Jack in the Box Inc. franchisees hope the company drops CEO Lenny Comma and remakes the upper management team, including hiring a head of marketing.
Citing weak sales, franchisees of the fast-food chain are urging the company to replace its CEO. The group that represents about 89 percent of Jack in the Box's 2,200 locations says its resources have been cut in recent years, hurting training and remodeling efforts and leading to a loss of confidence in company leadership.
"We really need change," said Michael Norwich, chairman of the National Jack in the Box Franchisee Association. "Nobody is taking ownership and it's resulting in the condition we're in now."
