Most of the Jack in the Box(R) restaurants that closed in anticipation of
Hurricane Ike or as a result of the storm's impact have re-opened. As of
Thursday, Sept. 25, 2008, 31 restaurants (27 Company, 4 franchise) in the Gulf
Coast region of Texas remain closed. The Company expects 4 restaurants to
re-open by the end of this week, and 14 locations to re-open as soon as utility
service is restored. Thirteen Company-operated locations are expected to be
closed for a longer period of time. At the time Hurricane Ike made landfall on
Friday, Sept. 12, approximately 235 Company and franchised restaurants (189
Company and 46 franchised) in the storm's immediate path were closed. At the end
of the Company's third quarter of fiscal 2008 (July 6), there were 2,148 Jack in
the Box restaurants, including 1,378 Company and 770 franchised locations.

Four franchised Qdoba Mexican Grill(R) restaurants closed when the storm
disrupted utility service as it passed through the Midwest, but all have
re-opened. At the end of the Company's third quarter, there were 438 Qdoba
restaurants, including 99 Company and 339 franchised locations.

The Company has property and business interruption insurance, subject to certain
deductibles. At this time, it is too early to determine the financial impact
caused by storm damage and related disruption of utility service.


     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
