Zaxby's, new Bojangles building on 701 North
A new restaurant is just one of several projects at varying stages of development in northern Whiteville. City Planner Hiram Marziano confirmed Thursday that a Zaxby’s restaurant is planned for the area near the north Whiteville Food Lion shopping center. The parking lot for the restaurant will be built around the extant berm on the south side of the center, and Marziano said the chain’s site plan has been approved.
At the same time, bulldozers are hard at work on the new location for Bojangle’s.
The fast food restaurant will be moving into a larger facility on the location of a former mobile home lot north of the shopping center, beside Whiteville Family Practice.
After several delays, the Sonic restaurant is back on track for reopening as well,Marziano said.
