About Carl's Jr

Carl Karcher and his wife Margaret Karcher started this company in 1941. During WWII, they first opened a hotdog stand in Los Angeles. Later the initiative turned into a firm. In 1956, Carl and Margaret registered their firm as Carl’s Jr. For many years; the company increased its number of stores. Today, you will find 1490 stores operating around the world.

It was the story of a husband and wife starting a company and ensuring it reaches the world.


Hardee’s has a different background story. Wilber Hardee first opened his restaurant in 1960. The location he preferred was Greenville, North Carolina. Customers who visited the store appreciated the food quality and service. Within a year, the story became very popular among customers. Due to unexpected events, Wilber lost total control of the company, and his Associates Leonard Rawls and James Gardner benefited greatly. Wilber lost the company in a poker game. Even after such an event, it seemed that there was no effect on food quality or services.

Hardee’s today has stores across 5000 locations. The company’s management is good and provides amazing culinary franchises to those who want to join and tell their success stories.

Both stores invite their customers to participate in a survey at After taking this survey, there’s a chance to win $1000.

Carl’s Jr. has a long history of being in the restaurant chain. It has been around for many decades. After CKE Holdings purchased this food chain, it got so many advantages. Another popular name in the food chain was Hardee’s, which already had an established global network. So, combining these two companies and some other small food businesses, CKE Holdings started big and gave several franchises to business-oriented people.

CKE Holdings is a large corporation, and there have been some management issues because of its sheer size. Because of some positive managerial decisions, the company developed a survey initiative called TellHappyStar. This survey applies to the top restaurant chain brands, Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr.
