E. Coli scare...
Highest prices of all the
fast food places.
Now who is still asking why this
stock doesn't do good?
Jack's under a buck menu is
I expect the JumboJack to go upto 1.09 soon. But I
must say, the Jumbo Jack at 1.29 would still be a good
Good "Big Burger" find. You
may want to see if it is a renamed Famous Star; if it
is available at a higher than $0.99 price without
cheese (which it appears it is), and how much. Not much
one can do with a burger, but possibly this might be
a local test of a response to the MCD Big 'n
If they can break the $0.99 price barrier, which I
think they may be the most likely first to achieve this
first, then others might (a big might) be able to inch
away from their $0.99 dependence.
If you get
more info., it might be best to post over at CKR
instead of here at FM.
It is 1/4 lb I believe. It is quite large, with
onions and ketchup on it. Come to think of it, they
didn't have it advertised in the windows of their
restaraunts in Sac. area either. Must be a deal for their 4
Northern Nevead restaruntts, soon to be 6! Go Carls! I
found the carls board too!!
Big Burger+Cheese is
1.49. The big burger may have gone upto 1.29 here, but
I don't think so. 99cents is soon history for
1) Why are you a "sanitarian"? Is this vs.
"insanitarian", or do you do plumbing? Is this some type of
religious creed? Are you a real health inspector using your
office for economic gain by attacking stocks you are
2) What evidence do you have that "many of us
sanitarians will not eat at Jack/s"? Have you done a valid

many Jack Manager's" are against public display of

I can only guess...and this is a guess: you have
too much time on your hands, you want attention, you
haven't a clue, you own a competitor's stock, you are

What are the other competitors doing with their
entry-level 1/4 lbs. sandwich besides the Whopper for $1.99
you mentioned? Carl's Famous star($?); Wendy's Double
Stack ($?); McDonald's Big 'n Tasty ($?) and the other
promo 1/4 lbs. sandwiches; BKs Whopper Jr.
Does FM have an alterntive $0.99 item being tested
(i.e. double burger) in addition to the Jumbo Jack in
Wander around and get some
intelligence on the competitors. Any ability to break away
from the $0.99 price in this industry will be good for
us! Watch Micky D's. You can see them offering $1.59
to $1.79 prices on many "premium" sandwiches like
the new BBQ bacon sandwich, their McFlurries. Soon
we'll see the $1.59 area the NEW discount entry price
point at all fast food.
I can tell you that many of us
sanitarians will not eat at Jack's; Why???? Becuase we know
the facts. Question, why are so many Jack Manager's
against public display of Health Department Inspection
results? Next time you go to Jack's, ask....and let me
I can only guess....and this is a guess, they don't
want the public to see the results. It might bring
back the "ill-state-of-mind" from the long ago
breakout! But again, I would challenge you to ask many Jack
manager to see acopy of their last inspection....and as
our JITB voice....do your own research!

once, we agree. Give me reduced price competition

Had two jumbos yesterday.
WEll... most of the 99cent burgers don't have
much veg. on them, but the jumbo jack is like the
whopper basically, just doesn't taste all burnt and
microwaved. And whopper here at a few BK's is 1.99 now.
There's been a lot of posting related to
Coli scare of Jack in the Box. But I can't
agree it has anything to do with
other than the
poster has a different
First, the E. Coli scare happened so many years
not too many consumer even remember it
Even if he does, there're more
high profile E. Coli
scare (remember Odwalla?)
and more recent. Why
single out Jack in the Box?
Also, most readers of
this message board has
a vested interest in the
stock price of the
stock. So whoever praise the
company has a
likelyhood he is long on the stock.

good likelihood he is short on the stock, or

Conclusion ? Always takes the posting with a
salt. Any extreme opinion (both positive

stock performance. I get in because
I like their
marketing and their food. No
doubt they can do better,

So, I will hold my
