The Bojangles’ made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuit, made hot and fresh every 20 minutes, is iconic across the Southeast. The biscuit is so important to Bojangles’ that each year, Bojangles’ franchisee Acorn Food Group hosts its own internal biscuit-making competition, the Master Biscuit Maker Challenge.
Acorn Food Group recently announced the winners of their Master Biscuit Maker Challenge:
·1st Place: Gabby Sosa, Towne Lake Bojangles’ (2072 Eagle Drive, Woodstock)
·2nd Place: Darryl Johnson, Hickory Flat Bojangles’ (3010 East Cherokee Drive, Canton)
·3rd Place: Marion Sykes, Canton Bojangles’ (1665 Ball Ground Highway, Canton)
“We are very proud of all of our menu items at Bojangles’, but for us, it always starts with the biscuit,” said Owner and Operator of Acorn Food Group, Kristal Beaver. “It is always our goal to make sure when customers visit any of our restaurants, they get the very best biscuit all day, every day. We value the hard work of our team members, and we’re so pleased to recognize Gabby as the winner of this prestigious award. We’re proud to call her our Master Biscuit Maker Champion.”
As Acorn Food Group’s champion, Gabby will take home a cash prize and other accolades, including the coveted Master Biscuit Maker apron.
Acorn Food Group’s Master Biscuit Maker finalists were first required to take a written exam on the proprietary Bojangles’ biscuit-making process. Then, team members prepared a batch of biscuits that adhere to Bojangles’ strict specifications, including the company’s signature 48-step process. Judges from the franchise group visited their four locations to grade each biscuit maker’s biscuits on a variety of factors, including appearance, color, and of course, taste.
