Jack’s?

“I’m a breakfast guy,” Nail said. “There’s nothing like mamma’s home cooking, but Jack’s would probably be as close as you could get to it.”

Dale Seals, Jack’s area manager, hopes the restaurant will be recognized as a place for the locals to gather and enjoy great food. He expressed his gratitude to the entire city for already making Jack’s feel at home and looks forward to having the opportunity to return the hospitality.

“This Jack’s has been a long time coming,” Seals said. “Outside of great burgers and shakes, Hanceville residents have a lot to look forward to with Jack’s here. We pride ourselves on being part of the community and giving back, and we want to get involved and be as much a part of the community as we can.”

The Hanceville restaurant is a standard Jack’s store with a drive-thru. The restaurant can seat up to 85 people and is handicap accessible. The hours of operation for the store will be Sunday through Thursday 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Jack’s features a wide range of menu items which include its signature sandwich: the “BIG JACK”, fried chicken, hamburgers, salads, delicious milkshakes and the award-winning, made from scratch, buttermilk biscuits on the breakfast menu.
