BonChon Chicken Bacolod
BonChon Chicken Opens in Bacolod
BonChon Chicken, the well-loved crispy saucy glazed chicken phenomenon is now in Bacolod! It formally opens its doors to Bacolodnons today, Sept. 18, 2015, at the ground floor of the restaurant strip, North Wing, SM City Bacolod.
BonChon, which literally means “my hometown” in Korean, serves their signature Korean-style fried chicken that is super crispy on the outside yet light and non-greasy. But on the inside, it boasts of hot, moist, and juicy meat.
BonChon believes that each person has a unique palate and would want their chicken served their way, so the fried chicken comes with three different sauces — the classic soy garlic, spicy, or honey citrus glaze. You may also ask for a double glazing of your chosen sauce and it is all for free.
BonChon Chicken Origins
From its original home in Seoul, BonChon has opened branches in New York, where its crispy glazed chicken has earned major media and industry accolades. Its similar success in other US cities such as San Francisco, Boston, Virginia, and New Jersey set the stage for the restaurant’s international expansion. Soon the chain grew to Bangkok, Manila, Jakarta, and Singapore.
After four years of operations in the Philippines, BonChon has grown to 90 stores all over the country, including branches in Cebu, Davao, Baguio, General Santos City, Cagayan de Oro, Boracay, and now in Bacolod. The brand was first strengthened in the Manila area, which is the reason why all of the stores there are company-owned. It was only a couple of years ago that they opened the concept of franchising in the provinces.
But aside from their signature, glazed crispy chicken, BonChon gives Bacolodnons the pleasure of savoring other dishes, as pictured below.
BonChon is well on its way to realizing its vision of having a branch in every key city in the Philippines. The management remains steadfast in its commitment to serve fresh, innovative food at reasonable prices, and delivering much value to its clientele without any shortcuts.
