Bonchon’s Tysons restaurant opening delayed until the spring

Tysons residents will have to wait a little longer to bite into Bonchon’s crunchy, double-fried chicken — at least without venturing to Fairfax, Annandale, Reston and beyond.

The Korean fried chicken chain won’t open its upcoming location at 8603 Westwood Center Drive until March, a public relations representative told FFXnow.

Bonchon anticipated a May 2022 opening when it announced plans for a 2,600 square-foot restaurant in Tysons in September 2021. Though the company didn’t provide a reason for the delay, many new businesses have seen their rollouts slowed by supply chain and staffing challenges during the pandemic.

Started in South Korea in 2002, Bonchon expanded to the U.S. in 2006 and now has over 100 American locations, including five sites in Fairfax County and one in Fairfax City. A location on Old Pickett Road in Fairfax never reopened after closing when COVID-19 hit in March 2020.

Located off of Route 7 near the Spring Hill Metro station, the restaurant is on the ground floor of an office complex that will also add Shawaya, a restaurant and cafe that will serve Arabian cuisine.

Shawaya will be located in Suite 140 at 8605 Westwood Center Drive. Attempts to reach the business were unsuccessful.
