Brand History

The history of Jack’s Family Restaurants dates back to 1960 when Jack Caddell opened a walk-up stand in the Birmingham suburb of Homewood, Alabama. At the beginning, known as Jack’s Hamburgers, the first menu included “fish-on-a-bun”, French fries, hamburgers, and milkshakes.

Before founding Jack’s, Caddell owned the Pig Trail Inn, a barbeque restaurant, very popular among the teenagers from Homewood. He decided to open Alabama’s first fast-food chain being inspired by the early success of the expanding McDonald’s hamburger chain in 1950s.

Five years later there were Jack’s locations opened all over more than half of the Birmingham area, including Alabaster, Vestavia Hills and Bessemer. In the following period, Jack’s expanded outside the Birmingham area, to Montgomery, Huntsville, Auburn and Anniston, and even outside the Alabama state, with restaurants in Charleston, South Carolina and Jackson, Mississippi.

In the 1970 Jack’s was bought by Florida Capital company. Between 1970 and 1978, the new CEO of the company, Jimmy Moreland has led an aggressive expansion campaign which resulted in Jack’s growing from 17 locations to approximately 80 locations in four states. However, many Jack’s restaurants were forced to close in the early 1980s due to the massive growth among fast-food competitors.

In 1989 LaRussa bought the sole franchise rights to Jack’s from Florida Capital. Under this ownership the company grew to more than 150 locations until 2015 when it was sold to the Canadian private equity company Onex Corporation.

In 2019, Jack’s was purchased by the private equity firm AEA Investors.

Today, a typical Jack’s restaurant has a surface of approximately 3,200 square feet and 25 to 30 employees. Nowadays, there are more than 200 Jack’s Family Restaurants.
