The franchise groups plan to build Bojangles’ restaurants in the Panama
City, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Gainesville, and Daytona Beach markets
over the coming years.
New Bojangles’ franchisee Bo Scallions, LLC plans multiple
locations in the Jacksonville market.
Currently developing the Tallahassee market, JCM Management, LLC
has expanded their franchise agreement to develop restaurants in
Panama City, Fla. and additional areas in Tallahassee.
Bo Benton, Inc. currently operates 11 restaurants in the Myrtle
Beach, South Carolina market. Last year, the group began developing
Florida’s I-75 corridor, from Lake City to Gainesville and Ocala. The
group has now expanded their business relationship with Bojangles’ to
bring a number of restaurants to the greater Daytona Beach area, a new
market for the brand.
Bojangles’ expansion in this region also includes multiple restaurants
planned for the Mobile/Pensacola area, another new market for the brand.
Operated by new Bojangles’ franchisee Angle, Inc., the group plans to
open their first location in Mobile in 2018.
“Each of these development agreements align perfectly with our brand’s
strategy for franchisees to lead expansion into new and adjacent
markets,” said Randy Icard, Bojangles’ Vice President of Franchise
Development. “These existing and new franchise organizations share our
commitment to growing our brand the right way, providing great tasting,
freshly-made food at an exceptional value to thousands of Bojangles’
fans across this region. Additionally, we are pleased to welcome the Bo
Scallions team to our family of franchisees.”
“For nearly 15 years, our franchise group has proudly operated
Bojangles’ locations in the Myrtle Beach area,” said Alan Chestnut,
Operations Partner of Bo Benton, Inc. “We thoroughly believe in the
power of the Bojangles’ brand, the high-quality food and commitment to
growth in new markets. Our group is thrilled to lead the company’s
expansion efforts in the Gainesville and Daytona Beach areas.”
For 40 years, fans have enjoyed Bojangles’ made-from-scratch offerings.
The company’s Cajun-inspired menu includes fresh, never frozen,
hand-breaded chicken; buttermilk biscuits freshly made every 20 minutes;
flavorful fixin’s like green beans and Bojangles’ Cajun Pintos®,
