A new chicken experience is coming soon to Abbotsford.

Fritou will soon be opening up shop at its new location at 100-32660 George Ferguson Way.

The fried chicken establishment initially launched in Quebec in 1993, and has expanded to several other markets across Canada in the years following.

Fritou opened its doors in Ontario the next year, New Brunswick in 1995 and Nova Scotia in 1996. B.C. (2002), Alberta (2003) and Saskatchewan (2005) followed.

The restaurant offers chicken pieces, strips, popcorn chicken, burgers, wraps, wings, poutine, salads, sandwiches and more. It is also known for its popular fritou sauce, which is a spicy blend similar to salsa and hot sauce.

Fritou can also be found in Surrey and Vancouver.

An opening date for the Abbotsford location has not yet been announced.

Fritou enters a relatively crowded fried chicken market in Abbotsford, with Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen and Mary Browns both opening up in recent years. Other popular establishments specializing in serving the bird include: KFC, Wings, Famous Chicken, Nando’s and Barcelos.
