Carl's Jr closing both Toronto locations

After a brief stint in the city, American burger chain Carl's Jr will be closing up its two Toronto locations at 4 p.m. today, reports Newstalk 1010.

According to the local radio station, contractual problems between Carl's Jr and franchisee 6 Points Food Services led to this surprise shutdown.

Both the Queen Street West and Yonge and St. Clair outposts will shutter. But, if you ever start craving an Original Six Dollar Thickburger, crisscross fries and a milkshake, you can always head outside of Toronto to Guelph or Waterloo, two places that are still home to Carl's Jrs.

And, according to the brand's Twitter feed, Carl's Jr is planning to open 30 additional restaurants across Canada this year. Though, it's unclear whether any of these will be located in Toronto.




Now that Carl's Jr is leaving the building, we can only speculate about what'll eventually take over the massive, former HMV space at the corner of Queen and Beverly.

What do you think should replace it? Let us know in the comments.
