The franchise group headed up by former Popeye’s executive has acquired seven existing restaurants, with plans to develop more.

The newly formed Cedartown Restaurants LLC, headed up by former Popeye’s executive Greg Vojnovic has signed an agreement with Bojangles to acquire seven existing locations from the previous owner, Robinson Holdings. There are plans to develop a further 11 locations in the same area.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Cedartown to the Bojangles family,” said Jose Costa, chief growth officer for Bojangles.

“This group knows the QSR business, knows chicken and knows development. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with them across Georgia and portions of Alabama, as well as many additional markets.”

Vojnovic has extensive experience in the industry as the chief development officer at Popeye’s, Arby’s and Inspire Brands.

“I’m thrilled to finally say, it’s Bo Time for Cedartown,” said Vojnovic, CEO of the newly formed company.

“Chicken has become the country’s fastest-growing protein and our team is excited to leverage this trend to grow the Bojangles brand. We are so impressed with Bojangles’ concept and strategic growth plans.

“Bojangles is loved by its fans throughout the Southeast, and we’re excited to grow its footprint in Georgia and other markets.”

Vojnovic and his team have already scoured potential sites across Western Georgia and Eastern Alabama with plans to open the first new location in the summer of 2022.

2021 has been a busy year for Bojangles, having already signed deals to open over 100 new locations.
