Known for its over-the-top food, Carl’s Jr. is testing a foot-long cheeseburger in a couple Southern California units, the chain confirmed Monday.
The burger includes three beef patties on a 12-inch hoagie-like bun. It is being tested for $4, or $4.50 for the deluxe with lettuce, tomato and other toppings.
The foot-long cheeseburger is the latest in a string of envelope-pushing sandwiches on the market, including KFC's bunless Double Down and, more recently, Friendly's Grilled Cheese BurgerMelt, which features an Angus beef patty, lettuce and tomato and mayonnaise between two whole grilled cheese sandwiches.
Officials with Carl’s Jr.’s parent company CKE Restaurants Inc. said it’s not clear whether the foot-long cheeseburger would be rolled out systemwide.
Carpinteria, Calif-based CKE operates, franchises or licenses 1,233 Carl’s Jr. locations, as well as 1,901 Hardee’s restaurants in 42 states and 16 countries.
