Bojangles’ recently announced the opening of its first full-service college location at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG).

The historic move is through a partnership with UNCG Dining Services, which is operated by Chartwells, a division of Compass Group USA Inc.

Located on the corner of Kenilworth and Spring Garden, the new Bojangles’ is situated in the Jefferson Suites, the newest and greenest residence hall on the campus. Spanning 3,400 square feet, the new full-service restaurant is located in a LEED-Certified building and carries on the Bojangles’ warm, friendly tradition in a spacious environment. It is the first Bojangles’ Chartwells will operate.

“We are proud to be working together with Chartwells to offer Bojangles' famous chicken, biscuits and ice tea directly to UNCG, and we are proud of this additional connection to the city of Greensboro and the University,” says Eric Newman, executive vice president for Bojangles’ Restaurants Inc.

Greensboro’s new Bojangles’ can seat up to 60 guests. The unique interior and exterior design enhancements reflect Bojangles’ shift towards fast casual dining, blending quick-service with a casual dining atmosphere. More than 40 local residents and students are employed at the new restaurant.

"When Jefferson Suites was being designed, we directly engaged the students to find out exactly what restaurant they wanted on our campus,” says Scott Milman, director of auxiliary services for the University of North Carolina at Greensboro."UNCG Dining Services worked with the Residence Hall Association (RHA) and Student Government Association (SGA) to develop a list of potential concepts. Taking the feedback from the meetings with these student groups, a list of possible restaurants was compiled, and we worked with RHA and SGA to have the students vote for their favorite. In the end, Bojangles’ is in Jefferson Suites because UNCG students wanted Bojangles’ in Jefferson Suites."

The new UNCG location joins 52 other Bojangles’ restaurants throughout the Triad region.
