Thirteen suburban Qdoba Mexican Grill restaurants are among the 67 underperforming, company-operated restaurants that will close nationwide in the next three months, according to a spokesman for the parent company Jack in the Box Inc.

Other Qdoba restaurants closing are in River Forest, Oak Lawn, Orland Park, Hillside, and five in Chicago -- for a total of 18 restaurants in the Chicago area. Eight Qdobas will remain, including the Wheaton, Schaumburg and Lincoln Park locations.

Qdoba President Tim Casey said in a news release that these closures will help the company focus its advertising and marketing resources toward existing and planned restaurants in core markets.

"We also expect to provide an even better dining experience for our guests as our operations teams concentrate their efforts on supporting these markets," Casey said in the statement.

Qdoba has 647 restaurants, of which 340 are company-operated. The company plans to open more than 100 new restaurants this year and next year in other locations. Company spokesman Brian Luscomb said it's possible some of those could be in the Chicago area.

"Chicago is a market that aligns well for our brand," he said. "We are considering other development opportunities in the market."
