Commonly referred to as the west coast counterpart to Hardee's, Carl's Jr. has a much deeper history than many people know. In 1941, Carl and Margaret Karcher used their savings to open a hot dog stand. Due to its success, the couple was able to open the first two Carl's Jr. restaurants a few years later in Anaheim, California. By 1977, there were over 200 locations in California! Two decades later, in 1997, Carl Karacher Enterprises (CKE) Restaurants acquired Hardee's, with both restaurants operating under the same logo and similar menus. Fast forward to today and there are over 5,000 Hardee's and Carl's Jr. restaurants across the world. In the United States, you can primarily find Hardee's in the East and Midwest while Carl's Jr. restaurants are most frequently found in the West.
Carl's Jr. features a variety of burgers, breakfast offerings, and more. Some of Carl's Jr.'s most popular menu items include their signature Chicken Stars, the new El Diablo Burger, and the beloved Hand-Breaded Chicken Biscuit.
