Another Philippines-based chicken franchise, Kukuruku Chicken, is making its way to the region, with several more restaurants in the pipeline. While an exact location has not yet been disclosed, the newest restaurant will be situated on the corner of Stage Rd in Bartlett, positioned near the Kroger at 5995 Stage Rd.
Roque Estipona, a Memphian and the proud owner of the inaugural United States Kukuruku location, excitedly confirmed this development. He hopes to welcome guests within the next six months, with plans unfolding for several additional Kukuruku outlets in the area over the next two years. Estipona envisions these new locales finding their homes on Goodman Rd, Highway 51, Midtown, and Southaven.
The sole Kukuruku United States restaurant is located in Lakeland at 8950 US-64 Suite 102. With a mouthwatering menu featuring lechon fried chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, spaghetti, mac and cheese, french fries, coleslaw, and more, the restaurant has won the hearts and taste buds of its patrons.
With Estipona’s ambitious plans, Kukukuru Chicken is poised for continued success and growth in the local area and beyond. Stay tuned for more crispy updates as Kukukuru continues to carve its place in the fast-casual dining landscape.
