October 28, 2008 // Franchising.com // San Diego, – There's no doubt that some things are best left in the past. Leisure suits and leg warmers, anyone? But there are a few exceptions, like the much-loved and missed Teriyaki Bowl from Jack in the Box® restaurants, which today makes a triumphant return to menu boards in most of the quick-serve chain's restaurants in the Western U.S.
Introduced in 1993, Jack's original Teriyaki Bowl was a hit with many guests. But due to changing tastes, it was removed from the menu in 2003 – much to the chagrin of its fans.
"We've had plenty of products come and go over the years, but few made an impression like the Teriyaki Bowl," said Teka O'Rourke, director of menu marketing and promotions. "We've had lots of requests to bring it back, so we did, and it tastes just as great as the original."
Jack's new Teriyaki Bowls feature steamed white rice, broccoli florets and carrots with a choice of either all-white-meat chicken or sirloin steak topped with a tasty teriyaki sauce served in a sealed bowl that's easy to pick up and transport while on the go.
The Teriyaki Bowls are available for the suggested prices, excluding tax, of $4.29 for chicken and $4.79 for sirloin steak at all participating Jack in the Box restaurants. Price may vary by market/restaurant.
