Report: Jack in the Box Exploring Sale

Sources told Reuters the burger chain is weighing several options that could include a sale of the company.

Jack in the Box has entered into preliminary talks with potential buyers about a sale, according to a Reuters report.

Anonymous sources said the 2,400-unit chain initiated conversations with several parties, including private equity firms, earlier this month, though there is no certainty a deal will be reached.
