Barcelos Flame Grilled Chicken is well-known, industry-leading brand.
After our humble beginning in 1993, with only one store operating in Pretoria (South Africa), we started growing exponentially. The continuous growth resulted in us embarking on the franchising journey, in 1998.
We have been expanding our business persistently ever since establishing our global brand. With today’s global trends demanding a fast lane approach in so many aspects of our lives, there is little time available to enjoy good, old-fashioned traditions and ideals. This applies equally to food and eating habits around the world. Therefore, we at Barcelos are determined to find the perfect balance between the traditional, healthy home-style cuisine, and the fast pace demands modern society.
Our quick-service restaurants specialize in the traditional Portuguese way of serving healthy and scrumptious flame grilled chicken. Prepared as authentically as it was mastered by the Portuguese hundreds of years ago, our recipes have been passed down through generations and are still our best kept secret. Our original flavor is unsurpassed and, after centuries, still satisfies the most discerning palate. The current focus on healthy living, and simultaneous demand for affordable, quickly served food are the substance of our recipe for success.
To truly enjoy the magic of Barcelos, it is crucial to discover its uniqueness through its mesmerizing history.
