Restaurant franchisee Henson Moore and his business partners will next Monday open the doors to their second Bojangles’ location — and the sixth in Middle Tennessee — this one on Old Hickory Boulevard in Nipper's Corner. Moore, a former attorney, opened the North Carolina-based chain's first area location on Charlotte Pike in 2005.
“We are thrilled to expand our presence in the Nashville community,” said Moore. “As we’ve successfully grown our first location, we knew it was time to bring Bojangles’ to a wider audience. The people in Nashville have been very good to our business.”
The new 2,400-square-foot restaurant includes a drive-thru and can seat up to 72 people. It will employ about 65 workers.
Southern Land announced today that Charming Charlie, the Houston-based fashion jewelry and accessory store, will open this fall a retail location that will serve as an anchor at Southside at McEwen in Franklin.
In addition, home decor and interior design center Pierce & Co. will open at Southside this summer. Terms of the leases are not being disclosed.
Charming Charlie, which will occupy 5,000 square feet of space, first received recognition in 2004 with a concept involving a storybook of accessories created through color coordinating trends.
Pierce & Co. founder Jonathan Pierce gained national recognition as the lead designer in CMT Ultimate Country Home series as well as HGTV’s Interior’s Inc. The company is Nashville-based.
The two retailers will join, among others, lululemon, Mountain High Outfitters, Posh and Whole Foods. Southside at McEwen was completed in 2012 and sits adjacent to the office building Southern Land sold last year for $40 million.
