Burger chain Jack in the Box is working on plans to open its first Indiana restaurant along Meridian Street just south of 16th Street. The chain has worked up preliminary plans to build on about an acre south of the new CVS pharmacy, brokers said. The San Diego-based chain has more than 2,000 locations in 18 states, primarily in the West. Jack in the Box also owns and operates Qdoba Mexican Grill, which has 26 locations here. Property Lines broke the news in March that the chain was interested in opening several restaurants in Indiana. No word yet on where else they are looking. The original post is here
: Another broker tells me the chain's plans for stores in Indiana have been put on hold. Both the chain spokesman and their local broker declined to discuss the plans as I prepared the post above. Stay tuned.
