ST. LOUIS – July 29, 2013 – Hardee’s® is coming to the Windy City and bringing with it a robust menu of premium, sit-down-restaurant-quality menu items.

On Thursday, August 1, in Bolingbrook, Ill., Hardee’s franchisee Frontier Star will open the first of its many planned Chicago-area Hardee’s locations. A second Hardee’s, in the southern suburb of Midlothian, Ill., will open in late August, and several additional locations are being explored.

The new Bolingbrook Hardee’s, at 200 N. Bolingbrook Drive, will officially open its doors on Thursday, August 1, at 5:00 a.m. and each of the first 1,000 customers who purchase a breakfast combo that morning will receive a coupon book redeemable for one free Hardee’s menu item each week for one year.

“We’ve provided Hardee’s premium burgers and other quality menu items to the people of central Illinois for years and are thrilled to expand now into the Chicago area,” said Carl LeVecke, chief operating officer of Frontier Star and grandson of Carl’s Jr. founder Carl N. Karcher. “Bolingbrook is a diverse and growing city. It’s the perfect location for us to begin introducing Chicagoans to Hardee’s. Whether it’s driving through for breakfast to grab a famous Made from Scratch Biscuit™ or dining in for dinner and one of our premium-quality Black Angus beef burgers, we’re confident that new guests will soon become familiar faces.”

Frontier Star currently owns and operates 60 Hardee’s locations across the Midwest. In addition to Frontier Star’s Bolingbrook location and one set to open in Midlothian, multiple additional Chicagoland Hardee’s restaurants are planned to open throughout 2013 and 2014.
