QUINCY – A Korean fried chicken restaurant, part of a chain that's reportedly one of the fastest growing in the country, is expected to open in North Quincy in the coming months.
The restaurant, bb.q Chicken, opened its first location in 1995. A manager of the North Quincy restaurant, Wei Zheng, went before the Quincy License Board for approval in March.
The restaurant will be at 60 Billings Road, across the street from Burke's Seafood.
Officials at the city clerk's office say they've been in touch with the franchisees and expect the restaurant to open soon. The opening was delayed due to supply chain issues with equipment.
The new owners did not reply to requests for comment submitted via their website Thursday.

The bb.q Chicken menu includes fried chicken in two dozen flavors; kimchi fried rice; ddeok bokki, a simmered rice cake; fried dumplings; corn salad; and other offerings.
bb.q Chicken has locations in Allston and on Boston's Beacon Street, and plans to open spots in Lowell and Malden. There are also franchises in two dozen other states, including California, New York, Rhode Island, Texas and Florida.
A website called Nation's Restaurant News ranked bb.q Chicken among the fastest growing chains in the nation with 51 locations as of 2020.
