How much training is required?
Bojangles’ proven training program has been imperative in helping us become one of the premier quick service chicken franchises. Because we are absolutely fanatical about our food and the people who love our food, we require that a minimum of five of your operating managers successfully complete 6 weeks of training prior to opening your first two restaurants.
Can I open more than one location?
Yes! Bojangles’ is actively seeking both single unit operators as well as prospective Franchisees with the experience and financial resources to be a multi-unit operator.
Are there different types of Bojangles’ stores?
Bojangles’ has developed approved building plans for a franchisee for freestanding “traditional” restaurants. Bojangles’ does possess some flexibility to work with you to develop a custom design to fit “non-traditional” or “express” venues. All such plans must receive final approval from Bojangles’ prior to beginning construction.
Do you offer site selection services?
Bojangles’ offers consultation and assistance with site selection. You will need to retain the services of a local real estate professional to help identify quality sites, at which point we will assist you in choosing the site(s) we could recommend and would approve through a committee.
Does Bojangles' offer financing?
At this time, Bojangles’ does not offer direct financing for Franchisees. You must have the financial capacity to develop a Bojangles’ restaurant. However, we do maintain relationships with third-party lenders and developers whom we can connect you to.
