Anderson Community Gets Early Holiday Present - A New Bojangles'
December 13, 2011 // Franchising.com // Anderson, S.C. - This morning the Anderson community received an early holiday gift – another Bojangles’ location to serve world-famous chicken, made-from-scratch biscuits and Legendary Iced Tea™. The new location in Anderson is located at 2041 East Greenville Street. Those who are already fans of Bojangles’ have eagerly anticipated the restaurant’s arrival, and those trying it for the first time are sure to soon crave the unique flavor of Bojangles’ menu items.
Like all Bojangles’ restaurants, the location on East Greenville Street will serve everything made fresh all day, seven days a week. The restaurant will offer southern classics with Bojangles’ one-of-a kind flavor including its hand-breaded chicken, buttermilk biscuits and biscuit sandwiches, delicious fixin’s and freshly-steeped iced tea. In addition to individual orders for every meal of the day, Bojangles’ also prepares family-sized meals.
The Holiday Family Variety Feast, a customer favorite this time of year, includes eight pieces of Bojangles’ flavorful chicken, 12 boneless Chicken Supremes® eight made-from-scratch biscuits, a half-gallon of Bojangles’ Legendary Iced Tea and your choice of three large fixin’s, such as Cajun Pintos®, Dirty Rice®, mac n’ cheese, green beans and Seasoned Fries™. The Holiday Family Variety Feast is ideal for families on the go that want to celebrate the season with a delicious meal any day of the week.
Bojangles’ new company-owned restaurant in Anderson also represents an economic investment in the area. The average investment made by the company for new locations is $1.7 million, and each new store creates an average of 25-35 new jobs. The new Bojangles’ will also affect the local economy through increased tax revenues and by using local companies for recurring needs such as landscaping and repairs.
The existing Anderson location at 2102 N Main Street, will continue to serve the community as well. This franchise operated location is owned and operated by E.O. Enterprises. E.O. Enterprises was Bojangles’ first franchise entity who began serving Bojangles’ famous chicken ‘n biscuits over 30 years ago.
“Bojangles’ is one of the fastest-growing restaurant brands in the country, and we are committed to continuing our aggressive expansion,” said Bojangles’ President and CEO Randy Kibler. “Bojangles’ is proud to further invest in the Anderson area, and we look forward to meeting new customers and continuing our relationship with this great community.”
