About Chicken Licken
George Sombonos founded Chicken Licken way back in 1981. From the single location opening four decades ago, they’re grown to other 250 restaurants, with the majority of them being in South Africa and a few in Botswana.
Sombonos originally learned about the restaurant trade in the 1970s, whilst his father owned a restaurant himself called the Dairy Den. He made a small trip to the United States when he visit one fast food restaurant in particular in Waco Texas. He loved the fried chicken so much, he offered to buy their recipe for $1,000. They accepted.
From there, he took the recipe back to South Africa, registered the business and company names, and began his journey which would take Chicken Licken to a 5% market share of the fast food restaurants in South Africa.
The Chicken Licken menu has been consistently dynamic over its lifetime, changing and adapting to whatever the locals prefer. Today, their menu is filled with a wondrous range of hot wings, fried chicken, burgers, fries, and plenty more delicious dishes for you to dine on.
One of the large fast food chains Chicken Licken competes with is Burger King. There’s a reason the Burger King menu is being served up all over the world – they make good burgers.
It’ll be interesting to see how Chicken Licken continues to compete in South Africa, and how (or if) they will continue to change their menu to the changing landscape.
