In Celebration of National Hot Chicken and Due to an Outpouring of Support from Guests, Fried Chicken Sandwiches are Here to Stay at All Farmer Boys Locations

Riverside, Calif. (March 30, 2021) – In honor of National Hot Chicken Day, March 30, Farmer Boys®, the Southern California-based fast casual concept known for its award-winning burgers, cook-to-order menu, and friendly service, is permanently adding Fried Chicken Sandwiches to its menu at all locations across California, Nevada, and Arizona. The Classic Fried Chicken Sandwich and a Fiery Fried Chicken Sandwich were instant favorites with Farmer Boys fans upon their debut in November 2020.

Farmer Boys’ fried chicken sandwiches are made with USDA all natural chicken, free of added hormones and steroids, that is double dipped in a batter seasoned with garlic, onion, and paprika, and then fried to lock in the flavor and ensure maximum crispiness. The Classic includes mayonnaise and pickles on a brioche bun for the perfect homestyle sandwich, while the Fiery adds Fiery Farmer’s Sauce to elevate the heat and add a kick.

“The combination of Farmer Boys’ well-known, high-quality taste paired with classic comfort food is hard to beat,” said Larry Rusinko, vice president and chief marketing officer for Farmer Boys. “We were astonished by the instant popularity of our Fried Chicken Sandwiches. We quickly learned that our guests didn’t want them flying the coop anytime soon! We’re excited to offer our Fried Chicken Sandwiches permanently, and just in time for a National Hot Chicken Day celebration.”

For 40 years, Farmer Boys has set the standard for serving high quality, farm fresh food in a fast casual setting. The menu consists of award-winning burgers, cooked-to-order breakfast served all day, hand-chopped salads, specialty sandwiches, and more, all prepared with quality ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible. Produce is delivered fresh and whole to each restaurant every morning, meaning it doesn’t sit in a warehouse for weeks and can be enjoyed at its pinnacle of crispness and flavor.
