Red trolleys pass by the C Street and 11th Avenue corner the main downtown Jack in the Box lasted until Summer. The restaurant building often filled with City College students and the ever changing sidewalk traffic that comes off the Orange and Blue line trolleys that stop at the college station across the street was taken down earlier in the year during Summer.
New offers of Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal swirled with streusel, and Iced Coffee, for breakfast, and, the two jumbo beef pattie Jack's Big Stack, during lunch hour and dinner tie after work, did not keep this location busy while the hot Summer sun shined. The locals with the "heartiest of appetites" humbly had to settle for something else downtown.
But, the restaurant is on track to go big on C Street again. In late September, construction workers worked in their places on the new two story frame. The high roof will next year stand under the Jack in the Box sign on the pole.
There will be a full menu quick meal restaurant, one that is a little better, in the orders on demand location near the main streets and stops for the buses and trolleys that head out all ways. Finding a stop in restaurant will not tie up downtown workers during lunch.
Inside the Jack in the Box, the workers will start up the next try at fast line service for the strong in taste. The company will break in new servers and managers. There is still time to hire.
San Diegans that do the work can count on their share of affordable health care, employee meals and paid time off, and managers that handle the crew, 401(k) savings plans and employee stock ownership plans.
