American burger chain Carl's Jr., has announced the opening of its new restaurant in Gurugram. Operated by Cybiz BrightStar Restaurants, which is owned by CybizCorp, the new restaurant has added new offerings to its menu such as char grilled chicken patties, premium all white meat chicken breasts and delectable mutton burgers to locals, the company said in a statement.

The company said, the launch is a part of their master franchise agreement in Northern and Western India, between Cybiz and CKE Restaurants Holdings, Inc., ('CKE'), parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, to bring 100 restaurants to India over the next 10 years.

Brad Sommer, VP, Franchise operations & development, CKE, said, "We're excited to continue expanding in India with the opening of a new restaurant at one of India’s most prime locations- Gold Course Road One Horizon Centre."

He further said, "Our premium yet affordably priced menu items really resonate with the diverse, rich flavours of the Indian palate, and we can’t wait for fans to try our thick, 100 percent unadulterated paneer patty coated with a rich spice blend or our 100 percent real white meat chicken breast marinated in a flavour mix of sauces and spices paired with a hand-scooped ice-cream shake."

Carl’s Jr. believes that Gurugram is an ideal location to showcase its authentic menu which is specially designed for the Indian palate including the option of a honey wheat or lettuce-wrapped burger, juicy mutton burgers with four different flavors- korma mutton, mint mutton, awesome onion mutton and mutton famous star.

The new restaurant will also offer an all-you-can-drink soft beverages bar and partial table service.

Samira Chopra, Director, Cybiz BrightStar Restaurants Pvt. Ltd.(Carl's Jr. India), said, "We are pleased to expand our brand to a whole new audience in Gurugram. Given the exceptional response we’ve had in Saket, Pacific Mall and Mall of India to our premium, bigger and char grilled burgers, we expect the same level of enthusiasm for the brand in Gurugram."

Following the launch in Gurugram, Carl’s Jr. will be opening additional restaurants in the Delhi/NCR region before moving to other territories with sub-franchisees, they said.
