The franchise operates with certain core values in mind. For one, the promise to “always use never-frozen raw chickens to cook to keep the freshness of our foods.” Secondly, the restaurant promises to “keep the softness and chewiness of our chicken without bad odor by marinating chicken in our secret sauce for 24 hours.”
