Quote of the Day:

Carl Karcher

  • I am happy to donate funds to various organizations that help people in need.
  • In addition we also hire many senior citizens.
  • It's no secret that I've become known for my strong political views.
  • And for a very special group of people, we've provided their only job. I'm speaking of course of the disabled. They have stated they don't want a hand out just a hand. We are happy to give them one.
  • I've often been asked to run for office. I have no desire to do that, I would not want my time with the family or the company restricted because of the demands of an elected position.
  • If the money we donate helps one child or can ease the pain of one parent, those funds are well spent.
  • In other restaurants you'll see employees signing to each other, since we also hire many deaf men and women.
  • We find that other employees are very enthusiastic about their fellow crew members who have disabilities-or what they previously thought of as disabilities.
  • We have developed overlays for the keys of the cash registers with the help of the Braille Institute, so that blind crew members can take orders and help our guests.
  • We have people working for us full-time because they were forced to retire at 65. I know that I never want to stop working, and I am glad that I can offer positions to others who feel the same way.
