Bojangles' to test delivery

Bojangles' is testing delivery at 10 locations in Charlotte, N.C.

The chain will begin piloting the service either by the end of this year or early next year, the Charlotte Business Journal reports.

In a conference call with investors, CEO Clifton Rutledge says the test will be used to gather data and determine how the chain should best approach delivery in the future.

Bojangles' is hoping delivery will beef up its sales. While the chain saw its total revenue increase by 0.2% to $133.4 million during the third quarter, primarily due to the addition of 50 new restaurants, it experienced a 1.5% decline in franchise comparable restaurant sales and a 3.3% decline in company-operated comparable store sales. Bojangles' says the decline from company-operated restaurants was due to a decrease in transactions counterbalanced by an increase in prices.
