Bok Bok Chicken is celebrating the opening of its first restaurant in Las Vegas on Aug. 11 by offering customers free food and by supporting local charity Project 150.
The owners of Bok Bok Chicken are inviting everyone to enjoy their Mediterranean flavors, served fresh in a welcoming environment, free of charge while supplies last from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and again from 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 11. The restaurant is at 7501 W. Lake Mead Blvd., Suite 100, at Buffalo Drive.
Bok Bok Chicken plans to open two other locations around Southern Nevada by the end of 2018. The Mediterranean eatery’s next two locations are being built in the Green Valley and Centennial Hills areas and are scheduled to open this fall. A fourth location is planned to open in Town Square next year.
To celebrate its grand opening and contribute to the community at the same time, Bok Bok Chicken is joining forces with Project 150, whose mission is to serve homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students throughout Nevada. Guests can help raise funds for Project 150 by purchasing any item at the restaurant during its first month in business. Bok Bok Chicken will donate five percent of all sales from Aug. 12 through Sept. 11, 2018. Bok Bok founders said this partnership will continue as it opens its other locations in Southern Nevada.
“We’re excited about launching Bok Bok in Las Vegas and want our guests to have a wonderful dining experience,” Bok Bok founder Silva Chamanian said. “Being able to share our family recipes in this beautiful new space with our friends and everyone here in Las Vegas is our main priority.”
Chamanian said Bok Bok was born in family backyard barbeques, and family is at the heart of the business, with recipes passed down, tested and perfected at those family gatherings. Guests will enjoy fresh, bold and creative food, made from scratch and served in a comfortable environment where modern farmhouse meets Mediterranean.
The menu features a variety of options that cater to just about everyone’s palate, she added. Signature dishes include beef shawerma, rotisserie chicken, and made-to-order falafel. Bok Bok will also make its own pita bread fresh each day and offer a diverse variety of beverages including Tan and Sumac lemonade.
Bok Bok Chicken is a fast-casual concept with restaurants ranging in size from 1,100 to 2,400 square feet, offering between 36 and 55 seats at each location. The restaurants will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. Bok Bok will employ more than 50 people by the time it opens its third location.
Bok Bok Chicken is a family-owned business that serves Mediterranean dishes made fresh from scratch and derived from family recipes. Comfortable and welcoming, Bok Bok Chicken’s ambiance is modern farmhouse meets ancient Mediterranean, putting the food at center stage.
