Bojangles strengthens development team with new VP of growth

Patricia Halpin takes up the post as the restaurant chain accelerates its franchise development in target markets

In her role, Patricia Halpin, CFE will lead Bojangles’ aggressive franchise expansion in key regions across the U.S.

With more than 20 years of food service experience, Patricia most recently was head of development for Subway Market Operations (SMO), where she led a team of 25 supporting development for 7,500 restaurants. She was responsible for driving market optimization, franchising, remodels, and new store growth.

Her career successes also span other development roles for several well-known QSR franchise brands, including Baskin’ Robbins and Dunkin’. In her time at Dunkin’, Patricia successfully led franchising efforts in new and existing markets across the U.S. and internationally.

“I’m privileged to join the Bojangles development team and will look to build upon the momentum already established, as we bring Bojangles to key markets across the country,” she said. “I look forward to building relationships with our existing franchisees and adding new operators to our growing brand. We’re eager to expand, and I’m excited to dive in and add value to a number of our strategic initiatives. It’s Bo Time!”

Patricia will report to the brand’s chief development officer Byron Chandler. “Adding Patricia is an important milestone as we continue to build our development team to help grow our brand. One of Bojangles’ greatest assets is our talented roster of team members, and onboarding Patricia exemplifies our commitment to hiring the best team possible,” said Byron. “I’m certain that Patricia will be a wonderful leader and will help us bring our Southern flavor to new and existing markets.”

As Bojangles ramps up development, the brand is reporting an industry-leading $1.9m AUV and offers a strong morning daypart, which attributes to approximately 40 per cent of sales. Additionally, Bojangles provides franchisees with a variety of prototypes to consider and gives robust real estate support to help identify the right prototype for each site.

Bojangles’ franchise opportunities remain in regions across the U.S., including the Southwest, Northeast, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and parts of the Southeast.
