Hardee's Packaging - 1973

    Newer Older

    Here's a beautiful assortment of Hardee's restaurant food packaging from 1973 -- soda cups, coffee cup with handle, steak sandwich box, burger wrappers, take-out sacks, fry wrapper and box -- plus some awesome turnover pie boxes!

    I would love to have one of those pie boxes.

      Funky logo, I dig it!! A steak sandwich? Where are those today. :)

      [:::] Jenn -- Probably replaced with tofu veggie sandwich. (Thumbs down!)

      Steak sandwiches at a fast food place in 1973? that's pretty ahead of it's time!

      Certainly an eye catching logo!

      I LOVE this all. Especially that, I guess it's a kids cup, with the thief and the cowboy chasing him illustrated on it. Wow!!

      I have one of those kids cups with the thief and cowboy chasing him.

      [:::] CheshireCat -- I agree. I believe Burger King did a steak sandwich later, maybe late '70s to early '80s. Love that box!

      [:::] SpacePotato -- Certainly could have rivaled the Golden Arches. I wish this logo was still in use.

      [:::] Jason -- If Hardee's had been in California in the early '70s, you might have had some of these in that fabulous Munktiki collection. -- Yes those are their old mascots Sheriff Gilbert Giddyup (our hero) and Speedy McGreedy (hamburger rustler). Good times!

      [:::] Slade -- Yes, I've seen that cup in your photo stream. I'd love to get one someday! Got any extras? :-)

      [:::] Retro-Dad -- Good observation. You are correct.

      You never see the paper cup with handle anymore. Companies are probably afraid it'll fail and spill hot coffee into someone's lap again.

      [:::] Everyone -- Put on your fry chef hats and join in the fun at a new Flickr group Hardee's Charco-Broiled Memorial [1960-1997] -- a look back at the classic Hardee's.

      [:::] BCanada -- True. That lady at McDonald's ruined it for everyone.

      I loved Hardee's

      [:::] HSH -- Good stuff. We often stopped at Hardee's on road trips since we didn't have one in my home town.
