Bojangles’ opened a new restaurant in Morganton today, Tuesday, Oct. 5 at 1200 Burkemont Ave. Customers who are already fans of Bojangles’ world-famous chicken, made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits and legendary iced tea have eagerly anticipated the restaurant’s arrival. Those in the Morganton area trying Bojangles’ for the first time are in store for a product and brand they will soon crave.
The new Burkemont Avenue Bojangles’ will serve all of its menu items made fresh all day, seven days a week. They will serve southern classics with Bojangles’ one-of-a kind flavors, including its World Famous chicken, made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits, chicken sandwiches, flavorful fixin’s and freshly-steeped legendary iced tea. In addition to individual orders, Bojangles’ also prepares family-sized meals, including the eight-piece Tailgate Special with eight pieces of flavorful chicken, four made-from-scratch biscuits, choice of two large fixin’s, including Cajun Pintos™, Dirty Rice™, mac n’ cheese, green beans and seasoned fries and one-half gallon of Bojangles’ legendary iced tea.
Along with serving exceptional food, Bojangles’ is also committed to serving the community by supporting causes like the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Since Bojangles’ began working with MDA 12 years ago, the company has supported breakthrough research and other needs by raising more than $1.2 million.
Bojangles’ new company-owned restaurant in Morganton also represents an economic investment in the area. The average investment made by the company for new locations is $1.7 million, and each new store creates an average of 25-35 new jobs. The new Bojangles’ will also affect the local economy through increased tax revenues and by using local companies for recurring needs such as landscaping and repairs.
