July 6, 1977 was obviously a beautiful day in Charlotte. No, we don’t know what the weather was like. Doesn’t much matter. What does matter is that on that glorious day, the Lord saw fit to give us Bojangles’, as they held a grand opening for the first location in North Carolina.
The good folks at the North Carolina Museum of History shared out some social media posts to mark the special occasion.
Ever since that spectacular day, Bojangles has blessed North Carolina with a grand opening seemingly every week, and wonderfully syrupy, sweet iced tea, delicious chicken, and of course … the biscuits.
We could write a sonnet about how good Bo-Berry Biscuits alone are. For now though, we’ll just munch on our four-piece Supremes and be thankful for the goodness that is Bojangles.

According to the Bojangles corporate website, the restaurant began in 1977 by Jack Fulk and Richard Thomas.
“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: distinctive flavor profile; wholesome, high-quality products made from scratch; and a fun, festive restaurant design with fast, friendly service. Tands, Inc. joined the Bojangles’® team in 1980 and has been committed to those same high standards.”
