Bojangles’ Sets Up Shop in Arden, North Carolina
BOJ of WNC LLC is satisfying Arden, North Carolina residents' craving for Bojangles’ with the opening of its restaurant at 320 Airport Road on Saturday, December 1, 2012.
Bojangles’ attracts customers with its proprietary, made-from-scratch fare, offering a flavor profile unlike anything in 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 become part of the Arden community and to offer a dining experience unlike any other restaurant in the quick-serve chicken category,” says Jeff Rigsby, president of BOJ of WNC LLC. “In addition to serving Bojangles’ distinctive array of chicken dishes, fresh buttermilk biscuits, and fixin’s, our service standards will win over our guests from the moment they walk in the store or visit our drive-thru.”
Arden’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 Wi-Fi as well as 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 40 local residents.
“We feel strongly about doing our part to help create jobs and career opportunities for local residents,” adds Rigsby.
For more than a decade, Rigsby has grown BOJ of WNC LLC into one of Bojangles’ largest franchise operators in the system. This opening marks the 25th restaurant under the BOJ of WNC LLC ownership group. The company has opened three Bojangles’ restaurants this year and has plans to open two more within the next two weeks.
