Guía de Regalos

Popular American burger chain continues Latin America expansion with
two additional Honduras restaurants opening later this year

CARPINTERIA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CKE Restaurants Holdings, Inc. (“CKE”), parent company of Carl’s Jr.®
and Hardee’s®, announced today the opening of its second Carl’s Jr.
restaurant in Honduras. Located in San Pedro Sula, the two-story
restaurant marks the successful continuation of an exclusive
10-restaurant, five-year development agreement, which went into effect
in 2014 between CKE and leading local real estate developer, COHDESA.
Two additional Carl’s Jr. restaurants will open in Honduras – one in the
country’s capital of Tegucigalpa – later this year as part of the
agreement.

“Over the last two years, COHDESA has been a valuable partner helping us
to establish our footprint in Honduras and contributing to our presence
in Central America,” explained Ned Lyerly, President, International at
CKE. “We’re thrilled that our juicy, bigger, better burgers are
resonating so well with Hondurans. We look forward to continuing to
offer the most premium and innovative menu items in the fast food
industry and elevating the overall customer experience with our
best-in-class service.

“In 2015, we opened 35 restaurants in Latin America, a region that plays
a vital role in driving our overall international growth. We see
tremendous potential for our concept and have aggressive development
plans in Honduras and other countries across Central America and South
America.”

“When we opened our first Carl’s Jr. restaurant in late 2014, we
promised Hondurans premium quality food, friendly customer service and
affordable prices, and we’re poised to continue to deliver and expand
upon that promise by opening three new Carl’s Jr. restaurants in 2016
alone,” said COHDESA spokesperson. “Our second location will offer
Hondurans – for the first time – the 1/2 lb. Black Angus beef patty so
they can truly enjoy our bigger, better burgers. We’re also introducing
a delicious breakfast menu and can’t wait for customers to start their
morning with a warm, mouthwatering Made from Scratch Biscuit!”
