Chiktopia chicken to land at intu Lakeside this month
HALAL STATUS Fully Halal food menu • Alcohol served
There’s a new chicken brand in town with not just any ol’chicken concept but one that promises to be “the better chicken concept”!
Chiktopia has announced that it will be opening its first site at the multi million pound extension of the shopping destination intu Lakeside this month.
With their grand opening scheduled for Friday 19th, we’ve been informed that although alcohol will be sold: “We will be selling only Halal chicken.”
This new fast food restaurant is aiming to serve chicken inspired by recipes from across the Deep South of America in particular New Orleans.
The 120-cover eatery’s menu will include fried and grilled chicken burgers and tenders, skinny fries, salads, wraps, vegan and veggie options, thick dairy shakes and unique Louisiana biscuits.
Chiktopia is being led by Alastair Gordon, formerly of Ole & Steen, and advised by a group of senior industry figures including Dan Einzig, founder of Mystery Design, Mark Lilley, CEO of Abokado and Richard Morris MD of Tortilla.
Mr Gordon said: “We’re so excited that Chiktopia will be opening soon. A huge amount of work has gone in over the last few months, all focused on giving British consumers the best possible chicken experience imaginable.
“Intu Lakeside, with its mix of couples and families and driven by both state-of-the-art leisure experiences and a well-established retail destination, is the perfect platform on which to demonstrate the broad appeal of our brand and our philosophy of fast food to feel good about.”
Chiktopia is also offering one lucky winner the chance of winning free chicken for an entire year (one meal up to the value of £8 each day) by simply signing up to their newsletter via their website.
