June 12, 2012 // Franchising.com // Laurens, S.C. - “BO Time” returns as Bojangles’ reopens its Laurens-area restaurant located at 302 Hillcrest Drive. Bojangles’ was joined by the Laurens County Chamber of Commerce at a ribbon cutting ceremony earlier this morning, celebrating the reopening of the Laurens location.

Like all Bojangles’ restaurants, the Hillcrest Drive location will continue to prepare all its made-from-scratch proprietary menu items all day, seven days a week. The restaurant offers southern classics with Bojangles’ one-of-a kind flavors, including its fresh, never frozen hand-breaded chicken, buttermilk biscuits and biscuit sandwiches, flavorful fixin’s and iced tea steeped the old-fashioned way.
