OK, I just learned that Carl’s Jr., the U.S.-based fast food burger chain already has 6 restaurants in Costa Rica.
That’s right, they have six already and plan to open five more in 2013. Dios mio.
The Costa Rican expansion is part of a global push that has seen Carl’s Jr. outlets pop up everywhere from Brazil to New Zealand, and from Vietnam to Turkey.
I admit it, I’ve never eaten at a Carl’s Jr., either here or in the United States. Although I have found their sexy car washing ads clever and smart from a PR point of view.
So what’s the deal, and what’s your verdict? Has anyone tried one yet? How does it stack up?
