CKE was built on the fundamental belief that success is possible with vision, hard work, and determination. This essential philosophy has allowed us to overcome the many challenges we’ve faced in our business over our 60-plus-year history and stay on track. Importantly, we believe—as our founder, Carl N. Karcher did, and still does—that we can best share in our success by taking a leadership role in the communities in which we serve.

Each year, we award thousands of dollars in college scholarships that recognize both academic excellence and community leadership. We work closely with food banks and other groups to support families in need. Our work with local charities allows us to witness firsthand the positive impact of our endeavors.
