Love love love the Charbroiled Chicken Club sandwich and the fried zucchinni! Their ranch dressing is the BEST too.

Yeah! Just what we need is another fat food, I mean fast food restaurant. I worked at Carl's Jr. in San Francisco back in the 80's when I was a teenager. They had a really good steak dinner.

Speaking of In N Out, when I was in Dallas, the manager told me they're going to start building in Austin when all the Dallas restaurants are complete. Maybe they'll come to San Antonio (fingers crossed).

Are you making the suggestion that In N Out is healthier or not fast food? Or do you just not like Carl's Jr? Because it seems a little hypocritical.

I had read something about their expansion plans. Basically holding flat in CA and expanding like crazy in TX.

If everything really is bigger in Texas, then the departure of the Carl's Jr. headquarters from California could be big, big, big news.
Today, Republican Assemblyman Dan Logue hosted another of his monthly Economic Recovery Group lunch meetings to hear firsthand from Andy Puzder, CEO of CKE Restaurants, Inc., the parent company of Carl's Jr., Green Burrito and Hardees restaurants, on the imminent decision to move the headquarters from California, to Texas.

Carl's Jr. has 700 restaurants in California, one-half of which are owned by CKE Restaurants, and the other one-half are franchises. The company has more than 72,000 employees total, 18,500 of which are in California.

And while Puzder made very clear that Carl's Jr. would be "maintaining" status of their California restaurants, the company plans on opening 300 new restaurants in Texas.

Describing CKE Restaurants as a " job creation machine," Puzder said that the company had more than $4 billion last year in revenues, and paid $60 million in California taxes.

But more than just the large, Texas-sized revenue and tax bills, new Carl's Jr. restaurants in Texas have already realized record opening-week sales figures, and much less upfront costs than the California restaurants.

"It costs us $250,000 more to build one California restaurant than in Texas" said Puzder. "And once it is opened, we're not allowed to run it."

Puzder discussed the difficult California permitting requirement process, and "oppressive environmental requirements." "It takes eight months to two years to get permits to build a restaurant in California," said Puzder. "In Texas, it's one and one-half months."
