Bojangles (Charlotte, N.C.), a purveyor of Southern-style chicken, biscuits and tea, announced the signing of a 30-unit agreement to bring the concept to Los Angeles for the first time.

The agreement, spearheaded by entrepreneur Lorenzo Boucetta and Poulet Brothers LLC, is expected to introduce Bojangles to Los Angeles County in early 2025.

“From the moment I was first introduced to Bojangles, I knew immediately that this was a brand that I wanted to be a part of. The delicious chicken, biscuits, and breakfast, combined with strong unit economics and unparalleled support made the decision a no-brainer for me,” said Boucetta. “I’ve spent several years in hospitality and real estate development, but my roots have always been ingrained in the restaurant industry. The opportunity to grow Bojangles in California presented itself at the perfect moment, and I am thrilled to bring this iconic brand to the market for the first time.”

Said Bojangles CEO Jose Armario: “Lorenzo’s impressive background in business operations, hospitality and real estate development makes him an ideal partner for us. We are ecstatic to bring Bojangles to Los Angeles residents and look forward to opening our first location in California next year, while anticipating the exciting growth that will follow.”

Founded in 1977, the company has grown to 800-plus locations in 17 states.
