This Company is related to Hardee's
Carl's Jr. and Hardee's are "sibling" restaurants and serve much of the same menus. Their name simply differs in different parts of the country.
Carl's Jr., an American-based fast-food restaurant chain, predominantly operates in the Western and Southwestern states. As of 2013 it has started expanding or is already in Canada, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Malaysia, Denmark, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Singapore, Russia, Vietnam, Thailand, Panama, Ecuador, Turkey, Indonesia, United Kingdom, China, The Bahamas, and Mexico. CKE Restaurants, Inc owns the chain. Carl Karcher founded the predecessor of Carl's Jr. in 1941; he jump-started his operations with the opening of his first restaurant, a sit-down full-service location called Carl's Drive-In Barbeque. As this grew wildly successful, he decided to open up a chain of smaller restaurants called Carl's, with more limited menus. In 1954, the chain was renamed Carl's Jr. and the fast-food chain took off. In combination with its sibling restaurant-chain Hardee's, Carl's Jr. is in the top ten fast-food chains in the United States.
