Arizona State University’s multipurpose arena, the Mullett Arena opening Friday, is welcoming Shaquille O’Neal-owned Big Chicken. The Mullett Arena, in Tempe, is the on-campus home of Sun Devil hockey team, as well as the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes.
“We’re thrilled to introduce Big Chicken to Arizona’s premier hockey destination and are confident it will be a BIG hit amongst students and fans alike,” Big Chicken CEO Josh Halpern said in a company press release. “With this being our fourth arena location, we plan to build on this momentum by continuing to grow our presence in high-profile venues across the country.”
Mullet Arena’s Big Chicken joins several other OVG properties including Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena, UBS Arena in New York and the Moody Center in Austin. Big Chicken offerings at the new Mullett Arena include the M.D.E. Chicken (Shaq Sauce, chicken breast and B&B pickles) and Uncle Jerome (Nashville hot chicken, mayo and pickles), in addition to other concessions items.
Additionally, Big Chicken has locations open in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, the Dayton, Ohio region and two Carnival Cruise Ships, with over 150 locations in its development pipeline.
