HONOLULU – Seattle-based Jack in the Box franchise operator PARS Group LLC has acquired the franchise for Jack in the Box restaurants in Hawaiʻi and Guam from Blue Pacific Management.
The acquisition marks PARS Group’s entry to the Hawaiʻi market.
“We’re pleased that a strong franchise operator of the Jack in the Box brand will continue the excellent work Blue Pacific Management has done over the years to build our brand in Hawaiʻi and Guam and make it part of the local communities,” said Tim Linderman, SVP Chief Development Officer of Jack in the Box Inc.
PARS will continue to operate the 28 Jack in the Box restaurants in Hawaiʻi, and 2 in Guam, with local favorites such as the Portuguese Sausage & Egg with Rice breakfast platter remaining on the menu.
