Restaurant gets a Saturday morning start back to business, grand opening celebration coming on Thursday

Just a few days over a hoped for deadline to get back open, the brand new Bojangle’s in Cedartown is now serving up their famous chicken and biscuits again.

The morning commute for local lovers of breakfast from Bojangles got to get back on the drive thru line on Saturday morning over the weekend when the restaurant reopened after a month bring closed.

“We’d been in a smaller store for a number of years,” said store owner Mitch Abney during an invite-only preview event on Wednesday last week. “We just outgrew the size of our store, and we needed to double our size.”

The new store comes with a complete new layout for the dining room, a whole new kitchen and equipment at the prototype-design for Bojangle’s.

“I like the layout, I believe we’re going to be better on service and improve on product quality,” Abney said. “It’s just a nice environment.”

The old store had been at the North Main Street location for 37 years.

It was closed and demolished in August to make way for the new Bojangle’s parking lot.

The Abney family will be gathering with Cedartown and Polk County business and government officials on Thursday morning for a grand opening ceremony at 9 a.m., which was announced this morning.

Despite a few odds and ends that needed to be fixed before they opened over the weekend, Abney said that all worked out well.

“We’re thankful for Cedartown and Polk County being so good to us over the years,” he said.
