Good news, Bo fans! The North Carolina-based fast food chain that distributes homemade cookies that are more delicious than words can capture has announced major expansion plans.

Jeff Rigsby (pictured above), a 20-year-old Bojangles franchise owner, and the fast food company have announced plans to open 45 new locations over the next seven years, according to a press release from the company. Rigsby currently operates 92 locations and the new restaurants are being developed in Rigsby’s core markets including Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, as well as 15 planned Bojangles restaurants in Columbus, Ohio. This is the company’s first outpost in the state of Buckeye.

“”[Rigsby] has been a valued partner of the Bojangles brand for over 20 years and we couldn’t be happier to expand this relationship to 45 new locations, including expanding into a new market for our brand, “said Jose Costa, Bojangles’ chief development officer in the Company press release: “He embodies what it means to proudly represent this beloved chain and we look forward to many more years of success [Rigsby]””

Similarly eager to get the expansion off the ground, Rigsby, who started the fast food chain as an area manager in Greenville, South Carolina, shared a few words: “Over the past 20 years, my partnership with Bojangles has paid off and full of growth, and this important milestone and related investment deal is a perfect indicator of that, “Rigsby said in the same media statement.” I am grateful for what we have achieved together and I look forward to what is to come.

In a recent article published on the Charlotte Observer, Bojangles announced that they also have plans to open their first restaurants in the states of New York and Texas, as well as adding locations in Pennsylvania and Florida. No schedule has been announced for the new restaurants.
