SPRING HOPE — Passersby can almost smell the Cajun fried chicken.

“We will hopefully be eating biscuits together in September,” said Town Manager Jae Kim. 

The Bojangles being built at the intersection of N.C. 581 and U.S. 64 is part of the Kinston franchise company Tands, which joined Bojangles in 1980. Tands operates more than 60 Bojangles restaurants including the ones in Wilson, Nashville and Rocky Mount.

The project, which includes the restaurant, a convenience store and another shop, is on schedule for an early fall opening.

Tands purchased the property in 2007, but plans stalled during the Great Recession of 2008.  

The company submitted plans to the town of Spring Hope last year, then began removing lumber and received permits from the N.C. Division of Water Quality for sewer expansion in October.

Visible work being done this week includes utility installation and paving of the parking lot.

State transportation officials are determining whether the speed limit on N.C. 581 in front of the new Bojangles should be reduced from 55 to 35 mph with an added turning lane.

The popular Cajun-style quick-service restaurants have been in business since 1977.
