AURORA, Colo. — A Korean fried chicken restaurant has closed its doors in Aurora.

Von's Chicken announced it "decided to close down" its business.

The oven-and-fried chicken restaurant had been a community favorite at South Peoria Street and East Iliff Avenue since 2019.

"We regret to inform you that we have decided to close down our business," Von's Chicken posted on its door. "Over the years, we have enjoyed the relationships with our customers. Von's Chicken could not have been as successful as it was without your support and loyalty."

"Thank you for being with our restaurant in all its ups and downs. We wish you all the best for your continued success. We will see you at a new location later."

Von's Chicken was a favorite of Denver Broncos players, with signatures of many former players hung on a wall of the restaurant.
