Bojangles’ at 900 S. Buncombe Road will open Monday at 5 a.m. It’s the newest brand franchise for local restaurateurs Allen and Lee Johnston, of Chix and Bix LLC.

A grand opening will be celebrated Wednesday at 11 a.m. with Mayor Rick Danner, other dignitaries and “Big Bo”, Bojangles’ mascot attending the ribbon cutting.

Bojangles’ sits on the corner of Hammett Bridge Road and S. Buncombe, in a fast-growing community served by Riverside Middle and Riverside High School.

About 50 employees will be employed at the restaurant. Call 864-968-8108 for hiring information.

The first 100 dine-in guests on Wednesday will receive a $5 gift card and other prizes will be awarded throughout the day. Bojangles’ marketers spent the past two days at Riverside passing out free Legendary Iced Tea vouchers.

“We are thrilled to continue to grow our business in the Greer community,” said Allen Johnston. “Bojangles’ is dedicated to honoring southern recipes through a new generation of unique flavors for family and friends who desire the simple goodness of a hometown experience.”

The new restaurant features drive-thru and in-store dining beginning with breakfast and continuing through dinner late into the evening. It will be open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

The 3,500-square foot restaurant seats up to 70 guests and will have Wi-Fi, flat screen televisions and a first of its kind newly designed digital menu boards.

This will be the fourth Bojangles’ restaurant that Chix and Bix owns and operates in the Greenville-Spartanburg area, joining existing locations in Duncan, Lyman and Greenville.

Chix and Bix plans to open three additional locations throughout the region within the next year, including one on Highway 101 in Greer at the entrance to the BMW plant and near a future development that will include a Bass Pro Shop and one on Highway 29 in Spartanburg by the new Upward Star Center.

The Johnstons are also involved with The Butcher The Baker companies who own and operate eight Fuddruckers Restaurants throughout the Southeast.

Bojangles’, founded in Charlotte, has 600 locations in 11 states, mostly southeastern, and Washington, D.C. Technomic ranked Bojangles’ No. 1 in 2013 for growth in the chicken category, QSR Magazine recognized the restaurant in its 2013 list of Top 10 Franchise Opportunities, Forbes listed Bojangles’ as one of the top 12 Best Fast-Food Franchises to Own, and the company ranked in the Top Five for food by Zagat among large fast food chains. The Wall Street Journal has named Bojangles’ among its 25 Franchise High Performers.
