Qdoba Mexican Eats said on May 8 it will be adding roughly 100 full-time positions to its corporate team in San Diego in roles ranging from specialists to executive management, according to a news release.
The company, which has more than 740 restaurants across the country, moved its headquarters from Denver to San Diego almost two years ago.
San Diego-based Jack in the Box Inc., which purchased the sit-in Mexican food chain in 2003, agreed to sell it to the New York private equity fund of Apollo Global Management Group for $305 million in December of 2017.
Under the Jack in the Box ownership, QDOBA grew from 85 locations in 16 states with $65 million in sales to more than 700 locations in 47 states and Canada, with sales of more than $820 million.
Qdoba is working to build out internal teams that it had previously shared with Jack in the Box.
