Ever Wonder What Brought Fast Food to Alabama?
After watching the newly franchised McDonalds blossom in 1960, Jack Caddell realized Alabama could use its own fast food restaurant. Caddell immediately began researching the operations of the new food chain, then by namesake founded Jack’s in Homewood, Alabama, on November 21 of that year. From there, Jack’s would soon change the restaurant game in Alabama forever.
The first Jack’s in Homewood, Alabama, 1960.
Jack’s quickly became popular in Homewood by serving 10-cent Coca-Colas with 15-cent hamburgers and fries through Alabama’s first drive-in restaurant location. With the combination of their low prices and drive-in location, Jack’s became one of Alabama’s first fast food restaurants. Sixty years later, Jack’s now has 152 locations, two of which are right here at home in Auburn and Opelika!
