Who We Are

Carrols' success can be attributed to its people; people who are dedicated to providing outstanding service and quality food for its guests. Commercials and slogans can only say so much about a company. The real proof is in a visit to a restaurant. Are the people friendly? Is the service efficient? Does it seem like the people really care?

The restaurant is only the beginning. A commitment to do the best job possible, regardless of the task, is evident throughout our organization. Advancement is possible in other companies, but at Carrols, our philosophy is "Promotion is a natural progression, not a chance happening." We offer real career opportunities. If you are motivated and want to test your potential, Carrols is the perfect place for you.

A Word From Our President

Carrols' greatest asset is its people. One of the greatest pleasures of my job is visiting with our restaurant staffs and discussing each person's career growth with Carrols. It is truly amazing how long many of our restaurant level and District Management staff have been with Carrols. The tenure of our employees is quite unique for the restaurant business.

My sense is that Carrols' people stay with us because we care. We are committed to each individual's career development. At Carrols, you are not just a number and this is not simply a job. Carrols is interested in creating opportunities for you; for your career.

Of course, career advancement is a mutual responsibility. Your obligation is to work hard and smart and have the desire to learn and advance. Our obligation is to create an environment where you can do just that. We are committed to your development, your nurturing and your training. This commitment manifests itself in classroom training, in-restaurant training and personal career counseling with your District Manager.

Due to our size and continued growth, career opportunities are always present at Carrols. These opportunities are even more likely to become available due to our policy of "promotion from within". It is our philosophy and our strong desire to fill each of our management openings by promoting an existing Carrols' employee.

If you are a dynamic individual who is frustrated by bureaucracy and tenure rules, Carrols is for you. We offer quick advancement, training and no pre-determined time requirements. All we want are the best employees in the business.

1960, 1975, Today

Our History



It all began in 1960, when Carrols Systems was founded as a division of a larger Midwestern firm. At that time, Herbert N. Slotnick was granted the exclusive Carrols license rights for the state of New York. Under his direction, Carrols Drive-In Restaurants of New York became the largest and most flourishing franchise group in the System - and Carrols became the northeast's leader in the growing fast food field.

Progressing through the mid-seventies, Carrols had grown to one of the largest regionalized fast food chains in the northeastern United States, with over 150 restaurants.



In the latter part of 1975, Carrols made a major decision concerning its future growth and direction. Carrols entered into a franchise agreement with BURGER KING ® Corporation, which involved the conversion of a select number of Carrols restaurants to BURGER KING ® restaurants over a five-year period. Concurrently, the remaining Carrols restaurants (non-convertible locations) were phased out and became non operational.



Today Carrols owns and operates over 1,000 restaurants under the Burger King and Popeyes brands.
