BIRMINGHAM, AL. – Jack’s grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting for Argo’s newest restaurant, located at 11 Argo Parkway, will be Wed., Feb 5 at 9 a.m. Council men will be present.

“We couldn’t be more excited about opening this location,” said Benny LaRussa, CEO and owner of Jack’s. “We strive to be a part of the community everywhere we go. As a family company, we’re excited to join the Argo family.”

General Manager Willie Evans has already made steps to become part of the Argo family by going door-to-door visiting local Argo businesses.

“People saw a building and wanted to know what was going there, and I wanted people to know who we were,” said Evans. “I was grateful to meet a lot of nice people. Everybody is friendly, and I’m really excited to get involved and serve great food.”

The Argo location will be staffed by local community members. The restaurant 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, including 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.
