New York’s Bello Chicken market is expanding to New Jersey and the Carolinas with a new location in Brooklyn.
Bello is expanding its poultry business from the Northeast to the Carolines and to the south, with the first locations expected to open in 2020.
The company announced on Wednesday it had purchased the property at 15th and Main Streets in Brooklyn and will expand into the space in 2018.
The location will have two new locations, one at 18th and Market streets and the other at 909 Market St., with more locations planned in the coming years.
The New York-based company is also expanding its operations in the Carolinos, with its newest market opening this summer in Charlotte, N.C. The new Bellos are part of a nationwide expansion of the brand.
The first two Bellos opened in the New England region in 2018 and 2019.
In 2020, Bello launched a new chicken production facility in the Northeast, which has since been sold.
The chicken and meat businesses also will be expanding beyond the Northeast and will open locations in the Southeast and Midwest in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
The brand’s new North American headquarters is expected to be located in Springfield, Mass., and it will have a total of five locations, including a new regional headquarters in the Chicago area.
