A dedicated team is the driving force behind the operations of this specialist franchise company and this approach of hard work and passion corroborates an ideal business partner for the novice in the food industry. Full operational and managerial training are the pillars of this enterprising company. On going product and systems development supports this concept of franchising and makes for a profitable Fast Food concept.

The Barcelos range of chicken products is known for their quality and generous portions, and promotes return visits to the site. As important as the Barcelos Legend is, so is the marinade recipe used for Barcelos Chicken, which is so old its origins cannot be traced. Using the finest quality chickens, Barcelos Chickens are marinated for 24 hours and then flame grilled to absolute perfection.

  • Lower cost of entry and shorter hours than other restaurant concepts.
  • Single-unit, multi-unit and semi-absentee operations allow for greater financial flexibility.
