Bojangles to close all company-owned stores Monday to give employees ‘well-deserved break’

ATLANTA — Fried chicken restaurant chain Bojangles announced that it would be closing all of its company-owned stores on Monday, Aug. 30, and Monday, Sept. 13, “to give around 8,000 crew members and managers a well-deserved break.”

The closure impacts six stores across Georgia, most of which are in metro Atlanta. The stores will close at their normal time Sunday night and won’t reopen until their regular time Tuesday morning.

“We appreciate everything our dedicated team has done for Bojangles this past year,” Bojangles CEO Jose Armario said. “From navigating a global pandemic to adjusting to new safety measures to picking up shifts for those unable to come in for work, we’ve asked, and they’ve delivered. But this hasn’t been easy, and we know many people are physically and emotionally drained, so we hope these extra two days off will provide rest and refreshment.”


Bojangles said the move comes in “response to industrywide labor shortages and other stresses put on its employees who’ve worked hard through the pandemic.”

The company said it would be rolling out additional benefits soon “to further support the health and well-being of all its employees.”
