Church's Chicken Launches Biggest Ultimate Choice Meal Program in Brand History

New Meal Deal Offers Thousands of $5 Original or Spicy Flavor Combinations

Church's Chicken Launches Biggest Ultimate Choice Meal Program in Brand HistoryIn a move that proves Church’s Chicken is devoted to providing guests more of the great chicken experiences they love, the brand announced its new $5 Real Big Deal starting Aug. 28. Now, guests have the freedom to choose from thousands of flavor combinations featuring Church’s hand-battered, double-breaded fried chicken or Tender Strips, home-style sides, and a honey-butter biscuit and signature jalapeño pepper – for just $5.

The market-leading value was developed specifically in response to guest feedback, which revealed a strong desire for customizable value meals rather than a one-size-fits-all meal with limited options. With the $5 Real Big Deal, Church’s guests not only get to choose from 2-pieces of mixed chicken or 3 Tender Strips in original or spicy, they also have the flexibility to select any two of Church’s delicious and unique side dishes, including baked macaroni & cheese, jalapeño bombers fried okra and corn-on-the-cob. Each $5 meal is topped off with a scratch-made honey-butter biscuit, and a signature jalapeño pepper to squeeze over chicken for an extra spicy kick – one of Church’s most beloved “custom flavor” traditions, dating back to 1952. Everyone gets what they want and it all comes together for just $5, regardless of the combination.

“Consumers are telling us that they want real options for their money,” said Jennifer Chasteen, Vice President of Brand Strategy & Activation at Church’s Chicken. “While we are known for our original and spicy chicken and biscuits, we also feature a full complement of home-style sides. Now guests can explore Church’s entire classic sides menu without worry, because at $5, it’s like getting a second side free.”

The $5 Real Big Deal is a ground-breaking approach to value in that it provides choice around virtually every menu item and flavor combination available at Church’s. A single guest could dine at Church’s every day over a period of years and never have the same meal twice – though the price would always be $5.

The ad campaign, entitled “Game Show,” features a light-hearted, fictional game show called “Just Choose Already!” Each :30 second commercial features a different Church’s customer as the contestant, trying to decide between all of the menu options.

The $5 Real Big Deal is available at all U.S. Church’s Chicken restaurants, while supplies last.
