Growing Restaurant Brand Continues Expansion in Alabama, Plans To Enter Mississippi
Bojangles’, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOJA), the popular restaurant chain known for its breakfast served all day, every day, uniquely-seasoned and marinated bone-in chicken, and made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits, today announced that it has signed a new multi-unit development agreement with Angle, Inc. of Gautier, Mississippi.
Angle, Inc. owns and operates multiple businesses in southern Alabama and southeastern Mississippi.
Over the next several years, the new development agreement is anticipated to result in multiple new Bojangles’ restaurant locations in southern Alabama and southeast Mississippi. Expanding its footprint through greater scale in states outside of its core North Carolina and South Carolina markets is a key strategic initiative for Bojangles’. There are currently 32 Bojangles’ restaurants serving many thousands of loyal fans in Alabama.
“We are pleased and excited to welcome Angle, Inc. to our existing group of experienced restaurant operators,” said Bojangles’ President and CEO Clifton Rutledge. “We are very pleased with the growth we are seeing outside our core markets and, as we’ve said before, growth in adjacent markets will be driven by franchisees that have the depth of business experience to help us continue to grow the Bojangles’ brand the right way.”
For nearly 40 years, fans have enjoyed Bojangles’ proprietary, made-from-scratch 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 every twenty minutes, salads, sandwiches, flavorful fixin’s like green beans and Cajun pintos, and Legendary Iced Tea® steeped the old-fashioned way.
Bojangles’, Inc. is a highly differentiated and growing restaurant operator and franchisor dedicated to serving customers high-quality, craveable food made from our Southern recipes. Founded in 1977 in Charlotte, N.C., Bojangles’ serves menu items such as delicious, famous chicken, made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits, flavorful fixin’s and Legendary Iced Tea®.
