Carl’s Jr. Flips Burgers and Talks Turkey

Carls Jr Turkey

The new releases are available on a toasted wheat bun or as a lettuce wrap, with each variant not exceeding 500 calories per serving

Carl’s Jr. has significantly tweaked its menu by launching the industry’s first turkey burger line. Featuring an all-natural quarter-pound patty, the offering is being served at participating restaurants across three varieties namely Original, Jalapeño, and Teriyaki.

The new releases are available on a toasted honey wheat bun or as a lettuce wrap. The first is a combination of charbroiled turkey, special sauce, mayonnaise, red onion, tomato, and dill pickle chips. The second option presents a spicy variation with the inclusion of Santa Fe sauce, sliced jalapeño, and pepper-Jack cheese.

The third variant boasts a tropical sandwich twist with the accompaniment of teriyaki sauce, grilled pineapple, and Swiss cheese. Each item from the trio package offers a serving of no more than 500 calories. Carl’s Jr. and sister chain Hardee’s were the first to nationally launch charbroiled turkey burgers in 2011.

“Carl’s Jr. is proud to now offer burgers made from turkey that has never received antibiotics. Whether you prefer charbroiled all-natural beef or turkey burgers, we are the only major fast food chain in the country that has you covered,” said Brad Haley, Chief Marketing Officer at Carl’s Jr.
