Over the last year, Columbus has undergone a Korean fried chicken revolution of sorts, and this week, the city is receiving a pair of new eateries.

C.M. Chicken, which opened its first central Ohio location in the fall of 2021, recently held the soft opening of its Westerville storefront, according to an employee.

The eatery, which is located at 5947 S. Sunbury Rd. in Westerville, is C.M. Chicken’s third restaurant in Columbus. Its first is located at 1132 Henderson Rd., and another store located at 1510 Cross Creeks Blvd. in Pickerington.


Additionally, bb.q Chicken will open its first location in the Columbus area on March 9. It will be located at 17 E. Lane Ave.

The eatery, which will also serve Soju (a type of Korean spirit) and Korean cocktails, will be owned and operated by a handful of veterans Columbus restaurant-owners, including Anne and Chul Kim.
