Plans for a second Jack’s fast food restaurant are now on file at the planning department in the Carnegie Building. It will rise at 2501 Shorter Ave. in West Rome, complimenting the store on Martha Berry in Armuchee. The site is the former Magic Wand car wash near Sonic. Jack’s, based in Birmingham, was founded in 1960 and has more than 140 locations but is a relatively new player in Northwest Georgia. The Armuchee location opened last September.
What to expect: The plan at the building department had a date of July 5 on it so we’re assuming plans are just under way. Based on the Armuchee location, look for a six-month buildout (start to opening). We’re expecting a restaurant that pretty much matches what is on Martha Berry, covering around 3,500 square feet under roof and seating up to 85 people.
