Hardee’s may not be in Farmville for approximately six months, according to Town Manager Gerald Spates who spoke to the owner about the completion of the project.

The site of the restaurant will be located at the intersection of South Main Street and Milnwood Road.

“They’re not very far along in the process,” said town spokeswoman Kate Pickett Eggleston in September regarding the Hardee’s.

Hardee’s will join a bevy of new or reopened businesses in Farmville, including a Pizza World, Huddle House and soon-to-be-opened Little Caesars.

The Hotel Weyanoke’s renovation and restoration project in Farmville is one that’s slated to create 76 new jobs and spur more than $7 million for the economy of the town. The hotel is set to feature four unique food and beverage venues including: Sassafras, a bakery and market; Humble Pie, an artisanal pizza grill and market featuring locally-sourced organic ingredients and family recipes; Campagna, an Italian trattoria and tasting room; and The Bridge, a rooftop refreshment retreat.

Food taxes bring in a large amount of revenue for the town.

“It is projected that it will bring in $2,660,000 in 2017-18,” Eggleston said in a previous interview regarding the town budget.
