Chicken Bar was founded in 2019 by Asanda Maqabuka and has become the new home of African grilled chicken dishes that embraces what it truly means to be from an African township.  From the heart of the Eastern Cape, they bring forward a forgotten quality of food, flavor, and aesthetic. They pride themselves as an African fast-food. brand born from the stories of our origins and needs.

Chicken Bar was born out of the desire to create and build a long term profitable sustainable business. Our first, and flagship store, was opened in 2019 in Mthatha, Eastern Cape, South Africa. Throughout the time of our very successful first year of operation, we have had numerous people asking to be part of our brand.
