Bonchon Chicken coming to Bradlee Shopping Center in December

A Bonchon Chicken franchise plans to open its doors in December in the Bradlee Shopping Center, ALXnow has learned.

It’s the first Korean fried chicken franchise for Maryland-based owner Stanely Grabowski, who says he wants to open more locations in the area.

“We’re looking for locations right now,” he said. “This is a really good area. I think we have a lot of traffic, a lot of visibility here. This shopping center is a really good shopping center, too.”

When it opens, the location at 3690 King Street will keep Alexandria residents from traveling to Arlington and the Alexandria part of Fairfax County to get their fix.

“When I tried the food I was blown away by it,” Grabowski said. “I’d never had chicken that tastes like this. Basically when it was time to figure out what franchise I wanted to do it was a no-brainer.”
