Carl's Jr was first founded as a hot-dog cart in Los Angeles by Carl Karcher and his wife Margaret in 1941. In 1945, the Karchers moved to Anaheim, California, and opened their first full-service restaurant, Carl's Drive-In Barbecue.

Carl then opened two more restaurants in Anaheim and Brea in 1956, calling them Carl's Jr restaurants, as they were smaller versions of the original Carl's Drive-In Barbecue. Since then, Carl's Jr has taken off and now has 3,664 franchised or company-operated restaurants across 44 states and 38 foreign countries and U.S. territories. (source: )
