Company Description


Hardee's is a quick-service burger chain based in St. Louis, Missouri. Since 1997, it has been owned by CKE Restaurants, the parent company of another fast-food burger restaurant, Carl's Jr. Hardee’s operates more than 2,000 units in 30 U.S. states and 9 locations.

Compared with Carl’s Jr., which tend to be in Western parts of the country, Hardee’s locations usually occupy the Southern and Midwestern areas of the United States. In 2015, Hardee’s introduced the industry’s first all-natural burger with all-natural, free-range beef.
