Bonchon Chicken (Korean본촌치킨; Hanja本村치킨) is a South Korean-based international fried chicken restaurant franchise.[1][2] According to the company, Bonchon is a Korean word meaning "My Hometown".


The Bonchon Chicken restaurant began in 2002 in Busan, South Korea. The first location in the U.S. was in Fort Lee, New Jersey,[3] home to a large South Korean expatriate population. It later spread to California, New York, Connecticut, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Texas, and Washington state.[4] The Korean fried chicken franchise currently operates in 21 states in the U.S. and 8 countries internationally.
