A long awaited Bojangles restaurant is taking another step towards becoming reality this week. Construction equipment has arrived at the proposed location on S. Poplar Street and equipment could be seen removing asphalt and other debris on Tuesday.

A search of the Bojangles company website also shows six (6) jobs listed for Elizabethtown, NC. Those positions include full-time and part-time positions. To view the job postings and to apply, go to https://bojangles.jobs.net/en-US/search?facetcountry=us&facetcitystate=elizabethtown,nc.

Representatives with Bojangles have completed their “due diligence phase of their lease”. Due diligence is a real estate term meaning the company can use the time period to review documents, perform any necessary calculations, inspect the property and review any other information pertinent to the purchase or lease.

“The construction equipment has arrived,” said David Clark of Clark Brothers Inc.

Workers and equipment could be seen on Tuesday making preliminary preparations at the site for work to begin. The new facility will be built on the lot that once housed Cape Fear Bar-B-Que and Chicken at 330 S. Poplar Street in Elizabethtown. The building that housed the bar-b-que and chicken restaurant was torn down to make way for a new facility.

No date has been announced for a groundbreaking ceremony.

BladenOnline.com reached out to the Bojangles corporation but a message left for representatives was not returned as of press time.
