The Bojangles’ franchise in metro Augusta will see a boom in 2014.

This year, local franchisee Pat Landon is introducing two new Bojangles’ to the Augusta market, adding a replacement restaurant in North Augusta and renovating his existing fast-food business at 3412 Mike Padgett Highway.

The new North Augusta restaurant is set to open Monday at 1010 Edgefield Road, on the old Huddle House property next to the Wal-Mart Supercenter now under construction, Landon said.

Two additional Bojangles’ will open in mid-July near Augusta Mall at the corner of Wrightsboro and Wylds roads and in early August on an out-parcel at the Aiken Sam’s Club on U.S. Highway 1. Landon said he also will remodel his Mike Padgett Highway restaurant in late 2014.

Each new restaurant will employ about 70 workers, he said.

Landon has operated the local franchise since 2002 and opened a Grovetown Bojangles’ last September. Landon said he expects to open at least two more sites within the next three years.

The area’s other Bojangles’ franchisee, Tim Biakabutuka, plans to add another restaurant near the Evans Wal-Mart in late June to his three stores already open. That restaurant will add about 30 employees.

Bojangles’ was founded in 1977 in Charlotte, N.C., and has nearly 550 restaurants across the Southeast, the Northeast and Honduras.

Don't Be Dissing Fried Chicken

Don't be joking about no fried chicken in Augusta. I don't care if you are Fuzzy Zoeller or Sergio Garcia.

Bojangles fried chicken is my favorite. Their sausage egg and cheese biscuits are out of this world. Their chicken sandwiches are good.

If they want to open a location around the Evans Wal-Mart, how about the defunct Kentucky Fried Chicken location?? The REAL reason that place went out of business is because the guy who ran it admittedly bought/prepared/served inferior chicken pieces! After I ended up paying a couple of bucks for a chicken wing that was, honestly, the size of my bent up little finger, I quit going to the place and told everybody I knew!

"REAL reason that place went out of business is because"

You know, not many things surprise me, especially around this area. But I was absolutely floored that the KFC in Evans went out of business. I would have thought if anything was a guaranteed success in that area it would have been a KFC.

KFC in Evans

I think the visibility of that location coupled with the fact that you had to drive around the mulberry bush to get in and out was part of it. If you didn't know it was there, you'd drive right past it and not really see it. Expensive piece of real estate, for sure. You'd have to sell a BUNCH of chicken to pay for it!

I bet in the end it was Oprah's fault...it was her big idea to give away free chicken.. heh heh
