Bojangles, known for its delightful and special fried chicken, has chosen Frisco for their new venture according to a Dallas Morning News article from June 6 which reports,
“The North Carolina-based company, beloved for its bone-in fried chicken, dirty rice and sweet tea, announced last year that it would expand to Texas with a mix of franchise and corporate-owned stores.
Marco Acevedo, Bojangles’ market director for Texas, said in an interview Monday afternoon that the company is also looking at McKinney, Prosper and Denton for new locations, which will be a mix of company and franchise-owned stores.
Part of Bojangles’ allure, since it opened in 1977, is its all-day breakfast, which includes the Bo-berry Biscuit, a blueberry infused biscuit topped with sweet icing.
Other menu favorites include the Cajun chicken biscuits and biscuits and cream gravy.”
However, Bojangles will be taking the extra mile as they are already setting up for two different locations around the city according to a Community Impact article from June 7. They say,
“We are ecstatic about bringing Bojangles to Texas,” Senior Director of Communications Stacey McCray said.
Bojangles’ first location in the state will be located at 1631 US 380, Frisco, according to McCray. The location is slated to open by the end of the year in the Frisco Crossing development on US 380. Bojangles joins restaurants, such as Chipotle, Torchy’s Tacos and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, in the development, according to a flier from Venture Commercial, the real estate broker for the property.
The second location in Texas will be located at 2821 Eldorado Parkway, Frisco. The location is slated to open in early 2023 in West Frisco, according to McCray. According to a permit registered with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, construction of the restaurant will cost approximately $900,000 and will be 2,989 square feet.”
Amazingly, despite having two branches setting up in Frisco at the same time, Bojangles is already setting a same target date next year for both of the locations.
