April 26, 2017 – CHARLOTTE, N.C.–Today, Bojangles’, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOJA), the popular, fast-growing restaurant operator and franchisor, announced a multi-unit development agreement with new franchisee MSR Restaurants, LLC of Mitchellville, Maryland.
The development agreement is anticipated to result in multiple new Bojangles’ restaurants in the Washington, D.C. metro area over the next several years. The franchise group is owned and operated by Baryalay Razi, who has more than 20 years of experience in the quick service restaurant industry.
“We are pleased to welcome MSR Restaurants, LLC to the Bojangles’ family of franchisees,” said Randy Icard, Bojangles’ Vice President of Franchise Development. “We are confident that MSR Restaurants, LLC is the right franchise group to align with as we move forward with our strategic growth and development plans. We continue to actively search for successful, enthusiastic business leaders, like the MSR Restaurants team, to increase our brand presence in the Mid-Atlantic region.”
The company has been actively expanding its footprint, recently signing agreements to bring Bojangles’ into Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley region and Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay area.
Additionally, Bojangles’ has recently refranchised its Maryland restaurants in New Carrollton, Hillcrest Heights, Landover, Upper Marlboro and Oxon Hill, which are now independently owned and operated by MSR Restaurants, LLC.
Since 1977, fans have enjoyed Bojangles’ made-from-scratch offerings. The company’s Cajun-inspired menu includes fresh, never frozen, hand-breaded chicken; buttermilk biscuits freshly made every 20 minutes; flavorful fixin’s like green beans and Cajun Pintos, and Legendary Iced Tea®.
While the food is great, so is the brand’s vision. Bojangles’ has invested in the development of a dynamic new restaurant design, which will bring a modern ambiance to complement its freshly-made, high-quality food and restaurant hospitality. Learn more about the new design here.
