Bojangles, known for its fried chicken and biscuits, is coming to San Antonio. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation shows that Bojangles is looking to build a restaurant at 8610 Potranco Road near Loop 410 on the far West Side.

The new 3,000-square-foot building is estimated to cost $1 million with construction set to start Dec. 1.

The fast food chain, which is found primarily in southeastern states like North Carolina, Alabama and Georgia, first announced a Texas expansion in June 2021 with locations in Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth.

In January, the chain announced it was aiming to establish 100 restaurants in Texas between Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth in the next seven to 10 years. There are currently around 800 Bojangles' restaurants in 14 states. 

Bojangles is partnering with San Antonio-based Copacetic Group LLC to open locations in the Alamo City.

Bojangles' menu features items like chicken sandwiches, all-day breakfast and pimento cheese biscuits. | @shepardgprice
