BoJangles’ opening soon

MILLEDGEVILLE — The City of Milledgeville released great business growth news Wednesday.

The soon-to-be Food Depot location, slated to open by the fall in the old Winn Dixie Marketplace building at 1850 N. Columbia St., will have a neighbor named BoJangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits, according to Milledgeville City Manager Barry Jarrett.

“It will be a free standing building in that area,” Jarrett said. “They are ambitious in what they want to do. I sure hope they can make what they want to.”

The city manager said developer Toks Achebe plans on starting in July and opening by late August.

“They estimate hiring close to 100 employees,” Jarrett added.

Achebe owns and operates McDonald's and BoJangles’ franchises in Atlanta and the Carolinas.

According to the company website, BoJangles' began in 1977 as the dream of operators Jack Fulk and Richard Thomas. They saw an opportunity to develop a quick-service restaurant chain based on three attributes: a distinctive flavor profile; wholesome, high-quality products made from scratch; and a fun, festive restaurant design with fast, friendly service.

BoJangles' core menu is “distinctive, flavorful chicken made with a special blend of seasonings and served with hot, fresh buttermilk biscuits and one-of-a-kind fixin's.”

The restaurant serves “the best breakfast in the industry all day, every day.”
