Hardee's History

Wilbur Hardee opened his first restaurant in Greenville, North Carolina in 1960.

More restaurants were opened quickly through franchising and, on a smaller scale, acquiring other restaurant chains.

Hardee’s Restaurant served distinctive burger items, including the Huskee, a hamburger for 15 cents, a cheeseburger for 20 cents, fries, and milkshakes.

In the 1970’s Hardee’s expanded to Germany and Austria.

In the 1980’s the company had over 4,000 locations in the United States.

In the late 1980’s Hardee’s was bought by Imasco and the new management made decisions that had negative affects.

Ten years later, Hardee’s was down to less than 2,000 locations.

In 1997 the chain was bought by CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Carl’s Jr.

Today Hardee’s has 1,900 locations in 30 states, mostly in the Midwest and Southeast.  About 475 of the restaurants are operated by the company, while the rest are franchised.

I just got back from the Hardee’s in Dothan Al on South Oates st, first the guy at the drivethru was high as hell he couldn’t hide it at all he could barely talk just mumble. I feel sick to my stomach while typing this, I got a brown bag special with a spicy chicken and double cheeseburger well my double cheeseburgers is raw meat in the middle I took pictures if corporate would like to see what I was served. Beyond disgusted and sick feeling right now!!!

I live in Hollins, Va. I wasn’t going to say anything but after thinking about it, I need to inform somebody of the horrible treatment I received at the Hollins Hardee’s. I used the drive thru to order. The signs in the menu board were fallen or missing. It was hard to read them. When I went to order my drink I could not read the sign. I wanted the lemonade…I couldn’t read that it was strawberry. The clerk fussed with me about it but we finally got it. When I pulled up the two black women were making a joke about me and my stupidity cause I couldn’t order right. It was about 1 pm. I felt humiliated because they were on the other side of the building behind the service counter. It was loud enough everyone could hear. I drove away in tears. I will never go to that Hardee’s again.

I would like to say there is a young lady that works at hardees in statesboro GA her name is Michelle she is a very good worker she tries to get everyone’s food out as quickly as she can an I go through drive every morning she is very clean an she makes sure to ask if I need anything before letting me go every time I would like to say I appreciate her.


Carrie Smith April 6, 2017 at 8:42 am

This company is a joke!!! Had an employee who was being downgraded all over the internet and would come into work and the same people would come into work and cause problems!!! She got fired for it!!! I will make sure nobody I know returns to this company!!!

My family loves hardees breakfast and it has become a regular tradition that once a week normally on Saturday we will have hardees breakfast. Every single time we have gone the workers have been unnecessarily rude and snappy we normally just brush it off because we know how much it sucks working in fast food. But this morning I can not believe these workers are allowed to treat their customers this way and still have a job. I pulled up to the drive thru speaker at 10:58 and tried to order breakfast and yes I realize that breakfast stops at 11 so I was partially expecting to be told that breakfast was over but for the cashier to yell at me through the speaker and say ” MA’AM BREAKFAST IS OVER! IT IS 10:58 BREAKFAST IS OVER!!” At that moment I had to drive away without responding to the truly disrespectful and hateful way this woman spoke to me. There is no reason to treat a customer this way. And I will be letting everyone I know know how much Hardee’s “values” the hard earned money their customers hand them. Thank you for curing the little bit I tolerated this restaurant for my family. And since the advertised time is 11 but it truly is a few minutes before or whenever drive thru cashier feels she is Iredell of it I will let your other customers know as well.

What the heck is going on with Hardee’s 38 minutes in the drive thru. I waited this time to make sure it wasn’t me being impatient. Cars behind me customers yelling and some driving off. I notice an employee using her hands (no gloves) moving fries around on a tray. I’ve been a long time Hardee’s customer since the 70’s. It has never ever been this terrible. You are losing customers. I also heard two men coming from the inside complaining about the slow service inside. I taught customer service for 19 years I’m for hire. Please get Hardee’s back to what it use to be. Do an undercover investigation and you will see for yourself. The store is in Rock Hill S.C. on 2165 Mana Ct.

I went to the hardees yesturday on the Boulevard in Colonial Heights VA and when i got home i bite into the burger and it was so hard and old i almost hurt my tooth. I literally spit it out. Then i drove there to tell the staff and they didnt care! No apology, nothing. They were the rudest place i have ever been to. They replaced the food but the guy seemed like he was acting weird like they messed with my food so i didnt eat it. What a waste of money. This place needs to be shut down. I will NEVER go to this place again!


Lee March 18, 2017 at 6:28 am

Burnt chicken quesidilla with very LITTLE chicken? Thanks Hardee’s. Will never go back to Hardee’s whose drive thru sucks and yet, my food was burnt!!!!


Spencer Briscoe March 16, 2017 at 10:44 pm

I work at the Hardees in conway, ar and I mainly work dinner and late night shift. I come into an uncleaned working environment from Morning and midshift. When I started working here I never had this problem until a few months ago and it has progressively gotten worse. I know we are supposed to work as a team throughout the day and clean during every shift, but that isn’t the case. If I’m coming off harsh Im sorry. If you have any questions please contact me at 501-908-XXXX.


Jessica gray March 7, 2017 at 1:09 am

I work for hardees and have been sexually harassed by my boss since my 1st wk. My managers gf is my supervisor an she’s aware of his actions. She’s openly hostile to me and called me a Punta (whore) just this evening. After sabotaging my shift. I can’t deal with much more and need help.


Carrie Long February 26, 2017 at 1:53 pm

Stop in our local Hardees in Carthage Tennessee last night and received the worst ever. The Lady at the drive thru was rude and the one who was supposed to be the manager was worse. They even told me if I did not like it I could leave. Then when I said I wanted to talk to the managers the one lady said she was the manager and if I did not leave she was going to call the cops.
I loved this Hardees up to this point and have never had a problem with them. I don’t know if they just didn’t want to do there job or what. But if they keep talking to people like that People will stop eating there again.
My number is 615-281-XXXX and cell is 865-399-XXXX.

Hello, I’m a former employee of Hardees. I’m writing in regards to my past w2s. Im currently talking to a tax lawyer, and he is requesting that I get all of my past w2s. Please respond with my w2s, or other information on how I can obtain them.

My question is why would hardees district managers take their general managers out for Christmas dinner and not invite their spouses. ..very hurtful and thoughtless on hardees…aren’t the spouses important also for the amount of hours they’re without their significant other.just hurtful they don’t get to enjoyed the also…shame on hardees


Dawn November 9, 2016 at 3:55 pm

I got a $20 bill from the ATM and went straight to Hardees. Got change for $10. Told them I gave them $20. Refused to give me change. Called the local district manager Brandon McCann. Promised a $20 Hardees gift card. Nothing. Called. Promised again. Nothing. Six weeks and NOTHING. Called corporate. Very disappointed in the Indianapolis ownership of this franchise. Wasting my time. I am positive it was a $20 bill. It had to be.


DEBORAH McCall November 2, 2016 at 6:30 pm

To Whom It May Concern:

I don’t really have a complaint I just want to know why you discontinued your Pretzel Breakfast Sandwich. That was one of the best sandwiches you ever had. I went to my local Hardee’s this morning and when I ordered it they told me that it had been discontinued as of yesterday which was 8/23/16. The employee that waited on me said that I was not the only one asking for this sandwich. Please let me know if you are planning to bring it back in the near future.

I, along with countless other women, find your commercials depicting women in provocative clothing and poses quite offensive. I don’t know any woman who dresses or poses like that while eating a burger. I know sex sells and that Hardee’s is probably desperate to boost their sales since they lag behind most fast food restaurants – but really!!!! Is your marketing department not professional and talented enough to come up with any better marketing strategy?


James dooley June 18, 2016 at 3:01 pm

Your manager Debbie and one of your cooks named Taylor at the Hardee’s in redbank Lexington SC were making sexual comments and jokes and made a penis out of the bread batter and Debbie was acting like she was sucking it it was very disgusting and made.me feel offended and made me never want to eat there again

I want to tell who ever is in charge of Hardee`s commercials that as a woman and a Mother as well as a Grandmother I find your use of women offensive I will not ever take my family to Hardees ever because of them , I find them distasteful and nasty , so need I ask who you are reaching with them , no I think not , my grands ask me why are those ladies eating on a car and what are they wearing ? That Sir has nothing to do with food .If you should have any thing you would like to ask me just feel free to , 803-775-xxxx , I live in South Carolina , Sumter again you have lost women in putting these kinds of commercials on tv , Shame on whoever is in charge .


Kathy Scott April 21, 2015 at 10:30 am

I totally agree……….. Hardee’s commercials are disgusting! I hope others who agree will let Hardee’s know how they feel.
