BIRMINGHAM, ALA. — On May 23 Chester’s International Co. introduced the Honey Stung Chicken Sandwich and Bites at all locations nationwide. Chester’s initially launched the products at select locations during the summer of 2020, which was popular with its customers, the company said.
Chester’s said 62% of consumers said they like or love spicy flavors or foods, and 55% of QSR menus now feature spicy chicken sandwiches.
Chester’s latest rendition of the spicy chicken sandwich features Chester’s signature double-breaded chicken, tossed in Frank’s RedHot Stingin’ Honey Garlic Sauce. This item follows the spring rollout of Chester’s new Hot N Spicy Poultry Rub. “We've already staked claim that we've been making the juiciest, crunchiest chicken on the planet for decades,” said William Culpepper, vice president of marketing. “We're now turning up the heat with our new extra spicy seasoning as well as fan-favorite Honey Stung Chicken, available this summer only to add a kick to the road trip season.”
Honey Stung Chicken Sandwiches and Bites will be available through Labor Day.
