CKE Restaurants Holdings, Inc. (“CKE”), parent company of Carl’s Jr.®, has announced the opening of the 6th restaurant in Thailand. The restaurant is locally-owned and operated by Carl’s Jr. Thailand Franchisee ‘R&R Restaurant Group Ltd.’, who opened the first Carl’s Jr. Restaurant in Thailand in 2012 featuring the authentic California burgers.
The new Carl’s Jr. restaurant, located at the brand-new Terminal 21 Mall in Pattaya, will introduce the taste of California to a young energetic population of consumers.
