A study sponsored by CKE brand Hardee’s revealed a correlation between a restaurant’s interior design and its customers’ healthy dining habits.

While the study, “Music & Light,” was conducted at Cornell University’s Food and Brand lab in Ithaca, New York, in 2002, Hardee’s had exclusive use of the findings for 10 years, and it was published by lab director Dr. Brian Wansink in 2012.
