Bye, bye Carl's Jr.: Parent company CKE moving California HQ to Nashville

I guess we should have seen this coming.  I recall the interview with the CEO of Carl's Jr where he shared many of the problems trying to open a restaurant in CA.  The red tape, the labor issues.  Just one right after another.

Orange County Register:
The parent company of Carl’s Jr., founded in Anaheim 60 years ago, is relocating its California headquarters to Nashville, Tenn.

Carpinteria-based CKE Restaurants, which also owns St. Louis-based Hardee’s, is consolidating both offices in Tennessee, where it has several company-owned restaurants. All senior executives, including Chief Executive Andrew F. Puzder will be moving to Nashville, Chief Marketing Officer Brad Haley said.

“Most employees will be offered positions with relocation packages, and the remainder will receive job placement assistance,” the company said in statement.
