A fried chicken chain is dancing its way into three new locations in the Richmond area, and it’s looking to expand even further.
Redco Properties, a North Carolina company that operates dozens of Bojangles’ Chicken ’n Biscuits franchises in the Mid-Atlantic, last month purchased three sites for new restaurants in Chesterfield, New Kent and Hanover. The company paid a combined $1.68 million for the properties.
Nicki Jassy, a broker with Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer who represents Redco, said the company isn’t stopping there.
“They are looking for more sites,” Jassy said. “They want to expand, and they are looking all over the Richmond market.”’
Jassy said Redco hoped to begin construction within the next three months.
The three properties are 1.22 acres at Bermuda Crossing Shopping Center in Chesterfield, 1.86 acres at Patriots Landing in New Kent and 1.4 acres at Winding Brook near Lewistown Road in Hanover County, an area that has seen some big activity in recent weeks.
Redco already owns four Bojangles’ locations across Richmond.
It built one last year at Rutland Commons in Mechanicsville.
It also has stores at the intersection of South Laburnum Avenue and Nine Mile Road, in Hopewell and in Petersburg.
