Love’s announced today that it will add 40 Bojangles restaurants at some of its locations in Illinois, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Mississippi. The Charlotte, North Carolina based restaurant chain is known for its Canju-spiced chicken and biscuits and other Southern favorites like sweet potato pie, biscuits and gravy, and dirty rice.

“We know that Bojangles’ fans are frequently on the road for work, managing family activities or getting ready for tailgating adventures,” said Jose Costa, chief development officer for Bojangles’. “Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, we want to be able to combine a great Southern meal with a fast and easy way to refuel and get back on the road. Love’s is the perfect partner to deliver this experience, with our similar commitments to industry-leading operations, excellent customer service, and quality facilities.”

The locations will be managed by a dedicated Bojangles’-trained Love’s team, according to a statement from the two companies.

“We are excited to offer our customers another delicious and fresh food option while they’re on the road,” said Joe Cotton, director of restaurant services for Love’s. “Bringing Bojangles’ to our home state of Oklahoma along with Arkansas, Mississippi, and Illinois is something we’re happy to be a part of.”

Founded in 1977 in Charlotte, Bojangles now has 745 restaurants.
