Carl’s Jr has almost 1,500 stores globally, and the Docklands opening will become its 15th in Australia joining other Victorian stores at Westfield Knox, Cranbourne, as well as Queensland and South Australia.

Previous openings, including at Westfield Knox last November have had burger lovers camping out overnight, so the burger chain urged customers to arrive early well before doors open at 9am.
