Bon Chon Publicly Severs Ties With Mad for Chicken
Last week we posted the news that two of NYC’s Bon Chon Korean fried chicken locations (Koreatown & Flushing) had changed their name to “Mad for Chicken”. They claim the chicken is exactly the same as before, but Bon Chon wants to make sure that you know it’s not. From their official website:
Ah yes- the old open a franchise… steal the recipe… decide you don’t want to pay the royalties anymore game. If this whole thing sounds familiar, it’s because it is. Shorty’s (on 9th Ave. btw. 41+42nd) did the same thing to Tony Luke’s. Thankfully for Midtown Lunch’ers one commenter is reporting that the chicken pretty much tastes the same as it always has, but I’m guessing it still takes forever to get your order. Thanks to Lunch’er Paul for passing along this link to the Bon Chon Website.
