Renovated Carl’s Jr. on Milpas Street to Reopen Wednesday

The Carl’s Jr. restaurant at 7 S. Milpas St. in Santa Barbara will reopen at 6 a.m. Wednesday after a nearly five-month total rebuild and remodel effort.

Opening-day festivities will include a prize wheel starting at 10 a.m. and running as long as supplies last. Happy Star will be on hand throughout the day for fun and photo ops. From 2 to 4 p.m., KJEE-FM Santa Barbara will conduct a live remote broadcast from the rebuilt unit, which has been closed since mid-August.

The dual-branded Carl’s Jr./Green Burrito will reopen with a new addition to its breakfast menu: Hardee’s® Made from Scratch Biscuits™. The rebuilt restaurant has been tooled up to include a biscuit-making station. The biscuits are made fresh in the restaurant every morning.

The building may be new, but the menu features the same fresh products and tried-and-tested ones that Carl’s Jr. customers have come to expect over the years. New menu offerings include the meat-on-meat Memphis BBQ Burger.

— Julie McLean is a public relations specialist for Carl’s Jr.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
