DoorDash, the on-demand delivery service and technology company, announced a partnership with CKE Restaurants Holdings, parent company of Carl's Jr. and Hardee's to deliver the chains' famous premium burgers, sandwiches, fries, shakes, and more. The partnership will launch in Southern California at select Carl's Jr. locations, with plans to expand to additional Carl's Jr. and Hardee's restaurants across the country in the coming months. This announcement marks Carl's Jr.'s first official delivery partnership and DoorDash's first partnership with a national quick-service burger chain.
Starting today, customers in the Southern California area, including Los Angeles, San Diego, and Orange County, will be able to order their favorite menu items from Carl's Jr. via the DoorDash Android or iOS app or online at DoorDash.com. Through DoorDash, customers can order delivery of Carl's Jr. classics including a variety of 100 percent Angus Beef Thickburgers, Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shakes, CrissCut Fries, and Carl's Jr.'s latest menu item: the Midnight Moonshine Burger. To celebrate the partnership, for a limited time DoorDash will waive delivery fees on all Carl's Jr. orders. After the promotional period, delivery fees start at $3.99 and there are no minimum order sizes.
"We're thrilled to bring Carl's Jr. to our Southern California customers with DoorDash, making it easier and faster than ever for them to get the burgers they love," says Tony Xu, CEO and cofounder of DoorDash. "Whether an old favorite or a new taste, we're looking forward to giving customers a new and innovative way to get delicious, custom orders from Carl's Jr. right to their doorsteps."
