You’ve heard of “chicken and waffles,” but what about chicken IN a waffle cone?
No fork needed! A new restaurant selling portable fried chicken dishes is coming to Grand Rapids.
Chick’nCone is coming to Grand Rapids this fall
According Grand Rapids Business JournalWest Michigan’s first Chick’nCone location is opening at 2090 Celebration Drive NE, Suite 124, in Grand Rapids this fall.
The fast-casual restaurant chain was launched in 2014 by Jonathan Almanzar and Josh Lanier in Colorado and then New York.
Primarily a food and restaurant truck concept to begin with, the chain has grown to 24 brick-and-mortar locations across the United States and even Dubai!
This will be West Michigan’s first Chick’nCone restaurant. The other Michigan location is on the east side of the state in Madison Heights.
Maybe you saw Chick’nCone on the Food Network:
What type of food does the Chick’nCone serve?
Well, as you might have guessed, chicken in a cone! Crispy fried chicken is tossed with your choice of sauce and served in a hand-rolled waffle cone.
Sauce options include: Cinna-Maple, Kick’nRanch, Buffalo Blue, BBQ, Peri Peri (spicy South African chili sauce), Yell BBQ (barbecue made with sweet and tangy mustard).
You can also order a fried chicken sandwich or chicken fillets.
Sides include Cajun-seasoned fries, Cajun-seasoned buttered corn, and macaroni and cheese.
And don’t forget the dessert! Chick’nCone serves vanilla, chocolate and caramel shakes made with waffle cone pieces.
Other locations also featured specials, such as “Back to School Cereal Cones.”
Now, we don’t yet know if the Grand Rapids location will serve alcohol, but some Chick’nCones also serve Boozy Slushys and craft beer.
