NOLA Business Insider: New Orleans poised to get pro soccer franchise |

Good morning.

Professional soccer appears on its way to New Orleans. The 10-year-old United Soccer League, the largest pro soccer organization in North America, wants to start its New Orleans franchise before 2026. A promotional campaign will begin this week, seeking fans’ opinions on where the team should play, its name and its colors.

JACKED UP: About 50 Jack in the Box restaurants could pop up in the New Orleans area over the next several years, as the San Diego-based fast food chain seeks to expand its footprint from more than 2,200 restaurants in the United States to 6,000. The expansion includes the chain’s first locations in both New Orleans and Lafayette.

UNCOVERED EXPENSES: Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon was out of bounds when he directed insurers to cover evacuation costs for policyholders who fled Hurricane Ida from parishes that didn’t order them out, a judge ruled. That means those policyholders aren’t entitled to reimbursements for expenses such as food, fuel and hotels while feeing the storm.
