In absolutely huge news for the Australian fast food industry, Red Rooster has announced it will be launching its own range of crunchy fried chicken.
According to the chicken chain, this fried chicken range is made from 100% Aussie chicken. It’s also completely fresh and not frozen.
Red Rooster’s crunchy fried chicken is touted as crunchy and golden on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. It’s also prepared fresh every day and cooked to order.
The announcement is in anticipation of Red Rooster celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022. However, this fried chicken range isn’t the only new thing coming to the fast food outlet — 2021 will see restaurant refurbishments, uniform upgrades, tech advancements and further menu changes at Red Rooster.
These new crunchy chicken offerings are launching Monday, March 8. The new menu is currently only available in select stores as it rolls out in 350 restaurants across the country.
The chicken is available in-store and some restaurants are also offering delivery. These are the stores where you can currently try this delicious new chicken snack:
