Bojangles Features Oakboro in Commercials

In August 2008, the advertising agency for Bojangles came to town. TV commercial producers interviewed a lot of people and captured a lot of images of cars.

Commercials began airing across the Carolinas in January 2009. The first one featured Jake DelHomme and Steve Smith with the Carolina Panthers. Oakboro Cruise-in volunteer Joel Leonard was also in the commercial. He's a tall guy who used to play football - and sometimes sells the 50/50 tickets.
Now, a second commercial is airing with Jerry Crayton, Cruise-in founder and Mayor Joyce Little. The spot opens announcing the Oakboro Cruise-In and shows a lot of cars throughout - and ends with a great daytime shot along Main Street.

We thank Bojangles for coming to our town and for helping us promote what we think is the biggest and best cruise-in anywhere.

So this is supposed to be our Oakboro leaders with our best interests at heart. Sounds like self promotion and pushing their own personal agendas, typical for a small town. Anyone thought of the negatives a chain store brings. Anyone thought of the detrimental impact on our own locally owned restaurants and the 100+ local people this could put out of work. Nope, just gotta have unsweet tea!
