Hardee’s was founded in 1960 in Greenville, North Carolina, but its headquarters are currently located at downtown St. Louis, Missouri. The restaurant is known as a manly restaurant because it serves bigger burgers, therefore, Hardee’s menu prices are generally more expensive than an average fast food restaurant such as McDonald’s or Burger King. Carl’s Jr. menu prices are pretty much the same as Hardee’s.

Hardee’s FAQ

What time does Hardee’s open?

What time does Hardee’s close?

Hardee’s closes at 11 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday and midnight on Friday and Saturday. 

What year was Hardee’s founded?

Hardee’s was founded in 1960. Hardee’s counterpart, Carl’s Jr. was founded in 1941. The two restaurants merged in 1997, which launched the start of their co-branded relationship. 

Where was the first Hardee’s opened?

The first Hardee’s was opened in Greenville, North Carolina. With one of the few drive-through windows in existence, Hardee’s quickly grew in popularity after opening the first location. Greenville’s restaurant wasn’t the first one for long, however. The owner of Hardee’s started franchising the burger joint just months after the initial location opened. 

Who owns Hardee’s?

CKE Restaurants Holdings, Inc. owns Hardee’s. Prior to this acquisition, a Canada-based company called Imasco owned Hardee’s from 1981 to 1987. CKE purchased Hardee’s in 1997 for $327 million, merging it with another one of its subsidiaries, Carl’s Junior. At the time of the merger, CKE was co-branding Hardee’s and Carl’s Junior but has since decided to advertise the two fast food chains separately. 

How many Hardee’s restaurants are there?

There are nearly 4,000 Hardee’s restaurants around the world. Hardee’s has locations in 37 countries and can be found in 44 out of the 50 United States. The majority of Hardee’s restaurants are located in the southern and midwestern states.

Who started Hardee’s?

Wilber Hardee started the Hardee’s franchise. The idea behind the first restaurant was to offer customers restaurant-quality burgers at a drive-through window. His vision spread like wildfire, impressing entrepreneurs who wanted to be a part of the business. Within just five months, Hardee’s had its first franchise owner. 

How did Hardee’s get its name?

Hardee’s got its name from the founder of the fast food chain, Wilber Hardee. 

How late does Hardee’s serve breakfast?

Hardee’s serves breakfast until 10:30 a.m. Breakfast starts at 6 a.m., or whenever your local Hardee’s opens in the morning. Some of the most popular breakfast items at Hardee’s are the Breakfast sliders with egg, cheese, and sausage or bacon; the Frisco Breakfast Sandwich with egg, ham, and cheese on sourdough bread; and the Loaded Breakfast Burrito with egg, sausage, bacon, ham, cheese, and salsa. 

What time does Hardee’s serve lunch?

Hardee’s starts serving lunch immediately following the end of breakfast at 10:30 a.m. There is no difference between the lunch and dinner menu, so you can order the same menu items all throughout the day after breakfast ends. 

Why is Carl’s Jr. called Hardee’s?

Carl’s Junior is called Hardee’s because they are owned by the same parent company. When CKE Restaurants Holdings, Inc. acquired Hardee’s in 1997, the parent company attempted to co-brand the two fast food franchises. However, in 2018, CKE decided that it was in their best interest to separate the two brands as they appeal to vastly different audiences.

  12. I love Hardee’s. I get coupons and eat so cheap it is awesome !! I get 2 bacon, egg and cheese biscuits for $2.29 and a $1.00 diet coke with light ice for a total of $3.51. When I eat lunch I will get either a 1/3 lb thick cheeseburger for $1.79 and a $1.00 diet coke or a $1.99 1/3 lb original thickburger with a $1.00 diet coke. This morning I got 2 sausage, egg and cheese biscuits for $1.88 and a $1.00 diet coke. I do get tired of fast food occasionally and go eat a buffet somewhere. Coupons are the name of the game now. Most restaurants are too expensive these days.

  13. Gregory Smith says:

    can u add the Sausage (or Bacon) Egg and Cheese Texas Toast Breakfast Sandwiches thanks

  14. Please include a date with this list. Fast food prices go up so quickly throughout each year that I don’t know if any of these prices would actually be available if I drove down to me local Carl’s Jr. right now.

  15. Gregory Smith says:

  17. DON WILSON says:

    I’m curious to what the actual contents of the $5.00 bag mean is and what, if any, condiments can be added. The first ones we got (my wife and I) we asked if we could have lettuce and tomato/pickles. We were told …”any way you want them”. No extra charge. Same with the hot dog. We were asked if we wanted chili and/or onions. Again, no extra charge.
    The next time we stopped for the $5.00 bag(s), same story.
    And, the third time we opted for the same thing, all comments were the same.
    While helping my brother-in-law with his deck, his wife went to get us the $5.00 lunch (3 of them). When asked what she owed, the response was $19.00 and change. She questioned them what was the cost above the $15.00 for (3 bags). The response was for the chili on the three hot dogs.
    Needless to say, I am at least a little curious on the actual pricing.
    I haven’t yet tried the other “$5.00” meals available at the other fast food places but, this may prompt me to do so.

  18. I’ve never seen wings at Hardee’s.

  19. Gregory Smith says:

    can u add the new menu at Hardees the Bacon Velveeta Patty meltdown thanks

  20. what about the price for the big breakfast burger ?

    1. Gregory Smith says:

      Mark i think this menu page relates to Hardees only but could be wrong anyways Hardees does not have the Breakfast Burger but Crls Jr has it

  21. John Haywood Jr says:

  27. thomas E.boyles says:

    isee theon tv ,,buy no hardeesfor 100miles roundtrip i live in newton ks. please put 1 inwicata ks. tomboyles ph3162834517 yhank you

    1. They advertise for places that are within a 50 mile limit. I used to see Bojangle’s all the time and looked it up. Of course it was 48 miles away.

  28. When I stay at the hotels near LAX there is a Carl’s Jr. that has a sandwich named “BIG CARL” but I don’t see it on the burger list above. It is comparative to a Big Mac but much bigger and better. I order it every time. Add it to your price list, please.

  29. Can we get a seperate listing for Carl’s JR since they each have different menu items?

  30. Timothy Rolfde says:

    I just got shorted $1 at the drive-through. There was no receipt in the bag, but the item was (using a coupon for $2.39) three chicken taquitos. With local tax that comes to $2.60, but I was given $2.40 — i.e., charged $3.60.

    1. Did you pay with a $6 bill?

  31. Vastly different audiences? Can you elaborate?
