An internationally-recognized Halal fried chicken chain is coming to Canada

Chicking, an international fried chicken chain, is making its way into Canada this year, with plans to expand in the next couple of years. The Canadian franchise will go by ChickQueen and is opening their first store in Mississauga. The restaurant chain is one of the first fully halal quick service restaurant brands worldwide, and began in Dubai, UAE in the year 2000. The brand has since expanded throughout the eastern hemisphere, with restaurants sprouting up in countries like Malaysia, India, Australia and England to name a few. The Canadian franchise will mark the brand’s first footprint in North America. Chicking’s global franchise management division, BFI Management, says they had focused on opening in Canada because of the increasing market in Halal products. “With the addition of Canada within our system, our food may now be found in almost every corner of the globe,” said AK Mansoor, Managing Director of Chicking. The new chain will continue to offer fully Halal-certified chicken and using birds that have been raised on Canadian farms. Construction is underway for the forthcoming flagship store in Mississauga at 5130 Dixie Road. The grand opening is slated for March 19. The company already has plans to expand to a total of 25 ChickQueen stores in Canada, with between 10 to 15 opening throughout Ontario in the next two years. https://www.tastetoronto.com/news/an-internationally-recognized-halal-fried-chicken-chain-is-coming-to-canada
