CARPINTERIA, CA-Same-store sales a CKE Restaurants’ Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s chains rose 7.4% year over year during the four weeks ended Oct. 9. Hardee’s, which has just over 1,900 units, came in at 7.6%, while Carl’s Jr.’s close to 1,100 restaurants were up 7.2%.

The results were much better than the same year-ago period, when same-store sales were down 3.2% for both chains. Hardee’s fell 4.5% and Carl’s Jr. was down 1.8% during that stretch.

Executives credited the a decrease in gasoline prices and an effective advertising strategy for the favorable recent results. It was the 11th straight month that the company posted a same-store sales gain.

Company-owned Hardee’s brought in $50.6 million of revenue during the month, and Carl’s Jr. also collected $50.6 million. The company’s 98 La Salsa Mexican-restaurant chain, for which the company did not release same-store sales data, had $3.3 million in revenue.

The results come after an announcement earlier this month that the company is entering Russia. CKE forged a 50-restaurant agreement with a local firm to build stores in that country.
