Jack in the Box Wiki


The Great American Takeout was a campaign launched by a restaurant coalition to encourage Americans to order delivery or pick-up meals on a particular day to support the struggling restaurant industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.[1] Jack in the Box announced they were joining the campaign on March 24, 2020.[2]

Initially, the campaign was focused on one day (March 24, 2020), but it expanded to become a weekly event, occasionally with a specific theme such as "Pizza Party" or supporting Black-owned businesses. The campaign ceased posting on social media on March 24, 2021, the campaign's first anniversary.
