Durham, N.C. - Jan. 24, 2012— Tri-Arc Food Systems is satisfying Durham residents’ craving for Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits with the opening of its newest location at 176 Stratford Lakes Drive.

Spanning 3,886 square feet, the new location carries on the Bojangles’ warm, family-friendly tradition in a spacious environment.
“We are thrilled to open a new restaurant in Durham and to offer a dining experience unlike any other restaurant in the quick-serve chicken category,” said Tommy Haddock, president of Tri-Arc Food Systems. “In addition to serving Bojangles’ distinctive array of chicken dishes, fresh buttermilk biscuits and fixin’s, our service standards will win over our guests from the moment they walk in the store or visit our drive-thru.”

We look forward to continuing to make a positive mark everywhere we go.”
