Big Chicken, founded by basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, is opening in Carson City and Minden, Nevada, as part of a six-unit agreement with Damon Kreizenbeck, a Firehouse Subs franchisee.
“We were fortunate to have secured two prime locations to open our first Big Chicken restaurants in Carson City and Minden. Since signing the leases, we’ve been beyond excited to share the announcement,” Kreizenbeck said in a company press release. “As a Northern Nevada resident for the last 33 years, I’m confident that Big Chicken will quickly become a go-to lunch and dinner spot for residents as well as for those passing through. There’s nothing else in the area that brings BIG flavor, BIG food and BIG fun quite like Big Chicken.”
“Damon’s prior restaurant ownership experience and knowledge of the market have been instrumental as we’ve worked together to expand Big Chicken in Northwest Nevada,” Big Chicken CEO Josh Halpern said in the release. “We’re happy to celebrate alongside him and his family with each new milestone, including his first signed leases in Carson City and Minden. We’re proud to have him as part of our team.”
Big Chicken in Carson City and Minden will add to the 250-plus locations in development nationwide for the brand.
