Spread the love


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.

Meanwhile, the company has started acquiring other companies such as Sandy’s and Dee’s Drive-in. In 1981, the Hardees Food Systems was sold to a Canadian Company which is the Imasco Limited. Further down the line, on April 1997, CKE Restaurant Holding purchased Hardee’s from the Imasco Limited making it then a sister company of the Carl’s Jr.

At present, Hardee’s has 2,242 outlets, both company-owned and franchised stores all over the United States and some international locations. Furthermore, Hardee’s have expanded their menu list from only serving burgers and to now serving breakfast to chickens to desserts and more.
