10-Year Bojangles’ Restaurant Operator Opens 23rd Location



BOJ of WNC, LLC is satisfying Seneca residents’ craving for Bojangles’ “Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits” with the opening today of its newest location at 1011 Highway 123 Bypass in Seneca.

The new Bojangles’ features drive-thru and in-store dining beginning with breakfast and continuing through dinner late into the evening. Spanning more than 3,800 square feet, the new location carries on Bojangles’ warm, family-friendly tradition in a spacious environment.

“We are thrilled to become part of the Seneca community and to offer a dining experience unlike any other restaurant in the quick-serve chicken category,” said 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.”

Seneca’s Bojangles’ can seat up to 78 guests. The unique interior and exterior design enhancements reflect Bojangles’ shift towards fast casual dining, blending quick-service with a casual dining atmosphere. Plus, at the drive-thru, Bojangles’ is setting the industry standard, turning orders routinely in less than a minute.

“Bojangles’ is a strong franchise system, and we are proud to represent the brand in local communities throughout the region,” added Rigsby. “Each new restaurant we open not only gives our loyal fans a great meal option, but also affects the community’s local economic landscape through job creation and construction projects. We look forward to continuing to make a positive mark everywhere we go.”

Beyond service touches, Bojangles’ attracts customers with its proprietary, made-from-scratch menu items offering a flavor profile unlike anything in the market. Meal options are available all day, including breakfast at all hours. More than 30 local residents are employed at the new Seneca restaurant.

For a decade, Rigsby has grown BOJ of WNC, LLC into one of Bojangles’ largest franchise operators in the system.
