Longtime Bojangles’ franchisee FDY, Inc. opened a second location in The Plaza at East Terminal between Concourses D and E at the airport.
“We’re excited to add another Bojangles’ to Charlotte Douglas International, which is one of the busiest airports in the nation,” said Keith Haywood, interim CEO of FDY, Inc. “Our first Bojangles’ in Concourse B has been a huge success, and we think this one will be equally well-received by airline travelers and Bojangles’ fans who love our delicious food.”
The 1,300-square-foot location will be open from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and will feature in-store dining beginning with breakfast served all day, every day through dinner. It will employ 50 people.
“We’re pleased to work with FDY in bringing another Bojangles’ franchise to the airport,” said Brian Little, head of corporate communications for Bojangles’. “We’ve heard stories of passengers almost missing their flights to get a taste of our real deal Southern flavor, and now there’s one on both sides of the airport. This opening reflects our goal to bring our delicious chicken, biscuits and Legendary Iced Tea® to even more people.”
FDY, Inc. opened its first Bojangles’ franchise at the Charlotte airport during the Spring of 2008 and another Bojangles’ franchise in Washington, DC in 2011.
