Published Sept. 30, 2013


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Jack’s will expand its footprint in Athens by opening a second location. The grand opening ceremony for the city’s newest restaurant, located at 15412 Greenfield Dr., will take place Wed., Oct. 9 at 12 p.m. Lunch will be served, and the ribbon cutting, led by a city representative, will follow.

As part of the celebration, a section of the East Limestone High School (ELHS) marching band will perform. Jack’s Area Manager Dale Seals will present ELHS Band Director Jennifer Janzen with a $300 donation. 

“I can’t think of a better way to open our doors than with the high school band,” said Seals. “We love Athens. This donation is only the beginning of our continued partnership with the Athens community.”

The new location includes a drive‐thru, is handicap accessible and can seat up to 85. Hours of operation for the store will be Mon. through Thurs. 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Fri. and Sat. 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. The store will open at 6 a.m. and close at 9 p.m. on Sundays.

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.

The Greenfield Drive will officially open Wed., Oct 2.
