Bojangles grand opening in 1977 has paved the way for biscuit and chicken goodness for years.

July 6, 1977 was obviously a beautiful day in Charlotte, North Carolina. No, we don’t know what the weather was like. Doesn’t much matter.¬†What does matter is that on that glorious day, the Lord saw fit to give us Bojangles’, as the first location opened in Charlotte.

The good folks at the North Carolina Museum of History shared out some social media posts to mark the special occasion.

Ever since that spectacular day, the Carolinas have been blessed with wonderfully syrupy, sweet iced tea, delicious chicken, and of course … the biscuits.

We could write a sonnet about how good Bo-Berry Biscuits alone are. For now though, we’ll just munch on our four-piece supremes and be thankful for the goodness that is Bojangles’.
