The last time I was at a Bojangles was in February in the exurbs of Raleigh, N.C., on a Sunday. Since Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, Bojangles' drive-through queue was long, packed with biscuit-seeking after-churchgoers. In the Carolinas, in the heart of Bojangles country, this is not an uncommon occurrence. On Thursday, Bojangles opened in […]
