In addition to this first location in Orlando, the company has announced plans to open additional locations in the Sunshine State – in Orlando, Tampa, Gainesville and Miami – in the near future.
bb.q Chicken was founded in South Korea in 1995, according to the website. The channel arrived in the United States in 2014 with the founding of BBDOTQ USA, an American subsidiary of the company.
The menu offers a variety of fried chicken options ranging from a traditional preparation to several gravy and seasoned variations. There are also recognizable American sides – onion rings, French fries, mozzarella sticks – as well as more Korean dishes such as kimchi fried rice, fried dumplings, and pickled radishes.
