While Bojangles expanded its fast food empire across the south and parts of the Midwest, the closest its gotten to the Garden State is western Pennsylvania. But that's reportedly all about to change, according to Bojangles has set its sights on New Jersey, with plans to open 10 restaurants here.


But this southern chicken 'n biscuits restaurant doesn't seem interested in SOUTH Jersey. Bojangles will establish itself throughout North Jersey (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex and Union counties, reports), and that's a shame for us! So, in that respect, I'll say 'Bo does NOT know best!'

A representative for Bojangles tells, “We are thrilled to be bringing Bojangles to the Garden State and believe there is unlimited potential for the brand in the greater New York metropolitan region.” Well, there's potential in South Jersey, too, Bojangles. Just sayin'. I mean, we'd like to get in on your supposedly legendary iced tea and breakfast biscuits. Come on now! Throw us a (chicken) bone, won't ya?
