FATZ Gives Guests the Chance to Change Their Chicken

FATZ, home of the World Famous Calabash Chicken, celebrates its ever-popular buttermilk fried chicken and other tasty chicken dishes with the launch of its latest limited time offer, Change Your Chicken. Serving fresh, never-frozen menu items that start at just $5.99, from Housemade Chicken Salad and scrumptious Chicken Pot Pie to Parmesan Chicken over Pasta and, of course, World Famous Calabash Chicken, the Change Your Chicken menu features a flawless blend of flavors that won’t break the bank.

The new menu, which launches Sept. 4 and runs through Oct. 28, proves that chicken doesn’t have to be boring, and, once fans taste the mouth-watering dishes at FATZ, they’ll never go back to ordinary, tasteless chicken again.

“Chicken doesn’t have to be boring and, unfortunately, that’s what it’s become at many restaurants,” said Jim Balis, Cafe Enterprises CEO. “That’s why we’ve challenged consumers to change their chicken with this new menu. It would be nearly impossible to revert back to tasteless chicken after tasting the flavorful dishes offered at FATZ.”

FATZ started with humble beginnings in 1988 in Spartanburg, S.C., and spread from one peach shed to a sensation across the Southeast with its varied, reasonably priced menu, ample portions of quality food and upbeat service in a comfortable atmosphere. Today, FATZ still believes in the same ideals that originated in that fruit stand 24 years ago and strives to deliver warm, friendly service with housemade, quality ingredients to create a “home away from home” for every guest that walks through the door.

Known as community leaders within each of its 48 locations, FATZ makes it a priority to engage with local communities through pancake breakfast fundraisers, charitable involvement and the Gold Star Program (rewarding students for exemplary behavior).
