“I’m excited to bring the flavors of my country to the world with the launch of my very own Chicken Sandwich, inspired by one of my favorite dishes, the Milanesa,” says Lionel Messi. “There is no better partner than Hard Rock International to bring this project to life.

Hard Rock Cafe opened its first location in London, England, in 1971. The brand then expanded to cities around the world, such as Miami, Paris, Sydney, New York, Los Angeles or Lisbon. It always has a restaurant space with burgers in the spotlight, but also a store with various merchandising items, most related to the musical style that gives the restaurant its name.
