It didn’t take Sally long to become a top Biscuit Maker - she’s only been with the company for eight months!
Tony has been with BNE for nine years and has been a Biscuit Maker for eight. He says the key to creating the best Hardee’s biscuits is to “love what you are doing.”
When he’s not making biscuits, Shelton enjoys fishing, cutting grass and helping friends.
“Juanita’s biscuits are magical,” said Region 1 Director of Operations Mike Davenport, “She’s in at 4 a.m. five days a week making magic happen.”
“Sally’s only been with the company eight months and she’s already standing up here,” said John Smith, Region 3 Vice President of Operations. “Sally excels at making biscuits, but she’s ready to jump in and do anything we ask of her.”
Last year, Tony won it all. Tony’s positive attitude, his attention to detail, and his desire to always do things the right way continue to bring him great success.
Shelton has been with BNE for 35 years and a Biscuit Maker for 12 of those. “If you need somebody in your corner, Shelton is your guy,” said Region 4 Director of Operations Jaime Bostic.

BNE Hardee’s Teams Campaign for Veterans, Their Families
ith nearly 150,000 patriotic stars hanging in Boddie-Noell Hardee’s restaurant walls across Kentucky, Virginia, and the Carolinas, the 2019 Stars for Heroes annual fundraising campaign proved the BNE family truly believes in people. During the month-long campaign, customers were encouraged to purchase $1 patriotic star cut-outs with proceeds benefitting The Patriot Foundation – providing funding for children of killed and wounded soldiers, as well as the U.S. Cares and Stand Up and Play Foundations. For their support, customers received a Hardee’s coupon sheet valued at $10 in savings.
The Hardee’s of Celebration Station team raised the most funds within BNE selling 3,998 stars, followed by the Hardee’s of Ravenel selling 3,823, and Hardee’s of Belmont selling 3,570 stars.

Despite Terry’s recent retirement as President of Hardee’s Operations, he explained it was important to him to fulfill his polar plunge promise to the BNE family and Virginia Hardee’s communities. “Four years ago, we set the goal of raising $100,000 for Special Olympics Virginia during our annual campaign,” explained Terry. “We came close in 2017, missing the goal by only $2,500.” Terry recalls several team members with hopes of seeing him take the plunge then, but he recalls telling them, “Not until we reach the goal.” Holding out was just the extra incentive needed. BNE Virginia Hardee’s surpassed their goal one year later in the 2018 campaign, raising $100,000. “Participating in the Polar Plunge was absolutely fantastic but what I find most rewarding was watching our employees and customers work together to meet our goal. It was a true honor to be able to represent them.” “WE BELIEVE IN PEOPLE” 9

Driven to fulfill the company purpose of using our resources to be a positive influence on people’s lives wherever and whenever we can, the inaugural event was developed as part of a campaign focused on providing children opportunities they normally would not experience – such as having their photo taken and visiting with Santa. The event was a magical experience for local children, as they were welcomed into the cheerfully decorated home office to visit with home office
employees dressed as elves, snack on Christmas goodies, and visit with Santa. Each child had their photo taken with jolly ol’ Saint Nicholas himself, known to the BNE family as Software Programmer Don Small, and were given a goodie bag.

“While the Home Office team currently provides support to our local community through many avenues including supporting the United Way, Peacemakers, Special Olympics, our Back to School Drive, and our Senior Citizen Christmas Gift Bag Program, the Home Office Committee felt we needed to do something with children surrounding Christmas,” explained Director of Corporate Support Services Bunn Boddie. The name of the campaign “We Believe in Children” is a direct reflection of BNE’s corporate motto “We Believe in People,” said Bunn. “Our children are the future and by hosting an event where we can provide an experience to children that they may not normally have is something we are proud of.”

ork tends to get a bad rap. That’s probably because it got a whole lot harder in Genesis 3. As a consequence of Adam’s sin, God cursed the ground, “Thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you….by the sweat of your face you shall eat bread.” Even so, work itself is good. It was part of God’s perfect creation, not part of man’s punishment.
You know that feeling of satisfaction that follows a job well done? It’s called pride. And much like work, it tends to get a bad rap. But pride isn’t all bad. The kind that comes before a fall is. But the kind that comes after putting forth your very best effort is good. God Himself experienced that same feeling of satisfaction at the end of day six, when he reflected on His work of creation. And what work was God most proud of? Mankind. God made us to reflect His image. That’s means loving like He does, thinking like He does, and yes, working like He does. Then, at the end of the day, take time to enjoy the fruit of your labor.
