Bonchon created their signature sauce in Korea back in 2002, and have kept their original recipe ever since.  Every piece of Bonchon chicken is double-fried, then hand brushed with their signature sauce.

In the beginning, there were few places to satisfy this craving in the United States. Their founder, Mr. Seo, introduced premium, flavorful sauces and cooking techniques served in a globally inspired, modern and sleek environment. And for the next generation of diners, a new way to experience fried chicken was born.
Bonchon was recognized by Business Insider in 2019 as “the gold standard for fried chicken” beating out five major restaurant chains as “best chicken wings”. We are meeting with Flynn Dekker, CEO of Bonchon.
