Get ready for Cajun fried chicken and buttermilk biscuits. The fast-food chain Bojangles is set to open 10 new locations in North Jersey.
Quick-service restaurant moguls Dipak Patel and Agam Vaidya, who operate Burger Kings and other fast-food restaurants in the area, have penned a deal with Bojangles to bring the Southern chain to the Northeast.
There’s no word yet on the exact locations, but Bojangles will be built in Middlesex, Essex, Union, Bergen and Hudson counties.
“There’s a lot of demand for Bojangles in the Northeast, and this became more evident when we brought our food truck to Times Square last year to launch our all-new Bo’s Chicken Sandwich,” said Jose Costa, chief growth officer at Bojangles.
