Happy Birthday, Charlie!

I am surprised to know that there’s still quite a number of people who haven’t tried Chicken Charlie yet – considering how popular this fast-growing food chain has become. Oh boy, are you missing a lot!

Chicken Charlie introduced the first soy garlic double-fried chicken in the Philippines way back in 2010.  I learned about this establishment early 2011 and have been a loyal customer ever since. I never grow tired of eating their chicken.Back then, when Chicken Charlie was still starting out, they used to have this cute bone bin as well as ordinary paper plates.Bone Bin & Paper Plate

A lot has changed, albeit not drastically, in a span of 3 years. Chicken Charlie continues to re-invent the look of their store through the direction of their CEO, Mr. Ifore Yu and his wife, Jiselle Chua as the restaurant’s interior designer giving it a young and hip concept. Thus, making it more inviting for customers to dine-in.

3 years down the road, Chicken Charlie still creates quality, delicious yet very affordable food. According to CEO, Mr. Ifore Yu:Mr. Ifore Yu

“We would like to tell everyone that we are very affordable compared to other fast food chains.”

In a short span of time, Chicken Charlie has impressively expanded to a whopping 17 branches, with Greenfield, Mandaluyong being the latest addition and soon opening in San Lazaro, Manila.

To showcase Chicken Charlie’s selection of signature dishes during their anniversary launch, we were treated to a delicious variety of items from their menu.
