Apostrophes are keeping me up at night

So, Carl’s Jr.

I don’t get it. The way it’s written, Carl owns the Jr. So, is the Jr. the restaurant? Like, did Carl once own a chain of large restaurants, and the fast food grease joint is a smaller version? A Jr. version, if you will?

Is the restaurant the Jr. or is Carl the Jr.? If it’s Carl, shouldn’t it be Carl Jr.’s?

I can’t sleep until I solve this mystery.

Anyone? Anyone?
