FLAVORTOWN JOINS THE LINE-UP AS THE REDSKINS KICK-OFF THE PRE-SEASON WITH THE OPENING OF CHICKEN GUY!
Landover, MD., (Aug. 15, 2019) Redskins’ fans rejoice as Chicken Guy! officially opens today at FedExField. A collaboration between celebrity chef, Guy Fieri, and restaurateur, Robert Earl, Chicken Guy! will delight hungry fans with house-made, succulent chicken tenders paired with 22 signature sauces. The crowd attending today’s pre-season game against the Cincinnati Bengals will be among the first to taste the restaurant’s signature dishes and sauces.
“C’mon now, what’s better than some real deal chicken and football,” said Fieri. “We are stoked to bring Chicken Guy! to FedEx Field just in time for the pre-season.”
“It is such a thrill to open our first Chicken Guy! inside a football stadium with the Redskins at FedExField. Ever since we opened our first location at Disney Springs® in Orlando, Chicken Guy! fans continue to line up to experience a bit of Flavortown,” said Robert Earl. “We are looking forward to growing the brand and will soon announce additional openings this year.”
Chicken Guy! prides itself on its all-natural fresh chicken tenders, hand-pounded to maximize crunch and paired with a wide selection of delicious sauces. Brined in fresh lemon juice, pickle brine and buttermilk, and infused with fresh herbs, these tenders deliver on flavor and texture. The menu at FedExField features the tenders served as a combo with fries and two sauces, on their own or in a sandwich, including the CG Classic and The Blat. However, MVP’s of the Chicken Guy! flavor game are the 22 different sauces. From Donkey Sauce, Nashville Honey Hot, Avocado Crema, Peri Peri and Curry Mayonnaise – there is something for everyone.
“Guy Fieri and Robert Earl have put together a fantastic food concept that Redskins fans are sure to enjoy,” said Chris Bloyer, Senior Vice President, Stadium Operations and Guest Experience. “We could not be more thrilled about bringing this delicious food to the best fans in the NFL.”
Chicken Guy! at FedExField is the second location to open, with the third opening its doors in Miami later this summer. For more information including details about the menu, visit www.chickenguy.com Follow us on Twitter and Instagram @chickenguy and on Facebook at Chicken Guy
