Cam McRae, owner and president of the Kinston-based Tands Inc. that operates the largest number of franchised Bojanglesâ€™ restaurants for the Charlotte-based fast food company, opened his 50th store in Grantsboro on Tuesday.
The restaurant is the first Bojanglesâ€™ in Pamlico County, and is the newest addition to Tands Inc.â€™s 31-county territory in Eastern North Carolina. McRae also has several stores in Virginia.
Randy Kibler, president and chief executive officer of the private parent company Bojanglesâ€™ Inc. that is known for its Cajun fried chicken and biscuits, said most of the companyâ€™s franchisees have between one and seven restaurants, while operating 50 is â€œreally abnormal.â€
McRae is the first franchisee to hit the 50-restaurant mark.
â€œFor somebody to build a company from one â€” like Cam opened the first store himself, and then he built the company to where it has 50 â€” thatâ€™s an incredible accomplishment in the restaurant business,â€ Kibler said.
