This combined mega-chain didn’t really get their start in Missouri, but they have since become the Show Me State’s biggest claim to fame in the fast food world.
Hardee’s began life in Rocky Mount, NC, while its West Coast counterpart, Carl’s Jr, was born out of a hot dog cart in Los Angeles. Sometime in the ’90s, the two came under the banner of CKE Restaurant Holdings, and in that same time span, Hardee’s moved its headquarters away from Rocky Mount and to St. Louis, where it has been ever since.
Hardee’s is well known for their “Thickburgers,” which are bigger than the average fast food burger, and more pricer; but the higher price is worth it considering that Hardee’s uses Angus beef instead of frozen thin patties and that makes all the difference when compared to the other chains.
Although Arby’s got its start in Ohio, the chain resonates with many in Montana.
There are a lot f Arby’s within Montana’s borders, and we do mean a lot. Remember, Montana is a state that treats beef with much respect, and Arby’s famed roast beef sandwiches are simply the stuff of legend under the big sky.
Montana has the meat, and Arby’s has moved in a capitalized on it.
