CKE currently operates Carl's Jr. restaurants in China, Singapore and Malaysia and American Samoa. Additional franchise deals in the region are also planned.

"We are very pleased to welcome Mesa Group Inc. as a part of the CKE team of operators," said Andy Puzder, CEO of CKE Restaurants, Inc. "Mesa's expertise and knowledge of the Vietnamese market, along with their extensive experience in supply chain management, distribution, and real estate, make Mesa Group the perfect partner to bring Carl's Jr. to Vietnam."

Currently, CKE Restaurants franchises 340 international restaurants between both its Carl's Jr. and Hardee's(R) brands. The company has strategic development plans to double its International presence within the next five years. (kbp)
