Iconic Southern fast food chain occupies restaurant space in new commercial real estate construction
(Tallahassee, Fla.) October 19, 2017 — JCM Management Group, LLC and Demetree Real Estate Services worked together to open a second franchise location in Tallahassee for the iconic Southern fast food chain, Bojangles’.
JCM has opened a new Bojangles’ location as a part of retail construction on a 3.48 acre lot near Florida State University at W. Tennessee Street and Ocala Road. This property is one mile from FSU and Tallahassee Community College and four miles from Florida A&M University.
The property is in close proximity to two student housing complexes that are 100 percent leased: The Woodlands (980 student beds) and The Forum (780 student beds). With over 9,885 student beds surrounding the property and direct access from W. Tennessee St., this is expected to be a high traffic location.
Founded in 1977, Bojangles’ is an icon of the south. Bojangles’ fanatics crave the brand’s unique and delicious menu items, including its flavorful, hand-breaded bone-in chicken; hot, fresh buttermilk biscuits, made from scratch every 20 minutes; original fixin’s (sides) and of course, its Legendary Iced Tea®, steeped the old fashioned way. Bojangles’ is also home to all-day breakfast, served hot and fresh every day.
“Our franchise group is thrilled to have opened the doors to our second Bojangles’ location in Tallahassee,” said Danny Clayton, Bojangles’ franchisee. “This property is modern and unique, and you couldn’t ask for a better location for our Bojangles’ restaurant.”
“We're excited to welcome JCM Management Group as our first tenant for this new retail center,” says Rusty Stoeckel, Broker Associate of Demetree Real Estate Services. In addition to Bojangles’ free standing 3,886 square foot restaurant with a drive-thru, the retail center plans include space for up to nine additional tenants. The western end cap will be 3,400 square feet with a 1,500 square foot patio and the eastern end cap will be 4,600 square feet with a 2,800 square foot patio. There will also be two 1,400 square foot spaces and five 1,200 square foot spaces which can be combined as needed.
“We look forward to serving the growing Tallahassee market by providing new retail options for the community,” says Mary Demetree, owner of Demetree Real Estate Services.
