WELCOME TO BARC
Barcelos Flame Grilled Chicken is a market leading brand with a well established
identity. Coming from humble beginnings with only a single operation founded in
Pretoria, South Africa in 1993; the company has grown exponentially which led us to
start franchising in 1998. We have been continually expanding and quickly becoming a
household name the world over ever since.
Our quick service restaurants specialise in the traditional way of serving healthy and
spicy, flame grilled chicken, prepared as authentically as it was mastered by the
Portuguese hundreds of years ago. The recipes we use for our meals and sauces have
been passed down through generations and are still our best kept secrets. Our original
flavour is unsurpassed and after centuries, still satisfies the most discerning palate.
With today’s global trends demanding the fast lane approach in so many avenues of our
lives, there is little time available to enjoy good, old-fashioned traditions and ideals.
The current trend towards healthy living and the demand for affordable fast food is
driving this successful recipe.
This rule applies equally as much to food and eating habits around the world and as such
we at Barcelos are determined to find the perfect balance between the traditional,
healthy home-style cuisine and the fast lane demands of the modern world.
Although a humble story it is important that one discovers the unique taste and
experience of the Barcelos concept through its history and roots of origin to truly enjoy
the magic of Barcelos.
THE BARCELOS IDEN
As with most brands, the Barcelos identity has undergone some transformations over
the years in order to remain a key player in the casual dining/quick service restaurant
With our identity rooted in culture, tradition and history, the Barcelos brand has

a relaxed and convenient dining experience.
Today, the Barcelos group boasts many franchised outlets throughout South Africa,
Botswana, Nigeria, Ghana, Zambia, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Canada, Dubai,
Mauritius & soon in Sudan & Pakistan, so it is clearly evident that we have mastered the
recipe for success and growth.

The Legend Of Barcelos
The Legend of Barcelos
The idealisation of the Barcelos Rooster derived from a legend
concerning a galego who was sentenced to hang despite his protests of innocence.
In a last-minute appeal to the judge, who was having dinner at the time,
the condemned man made a bold statement:
If his claim of innocence was true, the roasted rooster,
resting on the judges plate would get up and crow.
Suddenly, a glorious scarlet-plumed cockerel rose from the plate, crowing loud and long.
The man was acquitted, of course!
The Village Of Barcelos
Barcelos is named after a quaint Portuguese town famous for the ancient
legend of the Barcelos cockerel and known for its pottery and ceramic wares.
Shops and streets all over the town are decorated with colourful ceramic cockerels,
and there is still time to have a good meal or a slow cup of coffee with a friend.
THE BARCELOS PRO
The Barcelos menu has been carefully balanced so as to satisfy patrons in need of a
quick bite through the take - away menu as well as catering for a full family dinner in the
seated restaurant area. Barcelos offers a choice of four primary spicy flavours of
marinade to enjoy.
Our marinades are blended from a variety of tantalising spices combined with various
strengths of Peri-Peri spices, fresh chillies and also the infamous Bird's Eye Chilli.
Patrons have a choice of Tangy Lemon, Mild Peri, Veri Peri and for the super daring and
hot spirited individuals, we also offer our famous Supa Peri marinade.
Our specialty chicken products are marinated for a period of 24 hours prior to being
char-grilled on open flame gas griddles to absolute perfection before being served.
The Barcelos chicken burgers have also proven to be one of the most popular meals on
the menu. Using pure chicken breast fillets in combination with the Barcelos marinades
served on a fresh hot bun undoubtedly makes this product a must for the hungry.
A variety of other meals such as kebabs, shawarmas, hot crispy fries, garlic rolls, stirfries and salads conclude a full and exciting menu.
A kiddies meal section is also included in the menu.
Barcelos Flame Grilled Chicken, through its unique ambience, spicy taste and menu
variety is now poised to expand and share this successful recipe with people all over the
Nothing compares to flame grilled perfection!
