Midtown’s Only Church’s Is Gone; Bojangles Coming Soon?
When they cover up the sign, I think it’s safe to say the mini Food Court on 8th Avenue btw. 44+45th is gone for good. So, say goodbye to Midtown’s only Church’s Fried Chicken. Thankfully we still have Popeye’s and a few other good options in the area… plus if you noticed in yesterday’s profile, there is a rumor going around that Bojangles is looking to expand to New York City (with a reported 41 new stores in 2009.) I contacted the corporate office, and their response is after the jump.
We have had a number of conversations with several qualified NY restaurant groups but as of yet, have not reached any formal agreements with anyone. I wish I had some good news for you now but I will keep you in the loop at the appropriate time.
And that would be some good news… not just because I love spicy fried chicken and biscuits, but it would pave the way for a Popeye’s vs. Bojangles Fried Chicken Off!
