LaFOLLETTE—Bojangles is looking to open a franchise here.
“We hope to have it open by the end of December,” said Michael White, a representative from the Charlotte-based company, at the LaFollette City Council meeting.
The new franchise will be located on Jacksboro Pike across from Murphy’s Express.
Councilmember Stephanie Grimm asked White when the project would begin.
“We’ve already started,” he said.
The Bojangles will employ 40 to 50 people, White said.
“There ain’t a person in this room that doesn’t like chicken,” Mayor Mike Stanfield said.
Bojangles operates about 550 restaurants in 10 states across the southeast. It offers chicken and biscuits and a variety of sandwiches, sides and combinations meals.
