PREMIUM PRODUCTS, BETTER BURGERS
It's 1941, a young Carl N. Karcher and his wife, Margaret, make a leap of faith and borrow $311 to purchase a hot dog cart. One cart grows to four, and within five years, Carl's Drive-In Barbecue opens with hamburgers on the menu.
Over the years, Carl's has continued its growth with an emphasis on quality, service, and cleanliness, pioneering concepts such as partial table service and self-serve beverage bars. The introduction of our Fresh Baked Buns™ in 2013 and our All Natural Burger™ in 2015 confirm our constant emphasis on product innovation and represent our focus on satisfying the tastes of young, hungry consumers.
