CKE Restaurants Holdings, Inc., which operates Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s brands, has selected PAR Brink POS software for their corporate-owned restaurants and select franchisee restaurants.

CKE has been a long-time PAR hardware & services customer, and when the company began looking for cloud-based software capable of enabling future technology stacks, Brink POS was uniquely positioned to help.

According to research conducted by HT for its 2021 POS Trends Software Report, 65% of restaurant operators surveyed plan to add new functionality/features/modules to current POS software.

PAR’s established history of providing CKE with reliable hardware and service solutions, and experience serving other customers in the Tier 1 Quick Service Restaurant space, gave the CKE the confidence to move forward with Brink POS.

Phil Crawford, Chief Technology Officer for CKE, is excited to see the already established partnership continue to flourish. “CKE is continuing to invest in new restaurant technologies and digital platforms that are capable of assisting our brand transform the guest experience,” Crawford said. “We are pleased to add Brink POS to our restaurant technology stack and believe it will allow our brands to continue innovating and to coincide with constantly changing consumer demands.”

“Innovative brands like Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. understand that increasingly, exceptional guest experiences are being delivered digitally,” said Savneet Singh, PAR Technology CEO. “We are pleased that CKE chose PAR’s Brink POS and its open platform to power their demanding store operations and as the foundation of their commitment to ongoing innovation.”

PAR’s Brink POS rollout is expected to start this quarter and continue throughout 2021. CKE’s long-time service providers and PAR’s network of service partners will assist with the deployment and on-going support of the franchisee community.
