About Boddie-Noell Enterprises Inc.

Our Purpose:

"To use the resources of our company to provide opportunities for our people and to be a positive influence on people's lives wherever and whenever we can."

Headquartered in Rocky Mount, N.C., Boddie-Noell Enterprises Inc. (BNE) is a diversified, family-owned company. We own and operate restaurants - including more than 345 Hardee’s® restaurants across four states - and develop successful real estate projects.

In some ways BNE hasn’t changed since the day we started business with Hardee’s restaurants back in 1962. Our values and commitment to family are just as strong and evident today as then.

Today we employ close to 10,000 people and are considered one of the nation’s leading privately owned restaurant companies.*

But the answer we give most often, when people ask us who we are, is this: We’re a family. We’re a group of people who enjoy working together. We love helping each other grow and seeing each other succeed. That’s BNE.

"The past 30-plus years have been absolutely wonderful.  The opportunity to work with and learn from so many talented, dedicated and caring people has enriched my life more than I could have imagined."
- Bill Boddie, president and CEO of Boddie-Noell Enterprises
