Former Popeyes Executives Acquire Seven Existing Bojangles Restaurants and Develop Additional 11 in Western Georgia
Bojangles, one of the nation’s leading restaurant franchises famous for its chicken and biscuits, announced today the signing of a franchisee agreement with newly formed franchise group Cedartown Chicken, LLC (“Cedartown”), led by restaurant development industry veteran Greg Vojnovic and a team of former Popeye’s executives.
Under the agreement, Cedartown has acquired seven existing Bojangles locations in western Georgia from Robinson Holdings, a former franchisee. In addition to the acquisition of the restaurants, Cedartown has signed an agreement with Bojangles to develop 11 new restaurants in the same area.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Cedartown to the Bojangles family,” said Jose Costa, chief growth officer for Bojangles. “This group knows the QSR business, knows chicken and knows development. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with them across Georgia and portions of Alabama, as well as many additional markets.”
In 2021 alone, the brand has signed franchisee agreements to open more than 100 stores in target markets. Signed deals this year include an expansion agreement with long time franchisee Jeff Rigsby to open 45 new stores, including 15 in the new market of Columbus, Ohio, a deal with Chaac Foods Restaurants to open 40 new stores, with 15 in Orlando, Florida, and an agreement with two new franchisees in Dallas and Houston.
