INNOVATION IS THE DIFFERENCE
Hardee´s® is focused on constant innovation and a desire to satisfy the tastes of young, hungry consumers through our premium menu and edgy, memorable advertising. We virtually invented the concept of eating out for breakfast with our famous Made-From-Scratch™ Biscuits. Hardee´s® is also known for introducing the 100% Black Angus beef Thickburger® line, one of the first sit down restaurant style burgers in the quick service industry. These gourmet burgers are complemented by our premium Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shakes & Malts™.
IT'S A WHOLE NEW FRANCHISE
Today Hardee´s® is a best-in-class franchise opportunity poised for sustained growth. In the December 2008 Franchise 500®, Entrepreneur Magazine recognized Hardee´s® outstanding position with a prestigious ranking among the top 3 burger franchise opportunities.
