Chicken Chains Make Their Way And Expand In Town
There's a chicken showdown about to unfold in Marion County as two fast food chains plan to open shop in Ocala. Bojangles', a chicken chain founded in Charlotte, North Carolina in the late 70s is planning to open its first Marion county store near Market Street at Heath Brook on State Road 200 later this year. Down the road, Zaxby's will open its seventh Marion County store at State Road 200 and SW 66th Street. The chicken chain has 4 Alachua County locations while Alachua County's first Bojangles' is scheduled to open in April, where Cody's Roadhouse once stood, just east of SW 34th Street.
