Bojangles Plans First Locations in Arizona as Part of Westward Expansion

by Katie Lee

Charlotte, N.C. — Bojangles has signed a multi-unit development agreement that will bring 20 new restaurants to Phoenix, marking the next chapter of the brand’s expansion West and its first locations in the state of Arizona.

The growth will be led by operators LVP Restaurant Group, LLC, an entity of LV Petroleum, in partnership with Kingsbarn Realty Capital, serving as real estate developer. This agreement is an extension of the group’s partnership with Bojangles, signing a multi-unit development agreement last year to bring 20 first-to-market restaurants to Las Vegas, and 10 non-traditional units in TravelCenters of America locations across the West.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership with LVP and Kingsbarn as we continue to grow Bojangles outside of our core in the Southeast. They have proven to be strong operators, have a deep understanding of their markets and share our commitment to bringing Bojangles West,” says Jim Cannon, chief development officer of Bojangles.

Last year, Bojangles announced the launch of its expansion strategy, including a streamlined menu, new building design and new staffing model across new and existing markets. This systemwide change was implemented to simplify operations and enhance the guest experience. The brand has implemented this new strategy within several restaurants across the U.S. — most recently in Ohio, Texas and Florida, among others.

Founded in 1977 in Charlotte, N.C., Bojangles® serves made-from-scratch biscuit breakfast sandwiches, hand-breaded chicken, flavorful fixins (sides) and Legendary Iced Tea®. Currently, Bojangles has more than 800 systemwide restaurants in 17 states.
