The PONKO Coop Grows

From the day the flagship location of PONKO Chicken opened in Chamblee in 2017, PONKO has been one of the most popular and fastest growing concepts in the Atlanta marketplace.


Led by PONKO Owner & CEO, Dr. Patrick Sallarulo and Executive Vice President & CFO Ekow Wilmot, the concept expanded quickly, opening its first franchise in Midtown Atlanta in April 2019, quickly followed by a location in the Mercedes Benz Arena in August of 2019, then franchise openings in October and December of that same year.


Decatur and Lenox franchises both opened in the summer of 2020, with the Alpharetta franchise opening most recently in January of 2021. With more than 20 additional PONKO Chicken franchises getting ready to open throughout Georgia and the Southeast in 2022 and 2023, the future for PONKO spreading its passion for great service, award winning chicken and wonderful food to guests across the Southeast is very exciting.


Although each of the PONKO Chicken Restaurants have the same freshly prepared menu offerings, each location showcases its own personality and nuances. While some PONKO restaurants offer full bars, others might offer weekend brunch, live music, or happy hour specials. All hours and offerings are listed under each location on our website.
