Reclaim Your Angus: Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. Takes Shots at McDonald’s
By now we know the Angus Third Pounders have been discontinued from the McDonald’s menu. The $3.99 Angus burgers were replaced by $3.99 Quarter Pounders (I reviewed the Bacon Habanero one). Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. are here to remind us that they still have Angus beef on their menu.
“To burger fans who care about quality – I hear you,” says the CEO of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. Andy Puzder. “Our competitor has made a choice to drop its Angus burgers, but for customers focused on premium quality and taste, and not on less for less, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s welcome your grieving stomachs. We were the first to offer Black Angus in our Six Dollar Burger and Thickburger lines. Following McDonald’s’ decision, our bigger, better Black Angus burgers are not only the only Angus burgers available in fast food, but I can assure you that they are here to stay.” Thoughts?
