Franchise concept

Carl’s Jr. offers the franchisee and a maximum of 3 managers 12 weeks of Franchise Management Training in one of their Licensed Carl’s Jr. Training Restaurants. This comprehensive program is planned so that you graduate with plenty of time before the opening of your restaurant. Before your first location’s Grand Opening, Carl’s Jr. will give you on-location training through a dedicated group of All Star instructors.

Carl’s Jr. shares demographic, competition and mapping data with all of their franchisees, as well as prototype construction blueprints for all new franchisees . Once you have found a prospective site on which to build your restaurant, you will then need to fill out a Site Application. After the Carl’s Jr. Real Estate office receives these forms, they will review them and decide on the adequacy of the site. Then a construction project leader will help you with design, building requirements and can give you guidance on quality builders in your region.

Once your location is built, Carl’s Jr.’s will provide you with unending support that includes supplying food, supplies and equipment for your restaurant. Additionally, a Franchise Business Advisor will be appointed to your business in order to help you to evaluate and improve all fields of your restaurant business. Furthermore, the Research and Development staff will give you continual testing and research of new product lines while also sustaining their current high-quality products.

Finally, the Marketing/Advertising team will aid you in local store advertising tactics, point-of-sale marketing materials, and will always keep you informed on upcoming national and regional promotions.

Carl's Jr. encourages potential franchise owners to do their own investigation in this franchise system before becoming committed to any new business undertaking. Carl’s Jr. even gives you the opportunity to talk to existing franchisees who are a great source for getting reliable answers to questions about finances, marketing, operations, etc.
