Carls Jr. opens first Florida restaurant in Doral

DORAL, Fla. – If you remember eating the charbroiled burgers at Hardee’s growing up in South Florida, you will soon feel the nostalgia because its fast-food corporate cousin Carl’s Jr. is opening in Doral on Tuesday.

The California-based fast-food chain is bringing its black angus thick burgers and hand-breaded chicken tenders east of the Mississippi and will open its doors at 5755 NW 87th Ave.

“Carl’s Jr. and our guests are all about innovative, audacious flavors and live-out-loud, authentic moments, and we can’t wait to be part of the energy and community in South Florida,” said Vice President of Brand Marketing for Carl’s Jr. Anthony Nguyen in a news release.

Nearly two decades ago, Carl’s Jr. was well known out west for its racy ads, featuring Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.

Carl’s Jr. was founded in California about 80 years ago and has more than 1,000 restaurants in the western parts of the United States.
