Popular fried chicken chain expands in New Jersey
Bojangles, the popular Southern fried chicken restaurant chain, has announced a major expansion in New Jersey with 10 new locations planned. The new Bojangles sites to be built will be in Middlesex, Essex, Union, Bergen and Hudson counties.
The chain was founded in North Carolina in the 70s and focused primarily on the southeastern United States until recently. Now they’re growing, and his top 10 restaurants in New Jersey are part of that growth. 35 additional new Bojangles are in preparation for 2022.
Jose Costa, Chief Growth Officer of Bojangles, said in a statement, “We have an exciting future ahead of us in New Jersey and we look forward to expanding our footprint throughout the region.” All ten locations will be owned and operated by the same franchisee, Dipak Patel & Agam Vaidya, who operate a total of 56 different franchises, including Burger Kings, in the North East.
Bojangles offers a variety of prototypes for franchisees to consider when building their portfolio, including a prototype showcasing the “Biscuit Theatre,” which allows customers to witness the making of Bojangles’ beloved buttermilk cookies. the brand. The chain is known for its cookies and its main offering, Cajun-spiced fried chicken.
Opening dates for the new Bojangles have not been announced.
Another chicken favorite, Chick-Fil-A, opened two new Garden State stores last week, with one in Freehold and one in Hackensack. This brings the total number of Chick-fil-A restaurants in New Jersey to 55.
Bojangles and Chick-fil-A both have a ways to go to catch Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen; there are 88 in New Jersey. KFC has 56 Garden State stores.
