One Farmville business manager has been honored by their larger national chain. Latonya Dungee of the Hardees at 1521 S. Main Street in Farmville recently won the Founders Award, the top award given out by the largest Hardees franchisee in the country. The Founders Award is presented annually to the company’s top restaurant general managers.

The individuals and restaurants represent the best among the 330 Hardee’s restaurants operated by the company across four states. The winners were selected on an established set of criteria for operational excellence in 2023. The annual award is given in honor of the company’s three founders, who opened the group’s first Hardee’s in 1962.

The annual recognition and celebration of the winners was held at the company’s Rose Hill Conference Center near Nashville, North Carolina. Winning general managers received a cash award and a plaque. Gifts were also awarded earlier to their restaurant teams for their 2023 performance.
