Is Bojangles Opening a Location in Poughkeepsie, NY?
Could the Hudson Valley be home to one of the first Bojangles locations in New York? Maybe so!

We've reached out to Bojangle's corporate offices to get confirmation and hopefully a possible opening date. In the meantime, we'll be quietly daydreaming about those buttery biscuits, spicy Cajun chicken, dirty rice, and those Bo-Berry Biscuits.
While we wait for confirmation and if you're craving fried chicken, Popeye's Louisianna Chicken is breaking ground on its latest location in Wappingers Falls which was 2 years in the making.
