History

A Story Worth Telling

Our story is one of good food, great people and exponential growth. It dates back to 1979 when our Founder and CEO Jeff Rigsby, then a teenager, first started in the restaurant industry. Drawn to the team atmosphere, Jeff advanced through the ranks of a national chain restaurant before joining Bojangles in 1994. Always entrepreneurial in spirit, Jeff fulfilled a lifelong dream in 2001 when he purchased six Bojangles restaurants in the Asheville, NC area. From there, it was off to the races. The last two decades have been spent perfecting operations, developing teams, adding locations and expanding into new markets. Today, BOJ of WNC is the nation’s largest franchisee of Bojangles restaurants with nearly 100 locations.

BOJ of WNC is a family-owned business. When you join our team, you’re becoming part of a family that genuinely cares about your future.
