ATLANTA, April 1, 2021– Ackerman Retail, a division of Ackerman & Co., has brokered the sale of a 3,587-square-foot Bojangles restaurant in Murphy, N.C. for $2 million. The standalone restaurant has a long-term lease with BOJ of WNC LLC, the country’s largest Bojangles franchisee.

“We’re very pleased to complete the sale of this property on behalf of the seller,” said Sean Patrick, CCIM. “The acquisition of this high-quality asset built in 2014 enables the buyer to capitalize on a long-term lease with a highly successful Bojangles franchisee that runs through 2033, as well as steadily increasing sales and built-in rent escalations. During marketing, we navigated a sale of the business from a smaller franchisee to the largest franchisee operator, BOJ of WNC.”
