Jack Z. Fulk (November 30, 1932 March 30, 2011) was an American businessman who co-founded the Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits fast food restaurant chain in 1977 in Charlotte, North Carolina.[1][2]
Fulk was born to Charles and Lucille Hunter Fulk in Davidson County, North Carolina, on November 30, 1932.
Fulk initially operated a Hardee's franchise in Wilkesboro, North Carolina.[1] While still working with Hardee's, Fulk began experimenting with recipes for biscuits during the mid-1970s.[1][3] In 1977, Fulk and his business partner, Richard Thomas, opened a chicken restaurant that became the first Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits on West Boulevard in Charlotte, North Carolina.[1][3] The first restaurant was a walk-in with no seating,[2] but it specialized in chicken that was spicier than its competitors.[3] Fulk also added his biscuits to the restaurant's menu, which increased increased sales approximately 60%.[3] Fulk and Thomas opended a second Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits in 1978.[3]
Fulk retired from Bojangles in 1985, when the chain had reached 350 locations (there are now more than 500 locations in eleven states, as of 2011).[3] He eventually sold his stake in Bojangles, but continued to operate a franchise in Jonesville, North Carolina.[1]
Jack Fulk, a resident of Charlotte, died on March 30, 2011, at the age of 78.[1]
