Construction on the Bojangles' planned for U.S. 220 in Roanoke just south of Outback Steakhouse is expected to begin within two weeks, according to Bojangles' franchisee Stan Seymour.
The restaurant will be constructed on a wooded lot on the northbound side of U.S. 220 at the corner of Old Rocky Mount Road. Seymour, who owns five other chicken restaurants in the area, said the newest Bojangles' should open 150 days after construction begins. That puts the opening sometime in October.
Seymour has said it will cost $1.8 million to build the restaurant.
Seymour bought the land several years ago as a backup location for the Cave Spring Bojangles'. He had a "for sale" sign on the property for some time because he said he was hoping to sell the land at a profit.
When Walmart moved from Hunting Hills Plaza to Clearbrook, Seymour decided to build a restaurant on the plot to take advantage of the traffic going south to Walmart.
