Hardee's(R) sells 11 restaurants completing its strategic refranchising plan

CKE Restaurants, Inc. announced last month that it sold 11 Hardee's(R) restaurants in the Jefferson City and Columbia, Missouri markets to Rising Stars, LLC. This transaction, it says, marks the successful completion of its strategic refranchising program which the company had originally announced in April, 2007.

According to the information provided, this refranchising program has resulted in CKE Restaurants selling a total of 238 Hardee's units to franchisees and securing commitments for 115 new franchise restaurants under development agreements for those markets. The company sold 38 units more than it originally announced it would refranchise as the demand for these units exceeded expectations. It currently owns 477 Hardee's restaurants out of a total of 1,913 company-owned and franchised Hardee's restaurants and 415 Carl's Jr. (R) restaurants out of a total of 1,194 company-owned and franchised Carl's Jr. restaurants.

This transaction is, the company continued, the latest step in its program to increase overall unit growth, particularly franchise unit growth. So far this year, it has entered into a total of 20 franchise development agreements representing commitments for 380 restaurants, consisting of 236 domestic units and 144 international units, including agreements to enter three new countries - China, Pakistan and Kazakhstan. Over the next five years, the company is aiming to add more than 800 new restaurants to its global store base. (kbp)
