About Sticky’s Chicken

A restaurant that was born to fulfill a father’s dream – Sticky’s Chicken is a team-up of a brother and sister which started as a food truck. It became a total hit due to its flavorful chicken coated with a special sticky sauce that captured the heart of the people. But this special sticky sauce goes down to an interesting story.

As the popular method states “Trial and Error”, the special sticky sauce of Sticky’s Chicken went to a lot of trials before finally achieving the best-tasting sauce we have today!

When chicken wings were slowly becoming popular in the 90s, the Vivares family went on a family night to try some. This is where the head of the family, Ceferino Vivares, thought about making his very own flavored chicken wings.

Of course, it was not an overnight success, it went through testings to finally achieve the perfect sauce. Patsy and Benson Vivares, the owners of Sticky’s Chicken, and the rest of the family enjoyed this sauce for many years as it was mainly used for parties and family gatherings. But the brother and sister have something better in their mind, to share the goodness of this sauce with the rest of the world! 

In 2014, they started Sticky’s Chicken by transforming a used FedEx truck. Their menu revolves around their signature sauce which became instantly popular among the locals. No one in the family has any past experience with food but they knew that this is something they want to try.

Ceferino Vivares was born in the Philippines who worked with the coconut plantations but left and enlisted in the army. He always wanted to start his own food stand and this passion made his family establish their very own food truck.  

As mentioned, they started as a food truck and even made history as the first food truck that’s being offered in Uber Eats.
