Peppa’s Jerk Chicken Scouts Stanton Street for Expansion

Posted on: October 30th, 2020 at 5:04 am by

A popular jerk chicken spot in Brooklyn is headed to Hell Square on the Lower East Side.

Crown Heights counter-service spot, Peppa’s Jerk Chicken, is currently eyeing 90-96 Stanton Street. The multi-storefront space previously hosted the short-lived Falafix.

News of their likely arrival is confirmed by liquor license application materials submitted to Community Board 3 ahead of the November meetings. Ownership seeks a full liquor license.

Kingston-born Gavin Hussey opened the first iteration of Peppa’s just south of Prospect Park in 2004. In the ensuing years, he expanded the business with his brother Jason and his daughter Jessica, who share ownership. The Crown Heights location opened in 2016, followed by a Peppa’s in Brownsville later that year.

This Lower East Side restaurant would be the largest.
