CKE Restaurants has expanded its offering from The Coca-Cola Co to include the drinks firm's Vitaminwater portfolio.

The California-headquartered restaurant company said yesterday (24 November) that it will offer Vitaminwater xxx, revive and essential at all of its 1,212 Carl's Jr. locations.

The portfolio will be available in 16oz bottles priced in the region of US$1.69.

Both Carl's Jr. and Vitaminwater are featured in a digital video on their respective Facebook pages, www.facebook.com/carlsjr and www.facebook.com/vitaminwater. The video, a spoof of oldies music compilation CDs usually advertised on television, features Carl's Jr. mascot Happy Star and a bottle of Vitaminwater listening to love songs such as "Truly, Madly, Beefy" and "Drink Me Up".

CKE's partnership with Coca-Cola has run since 1981.
