CKE deal may help move Carl's Jr. national

Published on .

CKE Restaurants may be close to purchasing another fast-food chain in an effort to take its Carl's Jr. hamburger chain national. According to an executive close to the company, CKE in the next two weeks will acquire a national chain and convert the units to Carl's Jr. restaurants. The move will be separate from last week's announced merger of Checkers Drive-in Restaurants and Rally's Hamburgers, chains in which CKE holds a minority interest. Mendelsohn/Zien, Los Angeles, handles the $29 million Carl's Jr. account.
