Jack in the Box restaurants in Killeen, Copperas Cove, and Waco are closed for a week as they transition from local to corporate ownership following a franchisee default.

KWTX's Ke'Sha Lopez reports that the area franchise holder defaulted on the franchise agreement, so management will now be conducted by the company's headquarters in San Diego.

According to Lopez's report, employees will need to go through a hiring process with the company once the transition is complete.
