Bojangles’ is closing its location at 1402 West Trade St. on Saturday and will reopen in a new building at the same spot next spring.

The 3,900 square-foot location will reflect the Charlotte-based restaurant chain’s new design meant to “enhance the customer experience,” the company said. New features include a “Biscuit Theater” where customers can watch biscuits being made, free Wi-Fi, charging stations and new furniture.

Bojangles’ first announced its plans to redesign its restaurants in November. The new concept will also include “a distinctive, contemporary exterior” featuring materials like brick and tile, as well as steel canopies, and bold graphics, Bojangles’ has said.

The first location where the new concept was launched was at a Bojangles’ restaurant in Greenville, which is expected to open in early 2017.

Three Bojangles’ restaurants will be remodeled in Charlotte next year: At Billy Graham Parkway near Charlotte-Douglas International Airport; South Tryon Street near Arrowood Road; and Steele Creek Road near Interstate 485 in southwest Charlotte.

“There is a lot of Bojangles’ history at that Trade Street location, because it’s actually one of the oldest operating stores in our system. So it’s exciting and important for us to give our loyal customers there the best Bojangles’ we could possibly build,” said Randy Icard, Bojangles’ vice president of construction and development.
