Bojangles’, Inc. announced that it has signed a new multi-unit development agreement with VABO, Inc. of Wilmington, North Carolina.

According to the agreement, VABO, Inc. is scheduled to open four new Bojangles’ restaurants over the next four years to potentially include locations in Chesapeake, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach, Virginia. The ownership group has significant retail experience as they currently own and operate several quick service restaurants in South Carolina and Georgia.

“We are pleased to welcome the VABO, Inc. group to the Bojangles’ family,” says Randy Icard, Bojangles’ vice president of franchise development. “Bojangles’ is a long-time franchisor with significant long-term growth opportunity for strategic franchise development. We are actively seeking well qualified owner-operators like the team at VABO, Inc. and look forward to working with them to continue growing the brand in Virginia.”

For nearly 40 years, fans have enjoyed Bojangles’ proprietary products that offer a flavor profile unlike anything in the market. The menu features southern classics with Bojangles’ one-of-a-kind flavors, including fresh, never frozen, hand-breaded bone-in chicken, buttermilk biscuits made from scratch every twenty minutes, salads, sandwiches, flavorful fixin’s like green beans and Bojangles’ Cajun Pintos, and Legendary Iced Tea steeped the old-fashioned way.

Bojangles’ also recently unveiled its new restaurant design concept aimed at propelling the fast-growing chain to its next stage of success. The first restaurant built using the new design opened in Greenville, South Carolina, on January 11, 2017. Many of the design elements being tested in the new concept will also be incorporated into several upcoming restaurant remodels.
