Bojangles’® Targets Northern Expansion into Delaware and Eastern Shore of Maryland
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - May 09, 2017 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Bojangles’, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOJA), the popular, fast-growing restaurant operator and franchisor, is actively searching for qualified, enterprising businesspeople and experienced multi-unit franchise owners to grow the Bojangles’ brand in the Mid-Atlantic region, to include Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
“While Bojangles’ has incredible brand familiarity throughout the Southeast, we find that more and more people across the Mid-Atlantic crave our great tasting, freshly-made food,” said Randy Icard, Bojangles’ Vice President of Franchise Development. “As we plan our next growth phase, we look forward to beginning our search for enthusiastic potential franchisees to lead Bojangles’ expansion into Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland.”
This announcement comes as the company has been actively expanding its footprint to the north, recently signing development agreements to grow the brand in markets such as Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay area, Washington, D.C. and the Lehigh Valley region in Pennsylvania.
The Bojangles’ allure starts with its all-day breakfast, served hot and fresh every day. Since 1977, fans have enjoyed Bojangles’ proprietary, made-from-scratch offerings, featuring a flavor profile unlike anything in the market. The company’s robust, Cajun-inspired menu includes fresh, never frozen, hand-breaded chicken; buttermilk biscuits freshly made every 20 minutes; salads; sandwiches; flavorful fixin’s like green beans and Cajun Pintos, and Legendary Iced Tea®, steeped the old-fashioned way.
While the food is great, so is the brand’s vision. Bojangles’ has invested in the development of a dynamic new restaurant design, which will bring a modern ambiance to complement its freshly-made, high-quality food and restaurant hospitality. Learn more about the new design here.
