THE HOUSE that Fried Chicken Built has set shop in Bacolor, adding its signature “sarap to the bones” dish to the town’s famous asado, tamales and puto seco.
On Friday, Metro Central Luzon Foods Inc. (MCLFI) opened its fifth Max’s franchise along the Jose Abad Santos Avenue (Gapan-San Fernando-Olongapo Road) in Barangay Makabakle.
“We wanted to continue serving Kapampangans from all corners of the province with our ‘sarap to the bones’ chicken, which is only one of the variety of sumptuous food included in our menu and of course, complemented by the trademark hospitable service and relaxing ambience of the restaurant,” said MCLFI president Ma. Teresa Lau Laus.

Other Max’s Restaurant branches under the MCLFI franchise are located in SM City Pampanga, SM City Clark, SM City Telabastagan, and in Cabanatuan City.
The Laus matriarch dedicated the new branch’s opening to the memory of her late husband, local business magnate Levy Laus. She was joined in the opening festivities by her children, Pampanga First Lady Yolly Pineda, Mayor Diman Datu, and executives of Max’s.
For his part, Datu thanked the Laus family for taking the Max’s franchise to his town.
“This is yet another manifestation of investor confidence in our beloved Bacolor that shall greatly contribute to our continuous rising from the Mount Pinatubo devastations.”
The mayor was referencing to his town, especially in the very place where now Max’s stands, being virtually obliterated by the lahar rampages in the wake of the volcano’s eruptions.

The two-storey Max’s Bacolor has four function halls that can accommodate 300 guests.
It stands adjacent to Baic Group and Changhe Motors showroom which are also under the Laus Group conglomerate.
