Bojangles' Boasts Top Five in Zagat’s Survey

Bojangles’, a Southern culinary staple known for its world-famous chicken, made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits, and Legendary Iced Tea, recently ranked in the top five in the large chain restaurant category for food in Zagat’s 2012 Survey of Favorite Fast-Food chains. Zagat is the leading global restaurant review organization and its annual survey was based on more than 10,500 diners in categories such as taste, décor, and services. 

“We’re honored and excited to be recognized by such a highly-respected organization like Zagat,” says Eric Newman, executive vice president and general counsel for Bojangles’ Restaurants Inc. "It’s fair to say that for 35 years Bojangles’ has always been all about the food—flavor, uniqueness, and freshness. Only at Bojangles’ can you find the original made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits, made fresh every 20 minutes all day, breakfast that never ends, served with hand-breaded chicken, brewed and steeped ice tea, and dirty rice, every batch made up fresh. That’s why Bojangles’ has the most loyal fan base in the business.”
 
With more than 525 restaurants in 10 states, Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits is one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the country. As a regional brand, Bojangles’ same store sales results have outperformed the broader quick service restaurant industry for over the past nine years, and the chain continues to experience higher growth rates than its national competitors.
