Bojangles’® History

Bojangles’® Restaurants began as the dream of Jack Fulk and Richard Thomas, two veteran restaurant operators who predicted rising consumer demand for good food served in a quickservice environment. They based their concept on three attributes: distinctive flavor, high-quality products made-from-scratch, and a festive restaurant design with friendly service. And in 1977, their dream became a reality in the form of the first Bojangles’® restaurant in Charlotte, NC.




Steven Waugh

Director of Bojangles'® Operations

Steve joined the Clipper Team in July of 2016 to spearhead the start of the Bojangles’® Franchise Division. He opened the company’s first Bojangles’® in Cleveland Georgia in February 2017, and is currently working on a second location.

He is a graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education. Upon graduation, he had gone to work for several prestigious country clubs and restaurants in New Jersey as a chef, as Food and Beverage Director. Prior to coming on board with Clipper, Steve spent the last 10 years working for the Neiman Marcus restaurant division where he could apply his love of food, and customer service with this retail giant.

In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, rescuing animals, going to the gym and spending as much time as he can with his wife and son.

When asked what his favorite part about working at Bojangles’® is he responded with, “The team. As cliché as it sounds, it’s definitely more of a family feeling and everyone just likes to have a great time while working.”

Josh’s favorite memory to date was the scavenger hunt and pizza part that the managers hosted for the Bojangles’® crew during training leading up to the Grand Opening. He said, “It was a lot of fun and a great experience for the whole team!”
