MOChicken, which is at this time parked in close proximity to Sugarfire Smokehouse at 1730 E. Republic Rd. Suite A, is slated to open in the coming months, explained Clint McCann.
McCann, a chef with Sugarfire Smokehouse, mentioned opening a foodstuff truck venture was in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We noticed a good deal much more people trending toward extra casual dining and considerably less sit-down-eating,” he explained in a mobile phone job interview. “Food vans have been common for a while and I believe it’s getting even far more well-known for people to just go get some stuff.”
The thought of eating is modifying, which provides house to develop food items merchandise and make it even far more available to visitors, McCann included.
“It’s a entertaining way to check out some new concepts and get evidence of concepts,” McCann said.
The unofficial fried rooster sandwich competition among institutions like Popeye’s, KFC, Wendy’s and many others is definitely what drew McCann in.

The fried rooster sandwich from MOChicken may possibly be a worthy contender.
“One is the freshness — we’re generating sandwiches to get,” McCann reported. “We’ve received a good proprietary breading that we use. We use Martin’s potato bun, which is the ideal way to make a chicken sandwich. They are light-weight, pillowy and delectable. We use Duke’s mayonnaise, which, there is a mayonnaise war much too, but I never want to get into that.”
McCann’s individual really like of food started off from studying how to prepare dinner with his grandmother.
“A great deal of tales go this way,” McCann reported. “I expended the summers with my grandparents and realized how to make gumbo, jambalaya and refreshing biscuits in the early morning. I seriously noticed how excellent fresh food could be. There is a thing about southern cooking that speaks to me.”
In addition to the the fried chicken sandwich, McCann claimed there are other quirky things, like the No Refunds Spicy Sandwich, a response to the Nashville-model sizzling chicken sandwich, and Buffalo Springfield, a just take on incredibly hot wings tossed in buffalo sauce with bleu cheese coleslaw.
“It’s an expertise,” McCann mentioned. “What I’m hunting for is perhaps an different to a fast-meals knowledge. I wouldn’t phone us quick meals, but we’re fairly swift.”
McCann mentioned MOChicken will be stationed at Metro Eats on 2463 W. Sunshine St. when it opens someday this summertime. Until eventually then, the foods truck will host pop up activities powering Sugarfire in the parking ton.
