CKE is seeking …
Our preference is to sell territorial franchise development agreements on a regional basis (meaning multi-unit franchises in specified regions or markets)
In certain cases we will consider single restaurant development opportunities
We evaluate each franchise candidate based on their ability to develop the brand, their organizational and financial resources, as well as their passion to be a part of the CKE family of brands.
We offer free-standing restaurants with drive-thru as well as end-cap locations to multi-tenant developments including new prototypes developed for the post-Covid environment
