“All About the South” brand bringing its Southern menu, hospitality to another Georgia community

ALBANY, Ga. (Dec. 20, 2023) — The upcoming New Year will be a bright one for the Albany community, as Jack’s Family Restaurants (Jack’s) — a Southern-based Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) known across four states for its unique, fresh, handmade food — announced today that it will open its doors locally in early January 2024.

From its hand-breaded chicken, handmade biscuits, made-to-order burgers, hand-spun milkshakes and more, Jack’s menu boasts Southern-inspired flavors sure to satisfy customers during breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Located at 2323 N.
