Everything's Coming Up Roses and Disco Balls for Jack

Jack in the Box® makes first appearance in annual Tournament of Roses® Parade; Disco-themed float will promote company's partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters

December 08, 2008 // Franchising.com // San Diego, – For more than 100 years, spectators have lined the streets of Pasadena, Calif., on New Year's Day to "ooh" and "aah" at the fantastical floral floats of the annual Tournament of Roses Parade. But this year, Jack in the Box® restaurants will have parade watchers on their feet groovin' and shakin' with its disco-themed float – "Jack-O-licious."

Designed by Festival Artists Worldwide, the float – the first-ever sponsored by Jack in the Box – will feature a live band, flashing lights and a glittering disco ball atop giant platform shoes surrounded by more than 70 booty-shaking dancers. Riding on the float will be Jack, the quick-serve chain's witty spokesman and namesake, and representatives from Big Brothers Big Sisters, the company's primary charitable partner, including Paul Castillo, 2008 California and Orange County Big Brother of the Year. Joining them will be Jack in the Box employees, franchise operators and company executives.

"Participating in the parade is an amazing honor," said Terri Funk Graham, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Jack in the Box Inc. "It's a wonderful way to showcase our decade-long partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, which provides valuable mentoring relationships to children."
