BonChon Chicken is coming to University Town Center. The South Korean fried chicken restaurant chain, which has six locations in Virginia and two in Maryland, will take over the space being vacated by Hank’s Tavern and Eats, according to the Hyattsville Life and Times.
The paper found that an application had been filed with a county board to transfer Hank’s liquor license to a group called Affluent MD, Inc. According to the State Department of Assessments and Taxation, the business was registered in December by Jing Sheng Huang of Germantown, Md. Two other investors are listed as Xuan Huang-Fu and Peiyan Wang. Known for its “crispy and sticky” fried chicken,
BonChon has expanded in recent years along the East Coast, with 22 locations in the U.S. overall. The restaurants tend to have slightly varied menus but stick within the budget price range.
