How KyoChon started?
KyoChon founder Mr Kwon Won-Kang started KyoChon some 23 years ago in a small town called Gu-mi in South Korea. The name "KyoChon" is a combination of Korean word " Kyo " means "PURE" and "Chon" means "VILLAGE", and its represents the philosophy of the brand , that is insisting on nothing but the most natural ingredients and healthy way to produce their food. Mr Kwon also pioneered the double-frying technique which generally acknowledged by fans of Korean styled fried chicken, for longer lasting crispiness and less greasy fried chicken versus traditional and western styled cooking methods. Inspired by traditional Korean dishes and sauces , Mr Kwon was also the first to apply sauces directly onto fried chicken after cooking, developing the famous KyoChon Soy Garlic sauce which is loved by thousands worldwide.
I love the set up for KyoChon biggest outlet grand launching. So lovely setting with fresh flowers and candle. It look so grand and yet classy for a Fried Chicken Restaurant.

The event was hosted by Royce the talented DJ from MyFm Radio Station. Huh! I missed to take selfie with him.
