Pepe’s is the home of fresh flame-grilled chicken but did you know their story;
Pepe’s Story starts in London in 2004. At the time, Piri Piri was virtually unknown in the UK and available in a handful of places. That was all about to change with the launch of their first store in London, which was called Pepe’s Piri Piri.
Almost overnight, Pepe's Piri Piri chicken became the talk of the town. They were the first to use the name Piri Piri and maybe a sense of curiosity attracted their first customers. But it was the taste of their chicken, startlingly fresh and flavourful, that brought the customers back. They told their friends, who told others, and soon there were lines out the door. Families loved it. Kids loved it. Foodies loved it. Even vegetarians loved it. (Yes, there's a vegetarian menu!)
From these humble beginnings, Piri Piri has become a nationally recognized dish loved by young and old. So overwhelming was the customer reaction to their great tasting chicken, that they were soon approached by people wanting to share in Pepe’s success and open their own stores. Today, there are nearly 150 Pepe's Piri Piri restaurants across the UK.
Not surprisingly, word of their great tasting Piri Piri chicken has spread across the globe and they’ve opened stores in Northern Ireland and in the USA. Well, they decided to open a new generation of stores under the name Pepe’s Grill Brand.
Pepe’s Grill serves the same great tasting Piri Piri chicken they’re renowned for, but in a casual restaurant environment. Pepe’s Grill has landed!
