SPRING HOPE — Equipment needs are slowing down the opening of Bojangles.

"They're waiting to hear from their construction and operations team before setting a open date," Ethan Vester, president of the Spring Hope Chamber of Commerce, told The Enterprise on Tuesday.

Vester told the town board at its most recent meeting that he spoke with representatives of Tands, the Kinston-based franchise that's opening the Bojangles at the intersection of N.C. 581 and U.S. 64.

Vester told the board that Bojangles was waiting on equipment. He didn't specify if that meant construction equipment or kitchen appliances.

Work is also being done at the site to clear trees for a new Duck Thru, a full service convenience store equipped with a deli or grill, selling Shell gasoline.

Duck Thru has more than 50 locations throughout southside Virginia and northeast North Carolina.

While the grand opening of the Bojangles is stalled, other aspects of the business are proceeding at a good pace.

New employees are being trained at the Bojangles in Nashville, Vestor said.

The restaurant chain already has a website set up for the Spring Hope locations. Job applications can be filled out on the site, https://locations.bojangles.com/nc/spring-hope/1050-s-nc-581.html.

Tands joined Bojangles in 1980 and now operates more than 60 restaurants including locations in Wilson, Nashville and Rocky Mount.

The chamber, celebrating its 85th anniversary, is set for a big year. This October will see the 50th annual Spring Hope National Pumpkin Festival.
