The fried chicken at bb.q Chicken is fried in olive oil.

Offerings including Kimchi Fried Rice, Cheese Sticks, Fried Dumpings and Ddeok Bokki soup as on the menu as well.

In 1999, the restaurant opened a research and development center in South Korea known as Chicken University.

“Chicken University was established in South Korea in 1999 as a dedicated facility for R&D and franchisee education. The most important success factor in F&B business and franchise business is to develop delicious and healthy food.
