News: Carl's Jr ./ Hardee's Tests Fresh Baked Buns

Following in the spirit of their Made from Scratch Biscuits, Carl's Jr. and Hardee's are testing fresh baked hamburger buns for their premium Six Dollar Burgers and Thickburgers.

Like the biscuits, the buns are baked daily in-house at each test location. The buns come standard on the Six Dollar Burger and Thickburgers, but are also available on regular Carl's Jr./Hardee's burgers for a 30-cent upcharge.

I contacted Carl's Jr. for comment, but was told that they don't comment on test items as a matter of company policy.

If successful, the buns would give the sister chains a leg up over their competition as no other major fast food chain has offered buns baked fresh in-house before. Baking your own buns has generally been more the domain of fast casual and sit-down restaurants, so it could be a big thing for Carl's Jr. and Hardee's.
