Jack’s opens in Phenix City

Newest location one of nine to feature brand’s Digital 2.0 design

PHENIX CITY, AL (May 17, 2023) — The Phenix City location of Jack’s Family Restaurants (Jack’s), opened today, May 17, at 5:00 a.m. This location marks the 172nd in the state of Alabama for the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) network, which is headquartered in Birmingham and boasts more than 230 locations across Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and Mississippi.

Under construction since November 2022, the newest Jack’s on Retail Drive incorporates the brand’s new Digital 2.0 design, allowing for quicker guest service through its double drive-thru and more convenience through its curbside pickup feature.

“Jack’s service is quicker than ever,” said Jack’s Family Restaurants CEO Todd Bartmess. “We encourage anyone in or near the Phenix City location to come out today and experience our Southern-style menu and its fastest service yet.”

In addition to efficient services, the new location also features the new Jack’s Southern Charm architecture design. Introduced in 2022, this design includes a large dining room for dine-in guests, a large interior window for customers to watch their biscuits being made from scratch and sizeable porch seating areas outside.

To celebrate the Phenix City Jack’s opening, the Jack’s app will house exclusive online giveaways, prizes and promotions for the next 12 weeks.

In addition to exclusive offers, Jack’s is also offering a limited-time menu item, the Southern BBQ Pub Burger which features all-beef patties, crispy bacon, bbq sauce, cheese, fried onions, and pickles. Available as a double or single, starting at $4.99 with fries.

Not only is Jack’s working to efficiently bring Southern, homemade food to the community, but the brand is also establishing itself as a strong community partner in Phenix City.
