A Korean fried chicken restaurant will be opening on Greenpoint Avenue this June.
The establishment, called Pelicana, will be located at 47-08 Greenpoint Avenue, at the space that was formerly a hardware store.
Pelicana, headquartered in South Korea, operates more than 2,000 chain-stores in Korea. This will be among the few to open in the United States. There are currently locations in Flushing and the other in Palisades Park, NJ.
The company is currently accepting franchise inquiries.
The owner of the Sunnyside venture is Julie Kim, who also operates the Pelicana in Flushing.
The Sunnyside space is currently undergoing construction and Kim hopes to open in June,
The restaurant will consist of 46 seats, with 21 tables. It will be open from 12 pm until midnight seven days per week and will deliver.
Kim is currently seeking a wine and beer license.
The Sunnyside location will offer the exact menu as that offered in Flushing and New Jersey, according to Kim.
The Flushing location has more than 250 Yelp reviews, with 4 ½ stars.
