After years of fine-tuning, lots of hardwork and hands-on experience in the F&B industry, President and CEO Rinky Tuano decided to take that big leap and go with the rising chicken joint phenomenon, introducing to the Philippine Market his very own take on “The Best Korean Fried Chicken” under the trade name Gangnam Wings, and incorporated through SEC in 2016 under the company name Riley Food Corporation.
Korean Chicken joints started making waves in the global arena in 2006, appealing quickly in a broad range of customers including the western market. Tuano was at the forefont of the chicken wing boom in Asia under the company that brought Chicken Up, when his passion for F&B management and product development turned into a professional obsession. With the birth of Gangnam Wings, Tuano hopes to differentiate his rand with a greater passion for the Korean Heritage and flavorful authentic food that even Filipinos would love.
Gangnam literally mean “South of the River”, it is also the name of an affluent district on the south of Han River in Seoul, South Korea where the new wealth resides. Bringing Gangnam in Philippines denotes bringing the wealth and class from Seoul to the Philippines. They aim to be defined as a main stream casual dining restaurant which provides friendly, attentive service in a relaxed environment by staff and management that truly enjoy their job.
