A prominent restaurant trade publication* ranked us among the 70 largest restaurant companies in the U.S., quite an achievement considering our humble beginnings.

Boddie-Noell has been an integral part of the Hardee’s restaurant business (www.hardees.com) since the brand began 50 years ago. We opened our first Hardee’s in 1962, and today we are the largest Hardee’s franchise operator in the United States with just under 350 restaurants in four states.
