Jack in the Box Restaurants Debut Premium Burgers on Ciabatta Bread

Italy is famous for its world-class cuisine. So when Jack, the popular spokesman for Jack in the Box(R) restaurants, went searching for a great-tasting, artisan-style bread, he headed for the land of pasta, Puccini and Pisa. His find: ciabatta. Jack in the Box has created several culinary masterpieces on ciabatta, including Jack's first-ever ciabatta burgers, which debut today.

Featuring the same hearth-baked ciabatta roll that made the chain's Bruschetta and Classic Chicken Ciabatta sandwiches a hit with consumers, Jack in the Box has created two very different but equally delicious burgers:

-- Original Ciabatta Burger - features a jumbo hamburger patty on a lightly toasted ciabatta roll with green leaf lettuce, tomato slices, red onion rings and pickle fillets topped with a creamy roasted red pepper sauce

-- Bacon 'n' Cheese Ciabatta Burger - features two (yes, two!) jumbo hamburger patties stacked on a lightly toasted ciabatta bun with green leaf lettuce, tomato slices, red onion rings, bacon, and two slices of American cheese topped with a smoky cheddar mayo

"Our Ciabatta Burgers are true originals," said Michelle Vespa, director of menu marketing and innovation for Jack in the Box Inc. "With unique, high-quality ingredients like ciabatta, roasted red pepper sauce and smoky cheddar mayo, they break the burger mold and take fast food to a whole new level."

Jack's new Original Ciabatta and Bacon 'n' Cheese Ciabatta burgers are available now for a suggested price of $3.29 and $3.99, respectively, excluding tax, at all participating Jack in the Box restaurants.
