HiFive Chicken, a 24-hour fast food chain that started in 2016, is coming to Langley.

The local franchise will serve fried and roast chicken in its 1,335 square foot space at C115 20727 Willoughby Town Center Dr.

Although the exact date is unknown, Darryl Chandra, director of franchise development, said Langley residents can expect the opening to be sometime in May.

The Langley site will hire 20 staff for various roles. Residents can expect regular spicy fried chicken options as well as the restaurant chain‘s signature roast chicken. Additionally, options for appetizers and sides will also be available, Chandra said.

The company will offer four to six “limited time” products per year and will also test a breakfast menu at the Langley site, Chandra explained.

The company sources locally raised chickens and serves fresh food without added hormones or steroids, he explained.

“We are thrilled to bring our brand to the Langley market. We want to share with the rest of British Columbia what our customers in the Vancouver and Burnaby markets have experienced over the past few years,” said Mono Moitra, president of the company.

First launched in Vancouver, the chain already has four branches. Moitra said his team has signed real estate commitments to open at least six more locations in British Columbia.

“We started with one location in Vancouver in 2016, and it’s thanks to our loyal customers and our highly motivated service team that we’ve been able to open three more corporate locations. We want to share this brand with franchisees who share the same vision and desire to serve great chicken,” said Moitra.

While explaining the strategic rationale behind the decision to open a location in Langley, Chandra said that for each franchise, the company studies the competition, traffic and daytime workforce.
