Cricinfo — ESPNCricinfo.com — The Chicken Pen (formerly known as the Chicken Shed) is back, and it will feature “Chicken seasoning ingredient” ingredients.
The brand’s website says that “in the future, we are hoping to introduce new chicken seasoning recipes” and says that the brand is “one of the few chicken producers that uses natural chicken and poultry ingredients.”
The brand, owned by a Florida man named Robert A. Hays, has been in business since 2002, and its website describes the chicken pen as “the world’s first poultry pen.”
The chicken pen was originally launched in 2003 in South Carolina, but it has since been relaunched in Florida.
A spokesperson for Hays told CricInfo that he and his team are looking forward to “creating new and exciting dishes” with the new name.
“I have no idea if this is going to be a huge hit or not,” he said.
“But it’s the best name we’ve seen for the brand, and we’ll be working to bring it back soon.”
Hays has a long history in the chicken industry, having opened his first restaurant in 1983 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
He went on to open a second restaurant in South Florida, and in 2005 opened the Chicken Shredder and Chicken Czar in Tampa.
The Chicken Shredders and Czar restaurants are both now closed.
The company also has a restaurant in New York City, and a Chicken Shed franchise in California.
