BoCo, LLC is satisfying Robbinsville, North Carolina, residents' craving for Bojangles’ world-famous chicken, made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits, and Legendary Iced Tea with the opening of its restaurant on Tuesday, October 16, 2012.
Bojangles’ attracts customers with its proprietary, made-from-scratch fare, offering a flavor profile unlike anything on the market and breakfast served all day.
The menu features southern classics with Bojangles’ one-of-a kind flavors, including fresh, never frozen, hand-breaded chicken, buttermilk biscuits, sandwiches, flavorful fixin’s, and Legendary Iced Tea steeped the old-fashioned way.
“We are thrilled to open a Bojangles’ restaurant in our hometown of Robbinsville and serve residents of the local community a delicious, satisfying meal,” says Eve Davis Whitaker, co-owner of BoCo, LLC. “Bojangles’ is sure to impress new and longtime fans of the brand, and we look forward to offering the most flavorful chicken and biscuits in town.”
Robbinsville’s Bojangles’ features drive-thru and in-store dining beginning with breakfast and continuing through dinner late into the evening.
Spanning 3,800 square feet, the location carries on the Bojangles’ warm, family-friendly tradition in a spacious environment. The restaurant can seat up to 78 guests and offers free WiFi, as well as two flat-screen televisions.
The unique interior and exterior design enhancements reflect Bojangles’ shift towards fast-casual dining, blending quick service with a casual-dining atmosphere.
The new restaurant also significantly contributes to the local economic landscape through investment dollars, construction projects, and job creation, employing approximately 35 local residents.
“We feel strongly about doing our part to help our hometown of Robbinsville grow and to create jobs and career opportunities for local residents,” Whitaker adds.
This is the first restaurant under the BoCo, LLC ownership group, comprised of Eve Whitaker; her parents, Tom and Kaye Davis; and brothers, Tommy Davis and Stuart Davis.
In addition to owning a Bojangles’ restaurant, the Davis family co-owns an Ace Hardware franchise with two other families in Robbinsville, which they have operated for the past 37 years.
Whitaker’s father, Tom, previously owned a set of Ford dealerships in the area as well. The Davis family is also very active in the local community.
