CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Bojangles is looking to give some of its staff members a break after what they say has been a “challenging year and a half for the restaurant industry.”
Company-owned stores will be closed on Monday, August 30, and September 13 to give nearly 8,000 crew members and managers a break.
Affected stores will close at their regular times the Sunday prior and reopen at their regular times the following Tuesday.
Local stores set to close:
- 2508 Ashley Phosphate, North Charleston
- 740 Folly Road, Charleston
- 431A 1/2 St. James Ave., Goose Creek
- 121 Main Road, John’s Island
- 3655 Ladson Road, Ladson
- 444 N. Highway 52, Moncks Corner
- 1644 Hwy 17 North, Mount Pleasant
- 5490 North Rhett Avenue, North Charleston
- 1221 N. Main Street, Summerville
“We appreciate everything our dedicated team has done for Bojangles this past year,” said Bojangles CEO Jose Armario. “From navigating a global pandemic to adjusting to new safety measures to picking up shifts for those unable to come in for work, we’ve asked, and they’ve delivered. But this hasn’t been easy, and we know many people are physically and emotionally drained, so we hope these extra two days off will provide rest and refreshment.”
Bojangles said the reason for the break is due to an industrywide labor shortage and other stresses put on its employees who have worked hard through the pandemic.
The company will roll out additional benefits soon to support the health and well-being of its employees.
They apologized for any inconvenience the closure creates for customers.
