12

One month after the very successful launch of its first outpost in Dubai, at the Walk, JBR, Dave’s Hot Chicken’s second location is already coming in hot! This time, the LA-born street food sensation is bringing the heat to Motor City!

Located in First Avenue Mall, this second branch has opened its door today and features a two-storey venue with an outdoor terrace upstairs, seating a total of 90 diners. Like their flagship on JBR, Dave’s Hot Chicken flew in some incredible graffiti artists from LA to paint the walls, bringing the true brand ethos to the venue, the same as the original stores back in US!

Dave’s Hot Chicken has come a long way from its roots in an East Hollywood parking lot to becoming America’s fastest growing restaurant chain back in May.Hot chicken enthusiasts can relish the “spiced-to-order” menu items consisting of fiery Hot Chicken Tenders and Sliders, along with sides of fries, creamy mac n’ cheese, house-made kale slaw and milkshakes.

Let’s talk about heat: Dave’s offers 7 different spice levels to choose from and depending on how many pieces of chicken you order; you can mix up the spiciness throughout your tray. At the bottom of the spice meter is “no spice”, which still brings some flavor with nothing to sweat over. The highest heat level labelled “Reaper” requires a signed waiver when ordering!

This second Dubai location is another step in the brand’s extensive regional expansion to the Middle East led by premium restaurant operator Lavoya, planning to bring a total of 31 Dave’s Hot chicken to 6 countries in the region, with Qatar’s first outlet set to open in only 2 weeks and Riyadh to follow in Q1 2023.

Walid Hajj, Co-Founder and CEO of Lavoya Restaurant Company shares, “Dave’s Hot Chicken is riding its red-hot momentum. We opened the first Dubai location on JBR  just a month ago, and in its first weekend, that store ranked #1 in all of the system world-wide in terms of sale.  I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish so far but there’s much more in store. This is only the beginning for our unique, exciting and craveable brand.”

Along with the opening of its second branch, the brand has also announced the launch of its delivery service, exclusively through Deliveroo.
