Five Hardee’s Restaurants Operated by Boddie-Noell Win National Operational Excellence Award

ROCKY MOUNT, NC (June 18, 2015) – Five Hardee’s® restaurants owned and operated by Boddie-Noell Enterprises earned the 2015 Operational Excellence Award from Hardee’s’ parent company for outstanding franchisee performance over the past year.

In reaching the achievement, these five Hardee’s locations were among only eight Hardee’s franchise locations across the U.S. to receive the annual award from CKE Restaurants. One of Boddie-Noell’s winning restaurants is located in Madison, N.C. and the other four are in Virginia – in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Courtland and Waverly.

The Operational Excellence Award is based on three specific guidelines: an individual restaurant’s rated performance on quality assurance audits, its score on an operational assessment and no more than one guest complaint per month.

“We’re very proud of these five Hardee’s locations. They’ve demonstrated that each of these restaurant teams has the focus and commitment to be the best in their business,” said Terry Lewis, president of Hardee’s Restaurant Operations for Boddie-Noell.

Boddie-Noell is the largest Hardee’s franchise operator in the U.S. with 335 locations across four states. The awards were presented at a special awards banquet for Hardee’s franchise operators.
