#HotChickenweek22 Commandments

1. MAKE NO BONES ABOUT IT:

Make no bones about it: This year's #HotChickenWeek22 will be even bigger, hotter and tastier than last year’s! We are spicing up the number of participating restaurants this year, but there might be an instance of the participating restaurant you visit running out of their #HotChickenWeek22 specialty chicken toward the end of a shift. Be an early bird and order your hot chicken ahead of time. Remember to thank them for working their tail feathers off to do this for you. DO NOT BE A JERK TO OUR RESTAURANTS. We’re in this together, fellow Chicken Heads!

 

2. THERE WILL BE WAITS

People have been talking about #HotChickenWeek22 all year. I mean we ARE talking $7 hot chicken here, people. Don't be surprised if restaurants have waits. If they do, buy a beer and relax, share a post on social media using #HotChickenWeek22 and maybe you’ll win some prizes...

3. DON'T HURT YOURSELF. ORDER TO YOUR MOUTH'S SPICE LEVEL!

Face it, we know you want to try the hottest, most spiciest chicken there is, but please be mindful of your mouth's spice level capacity! We don't want to see anyone suffer or sweat profusely while eating chicken. So be kind to yourself and don't fly the coop with chicken hotter than your mouth can handle!

 

4. YOU WILL TIP

$7 brings out the cheap in all of us, but really, you're getting a $10-$15 hot chicken meal, so kindly tip at least 20%. The people who are serving you are working harder during #HotChickenWeek22 than at any other point in the year. A kind word will also be welcome—these people are our friends and neighbors, so please do not give them any gristle.

 

5. YOU REALLY SHOULD BUY A DRINK AND/OR OTHER FOODS

All #HotChickenWeek22 chicken are a la carte. Sides are extra. While extra purchases are not a requirement, we gently suggest that you round out that $7 hot chicken selection with some fries and libations, or, we dunno…something green??! Sides it up!

 

6. CHECK FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, AND TWITTER

#HotChickenWeek22 is on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Follow us and get up-to-date info on everything #HotChickenWeek22. Feel free to share your chicken photos using #HotChickenWeek22 and you might win downright delectable prizes.
