The premium Hillshire Farm link sausage biscuit gained such a following in past years that customer demand led Hardee's to bring it back for a limited time.
Parent company of Carl's Jr. and Hardee's, CKE renews its beverage contract with the soft drink provider.
The new menu item was developed following the popularity of their recently introduced Natural Cut Fries.
The sale to Rising Stars, LLC is part of the company's continued refranchising program which began in April.
Originally the company planned to complete the roll out by early 2008, but it has been delayed until the end of next year.
Back by popular demand, Hardee's reintroduces its tribute to a true American classic.
The limited-time menu item contains eggs, bacon, ham, hash browns, and sausage gravy.
The Hardee's and Carl's Jr. fast-food chains will begin purchasing eggs and pork from suppliers who do not keep animals in cages or crates, spokesmen for Hardee's and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said Wednesday.
Hardee's continues its strategy of bringing full-service restaurant quality products to its fast-food customers.
New thicker fries with potato skin left to complement to Hardee's Thickburger(TM) menu. Guests can sample new fries during "Free Fry-Day" promotion on Friday, Aug. 24.
