Grubhub struck another major fast-food deal May 10, announcing a partnership with Jack in the Box to bring the chain’s food to “hundreds of locations across the country.” Online ordering and delivery from Jack in the Box is now live via the platform in more than 20 markets, including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Dallas, Phoenix, Denver, St. Louis, and Las Vegas. Grubhub plans to expand delivery to hundreds more stores throughout the year, the company said.
To kick off the deal, Grubhub is offering free Jack in the Box delivery, with minimum purchase, at all available stores May 10–16.
“We’re excited to add Jack in the Box to our growing list of chain partners, allowing Grubhub to continue to offer our diners the broadest and best set of restaurants,” said Stan Chia, chief operating officer, Grubhub, in a statement. “Diners will benefit from having their favorite Jack in the Box menu items, Jack’s Spicy Chicken sandwich and curly fries, delivered to their doorsteps, and we’re happy to make delivery easier for specific locations by integrating directly into their own point-of-sale systems.”
The companies are also working together to incorporate Grubhub’s point-of-sale integration into Jack in the Box’s in-house system. This would allow operators to manage all of their orders, both in-house and delivery, from one device.
“We are thrilled to partner with Grubhub for marketplace originated delivery and expand upon our budding roster of delivery partners,” added Iwona Alter, chief marketing officer at Jack in the Box. “We look forward to continuing to deliver convenient food experiences to Jack in the Box fans while granting them even more access to some of their favorite late-night and classic Jack menu items.”
YUM! Brands announced in February that it was taking a $200 million stake in Grubhub with the intention of accelerating delivery to thousands of KFC and Taco Bell locations.
More than 2,200-unit Jack in the Box’s same-store sales decreased 0.2 percent in the first quarter. The company is set to report second-quarter results on May 17. It completed the sale of Qdoba to Apollo Global Management, LLC, for about $305 million in cash in March.
