History

Hardee’s is famous for its juicy charbroiled burger across the US and other countries. The first store has opened its doors for its customers on September 3, 1960, at Greenville, North Carolina. And ever since, it had brought stiff competition to American burger joints. However, somewhere along the long history of Hardee’s nutrition, the original founder who was Mr. Wilber Hardee had passed the ownership of the burger joint to his partners, Leonard Rawls and James Carlson Gardner over a game of poker. From there, the two gentlemen went on opening the store for franchising which has turned out to be successful.
