CKE Restaurants To Move Headquarters To Franklin

CKE Restaurants Holdings, Inc. on Wednesday announced the company will relocate its corporate headquarters from Carpinteria, Calif. to Franklin.

CKE, parent to the Carl’s Jr.® and Hardee’s® sister chains, will invest $5 million in the new headquarters and create over 100 jobs in Williamson County. 

“We appreciate CKE for choosing Tennessee as home to its corporate headquarters and creating more than 100 new jobs in Franklin,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “In Tennessee, we provide a business-friendly environment that promotes growth and success for both new and existing businesses. We welcome CKE and thank the company for bringing us one step closer toward our goal to make Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.” 

“With the best balance sheet in the nation, Tennessee proves yet again to be a state that can back up its promises,” Economic and Community Development Commission Randy Boyd said. “This is our second headquarter announcement in two weeks, and we are fortunate to soon have CKE call our state home. Thanks, CKE, for choosing Franklin, and welcome to Team Tennessee.” 

Earlier this month, Hankook Tire America Corp announced plans to locate its North American headquarters in Nashville, representing an investment of approximately $5 million and the creation of 200 new jobs.
