Frisco joins Hallyu Wave

Frisco is now the home of the third location of Bonchon Chicken as the famous Korean restaurant opened its doors according to a CW33 article from June 20. They say, 

“Bonchon Chicken has officially opened its third location in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex on Monday, June 20. It is located at 4760 Preston Road at the corner of Preston and Lebanon.

“Bringing another location this close to our corporate headquarters is a special moment for us as a team and as a brand,” Flynn Dekker, CEO of Bonchon, said in a press release. “Since we’ve relocated to Dallas in 2020, the city has shown nothing but love to our existing Bonchon locations. There is so much interest in Korean culture right now. Since we are a brand born in Korea, it really connects with what we offer. So, we are ramping up our growth in DFW — investing in the community to expand our footprint throughout the area. We can’t wait to open the doors to our Frisco location and treat our guests to our famous Korean fried chicken.”

Additionally, Bonchon Chicken will be helping out with the community and at the same time leveling up their customer experience according to a Benzinga article from June 20 which reports, 

“Dedicated to supporting the Frisco community, the new Bonchon location is partnering with Frisco Family Services following the opening. For the week of June 27, 15% of sales will be donated to the organization, helping Frisco residents facing hunger and homelessness.

In addition to this, Bonchon is committed to innovating the customer experience. The Frisco restaurant will be the first location to offer pick-up boxes, further streamlining delivery and online ordering for Dallas-Fort Worth customers. 

Since its inception in Busan, South Korea in 2002, Bonchon’s mission to share Korean comfort food around the world has been more than a success. With more than 385 locations worldwide and 115-plus locations in the U.S., the Korean chicken brand is a global sensation. On top of the cult-favorite fried chicken wings, drumsticks and tenders, the brand also provides a variety of flavorful offerings and Pan Asian favorites including japchae, kimchi, Korean tacos and potstickers.”

To jumpstart their opening, Bonchon Chicken will be giving away free five-piece chicken as well as a ‘double-fried’ t-shirt to their first 100 customers in their opening.
