More travelers throughout the Southeast and South Central regions of the U.S. can now enjoy Bojangles’, the chicken and biscuits restaurant. The national franchise development agreement includes 40 new Bojangles’ restaurants inside Love’s Travel Stops across four new states for the iconic brand.
The locations will be managed by a dedicated Bojangles’-trained Love’s team. Through this new partnership, Bojangles’ will expand its footprint into four new states including Illinois, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Mississippi.
“We know that Bojangles’ fans are frequently on the road for work, managing family activities or getting ready for tailgating adventures,” said Jose Costa, chief development officer for Bojangles’. “Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, we want to be able to combine a great Southern meal with a fast and easy way to refuel and get back on the road. Love’s is the perfect partner to deliver this experience, with our similar commitments to industry-leading operations, excellent customer service and quality facilities.”
“We are excited to offer our customers another delicious and fresh food option while they’re on the road,” said Joe Cotton, director of restaurant services for Love’s. “Bringing Bojangles’ to our home state of Oklahoma along with Arkansas, Mississippi and Illinois is something we’re happy to be a part of.”
