Come Along for the Journey!

If an entrepreneur can bring a new restaurant concept to the marketplace that fills a genuine consumer void or need and do it with a high-quality product at a fair price, then he or she is almost certain to succeed.

Patinella’s Chicken Grill recognizes a consumer need – a need for something different – something high quality that is prepared fresh and served quickly and professionally in a non-tipping, relaxed and memorable atmosphere.

Patinella’s Chicken Grill is a fast-casual restaurant dedicated to providing very simple, health-consciously prepared menu items upon customers order at a blazing speed. We provide the highest quality, best tasting, made-from-scratch freshly grilled chicken and rice bowls from around the world, Gyros, and fresh-made salads, all in 1,500 and 2,000 Sq. ft situated in high traffic commercial and metropolitan retail centers offering lunch, dinner, and catering.

Serving cuisine that draws on a variety of cultural influences from around the world, including American, Brazilian, European, and the Mediterranean, Patinella’s Chicken Grill offers something for every member of the family to enjoy!
We welcome experienced entrepreneurs and QSR restaurant people to join in the journey as we grow this brand to a regional and national presence.

Healthy & Fresh Products

We are a rare quick-service restaurant that believes in providing a delicious meal without ever looking at a fryer or a microwave. Everything we make we try to make as healthy and fresh as possible.

Established for Over 10 Years

We have been in business for over 10 years and we understand what it takes to open and operate a successful business. With that in mind, we have designed a very aggressive royalty program to help you get off the ground in your first few years, which means more savings and profits for you.

Loyal Customers

Customers are always coming back for more. Whether it’s our always fresh rich bowls, gyros, and salads, or is an item on our menu fully customized. Using any of our ingredients and building the perfect meal will keep customers returning to try new options or pick up their own masterpiece.
