From San Antonio Business Journal:

A possible move of its corporate offices out of the Golden State and to the Lone Star State — and possibly to the Alamo City.

Carls Jr is some nasty tasting food. Please don't let them move here.
They also don't hire legal citizens at their restaurants, at least the ones in calif.

They already opened up a few stores in SA....just because you dont like the food, doesnt mean they shouldnt move their HQ here, particularly if it creates jobs for SA.

As for the hiring of illegal workers in CA, is that a known, proven and verfiable fact or are you just assuming?

I learned last week that the Steak n' Shake headquarters is here in San Antonio, even though there are no actual restaurants in the city.

However, a new location (which is going to be a "prototype" version, used as a showcase to sell potential franchises) is under construction on the northwest side now.

As for Carl's Jr, they're okay; about a half-a-step above McDonald's or Burger King or Wendy's in terms of quality, but nothing special. I would classify their food as "edible", but given so many other better fast food choices nearby (Smashburger, yum!), I pretty much never have a desire to go there. I also learned last week that the Carl's Jr. in Leon Valley held the record for the biggest opening day in franchise history until last month when a new location opened up in Houston (Houston Carl?s Jr. breaks sales records | Houston Business Journal)

This may clear it up a bit.

Biglari Holdings CEO calls 2010

I can't seem to find the article that says that Biglari HOldings bought Steak 'N Shake a while back (sometime in 2010) but I remember reading it it the EN. But the company, since it's a Holdings company owns quite a few other businesses as well.

Carl's Jr is not that bad. It's not that great, either; but I have to say one thing, their restaurant on Bandera Road has some excellent customer service! Probably the best I have ever seen in a fast food burger joint...

As for their headquarters moving to SA, I'm all for it! It will create jobs and be a positive move for both the corporation and the city!

Cheers! M2

I'm all for creating corporate jobs here in S.A especially if they have openings in entry level accounting. Hint, hint, lol.
