Bojangles’ across South Carolina raised more than $34,000 for public education during Teacher Appreciation Month in May. Bojangles’ presented a check for funds raised to nonprofit partner South Carolina Future Minds during a special Bojangles’ breakfast in Lexington, South Carolina, this week.
Charlotte, North Carolina–based Bojangles’ may fall into the chicken quick-service category, but as any executive, operator, employee, or loyal fan will tell you, it’s all about the biscuit.
And for good reason: The item is included or featured in nearly 80 of the brand’s menu items, a fact that explains how more than 3 billion biscuits have been served at Bojangles’ since its inception in 1977, says senior vice president of marketing Randy Poindexter.
For the 16th consecutive year, Bojangles’ not only raised funds to send children to the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s (MDA) Camp Bethelwoods, but it also provided campers and volunteers a Bojangles’ lunch of chicken, biscuits, and fixin’s at Camp Bethelwoods in York, South Carolina, on August 6 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Camp Bethelwoods, located at 922 W. Mount Gallant Road in York, provides a magical environment for 6–17-year-olds who are affected with a variety of neuromuscular diseases.
Bojangles’ Restaurants Inc., a fast-growing chicken chain, opened its 600th location, a growth milestone the legacy brand has achieved as it continues to build its market presence primarily in the Southeast.
Bojangles' opened its doors for business at 1836 Tiny Town Road in Clarksville, Tennessee on May 23, 2014.
The new restaurant is owned by Jeff Rigsby and marks the third Bojangles’ location he owns in the Nashville, Tennesse region, joining existing locations at 1765 Madison Street in Clarksville and 246 Indian Lake Boulevard in Hendersonville. In total, Bojangles’ has eight restaurants across the Nashville area.
Bojangles’ announced that with the help of its loyal customers, the company raised a record-breaking $536,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) during its 13th annual Shamrocks Against Dystrophy in-store fundraiser. With the more than a half-million in funds raised, Bojangles’ will send 660 children affected by neuromuscular diseases to MDA summer camp this year.
May is Teacher Appreciation Month in South Carolina, and as the founding sponsor of this important month of recognition, Bojangles’ hosted a Teacher Appreciation Breakfast for the state’s 82 District Teachers of the Year. During this event held at Trinity Cathedral in Columbia, South Carolina, Bojangles’ announced that it has once again partnered with statewide nonprofit South Carolina Future Minds to raise funds to support public education in South Carolina and continue honoring one of the state’s most valuable resources: teachers.
Reigning Masters Champion Bubba Watson stars in the first of a series of TV commercials for Bojangles’ Restaurants, Charlotte. The campaign, by advertising agency Boone Oakley, Charlotte, is intended to build sales of Bojangles’ breakfast meals (available all day). The first spot rolls out this month across Southeastern state markets.
Bojangles’ launched the Bojangles’ Southern 500 Winner’s Circle Sweepstakes, giving racing fans and customers the opportunity to win one of three getaways and $10,000. The sweepstakes celebrating Bojangles’ third year as the title sponsor of the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, South Carolina’s only NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, will give one winner the opportunity to choose a vacation in Honolulu, Las Vegas, or a Caribbean or Alaskan cruise.
For the 13th consecutive year, Bojangles’ is supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) through its Shamrocks Against Dystrophy®in-store fundraiser. Through Sunday, March 16, customers can once again support the organization by purchasing a green shamrock for $1 or a gold shamrock for $5.
