WILLMAR — A Marshall company is bringing Hardee’s restaurant back to Willmar.

Har-Mar Foods Inc. has purchased the land and building of the former Wendy’s restaurant and former Hoja Asian restaurant and is remodeling the exterior and interior of the structure at 1704 First St. S. in time for a June 16 opening.

The former Willmar Hardee’s, located in a free-standing building just west of the Kandi Mall on First Street South, closed 14 to 15 years ago for a number of reasons.
