Viva Chicken differentiates itself from the many chicken specialists on the Future 50 with a focus on Peruvian flavors. This North Carolina-based fast casual, which launched in 2013, offers a range of salads, sandwiches and wraps, while diners looking for a whole bird can get one of those (plus three sides), too. For the past three years, the chain has upped sales by an average of 14.6%.
