Bojangles will be returning to the Orlando area after almost a six-year hiatus


ORLANDO, Fla – Central Floriders will soon have a new fried chicken fast food option when they decide to indulge themselves. Bojangles announced Tuesday that it will be returning to the Orlando area.

The North Carolina-based chain announced that it is partnering with Chaac Foods to open 40 new locations over the next seven years, including 15 in the Orlando area.

The company has not yet announced any specific locations or set a date for the first opening.

Chaac Foods operates several fast food and fast casual restaurants in 12 states. The portfolio includes places like Applebee’s, Panda Express and Pizza Hut.

Currently, the closest Bojangles to Orlando is in Ocala at 4828 SW College Road.

The chicken chain was the last in the Orlando area in 2015. The franchisee closed eight stores in central Florida and left the restaurant business just before Christmas that year.
