Guy Fieri’s Chicken Guy! Expanding to Greater Orlando Area
It’s only been a few years since the opening of Guy Fieri’s Chicken Guy! restaurant opened in Disney Springs, however, the chicken franchise will now be expanding to the Greater Orlando area with two new restaurants.
State permits have been filed for two new locations- one within Winter Park where signage can already be seen, and another for Orlando International Airport.
Although at this moment in time, the Orlando International Airport location has not been confirmed, an entity was filed in April for Chicken Guy (MCO) LLC. MCO is Orlando’s airport code, thus we can assume the expansion is coming.
The highly anticipated Chicken Guy! opened in Disney Springs in 2018 to rave reviews and quickly gained a cult following from tourists and locals, so much so that the franchise was set to expand before the pandemic.
The restaurant was going to adding a total of 70 seats to accommodate more guests inside, however, the expansion was halted when the Walt Disney World Resort closed in March 2020 with no further updates.
The restaurant specializes in, of course, chicken as well as house-made sauces, including peri peri and cumin lime mojo, to match whatever your flavor pallate may be.
Currently, Chicken Guy! can also be enjoyed at locations in Miami’s Aventura Mall, Landover MD and in Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. However, more franchises are in the works, including one in Bloomington, MN.
