Director of Facilities Management

COMPANY:

The Boddie-Noell story began in Fayetteville, NC in 1962 when Carleton Noell and his two entrepreneurial nephews, Mayo and Nick Boddie, opened one of the first Hardee’s restaurants. At the time, fast food was a relatively new concept, but BNE’s commitment to friendly service and great tasting charbroiled burgers established it as one of the industry’s leaders. Since this humble beginning, BNE has experienced rapid growth and expansion throughout the Carolinas, Virginia, and Kentucky and has maintained a close-knit family culture in which every individual is treated with mutual support and respect as embodied in the company’s purpose statement: “To use the resources of the company to provide opportunities for our people and to be a positive influence on people’s lives wherever and whenever we can.”

Today, BNE, headquartered in Rocky Mount, NC, is a diversified family-owned company. BNE operates more than 345 Hardee’s restaurants and is the popular brand’s largest franchisee. The company’s businesses have also expanded to include BNE Land and Development, a commercial land ventures and resort property development company; Rose Hill Plantation, the Boddie family’s unique working farm and site for weddings and other events; and an additional restaurant concept: the Highway Diner.

BNE currently employs approximately 10,000 people, is considered one of the nation’s leading privately held restaurant companies, and has been ranked among the 70 largest restaurant companies in the US.
