The exact opening dates of these locations are unknown, but these upcoming sites will be the sixth, seventh, and eighth locations in Chicagoland. First, in Aurora, Bonchon will move into Pacifica Square at 4302 E. New York Street, Unit 118, across from the Fox Valley Mall. Next, in Tinley Park, the company will move to 18305 S. Lagrange Road, Unit B, sharing a building with Jumbo Crab. Finally, Bonchon will be moving to Skokie at 5237 West Touhy Avenue, Unit 7.

The company, starting in South Korea in 2002 before being established in the United States in 2006, currently has over 110 U.S. locations in 22 states and Washington D.C. Although Founder Jinduk Seo started the company, CEO Flynn Dekker has aggressively expanded the company worldwide since being appointed in 2019. Now, Bonchon has over 370 locations worldwide, including Thailand, Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, and across the United States.

“Bonchon remains one of fastest growing restaurant brands in the United States thanks to the hard work and perseverance of our franchise partners and team members during a year of unprecedented industry challenges,” said Dekker. “Sales growth has steadily increased due to strategic enhancements in operations, supply chain, and technological innovation. These strategic shifts have not only allowed Bonchon to build our revenue even further, but also to continue expanding our footprint with new openings across the U.S.”

When these locations open, customers can expect Bonchon’s signature fried chicken, which is hand-breaded, double-fried, and served with proprietary sauces made in Bonchon’s Global Kitchen in Busan, South Korea. The fine-casual dining restaurant also features a full menu of Korean fusion cuisines like Bibimbap, Japchae, Bulgogi, and more. Some popular menu items include japchae, bulgogi, and potstickers.
