CKE Restaurant Holdings eyes Japan launch for Carl's Jr.

Carl's Jr. plans to open franchise stores in Japan as early as 2015.

A launch by the chain in 1989 didn't go off smoothly.

Though McDonald's has struggled in Japan over the last year, Carl's sees an opportunity in the premium burger space.

The restaurant concept is owned by privately-held CKE Restaurant Holdings
