— After months of worry and speculation, some employees of Hardee's are going home without jobs.

Late Tuesday afternoon, CKE Restaurants finalized its bid to take over the fast food chain. Moments later, employees left the building, many carrying boxes of office supplies.

More than 300 people currently work at the Rocky Mount office. A press conference is scheduled Wednesday morning to shed new light on just how many people will be affected by this first round of layoffs.
