Bojangles’ to Offer To-Go Only Options in All Restaurants
March 18, 2020 // Franchising.com // To support local communities’ efforts to control the spread of Coronavirus, Bojangles’ will temporarily close dining rooms in all its restaurants and instead offer drive-thru service, takeout and delivery where available. The change will take effect immediately.
“The health and well-being of our team members and customers is our top priority, so to do our part in encouraging social distancing, we believe offering these to-go options is the right thing to do,” said Jose Armario, Bojangles’ chief executive officer. “We’re taking extensive steps to ensure consumer safety and welcome all customers to enjoy our delicious Southern food through our drive-thru, takeout and delivery.”
Most stores will continue to operate on a normal schedule with some flexibility for individual franchise operators who deem it necessary to adjust hours to support team members and customers effectively.
In addition to closing its dining rooms, Bojangles’ has taken even more steps to ensure the well-being of its team members and customers including:
- Reinforcing Standard Operating Procedures on restaurant cleanliness, including thorough handwashing, extensive sanitation procedures and prohibiting sick employees from reporting for work
- Ensuring stores are stocked with appropriate cleaning supplies
- Requiring all restaurant crew members to wear gloves
Bojangles’ continues to closely monitor developments and updated information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and public health agencies, and will announce further operational changes should they become necessary.
“These are challenging times for our nation and the communities we serve, and we appreciate the continued patience and support of our Bojangles’ fans as we work through this together,” said Armario.
