About Us

Born in California over 75 years ago, Carl Karcher had a hot dog cart and a dream. The hot dog cart became Carl’s JR.® and Carl’s JR.® has become one of the premier burger brands in the world, with over 3,800 restaurants in over 42 countries.

We focus on fresh food made with only premium quality ingredients so that you can indulge in our big, juicy burgers, hand-scooped real ice-cream shakes and hand-breaded chicken. All while you sit back and relax as we bring food to your table with a smile as warm as the California sunshine.
