Popular chicken fast food chain Bojangles is considering locating in Midtown.
“Bojangles has submitted a subdivision and site plan for Midtown for Nov. 28,” said Harriman Building Inspector Maria Nelson.
The Harriman Regional Planning Commission will be in special-called meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 5 p.m. to consider the plan.
Nelson said the restaurant is considering locating the fast food chain next to Physicians Plaza on Hwy. 70 in Midtown.
Harriman Mayor Chris Mason said he spoke recently at the Knoxville TVA Credit Union groundbreaking about the continued growth of business in the area and how he hopes it will continue.
Bojangles is just another step in the direction of having a booming retail area in the city.
Right now, the only other fast-food restaurant off Interstate 40’s Exit 350 there is a Subway with a drive-through lane.
“Hopefully we’ll see more of this in the next couple of years,” Mason said.
The company’s website said the restaurant was started in 1977.
The restaurant, known for its chicken and biscuits, also has zesty menu items including dirty rice and Cajun pinto beans.
Bojangle’s website said the restaurants serves breakfast all day every day.
