Bojangles to Close For Two Mondays to Give Staff a 'Well-Deserved Break'
Bojangles will close all stores for two Mondays to give staff a "well-deserved break" following the challenges the restaurant industry has been facing during the pandemic, the company said.
Bojangles will close August 30 and September 13 to allow 8,000 staff members and managers time off.

"We appreciate everything our dedicated team has done for Bojangles this past year," Bojangles CEO Jose Armario said.
"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."
"We apologize for any inconvenience this creates for our customers, but we hope they'll stop by Tuesday through Sunday, and all other Mondays to be greeted with the same Southern hospitality and smiles we're known for -- perhaps even bigger after a day off," Armario said.
