KFC Is Celebrating Its Massive New Meal by Transforming Its Entire Restaurant
You've got rap superstar Jack Harlow to thank for it.
Whatever hold Jack Harlow has on the general population, KFC has the same on him. The rapper is obsessed with the Southern-style fast food joint. If you've had the Fried Chicken Sandwich, you get it. And now, Kentucky Fried Chicken is releasing an exclusive menu with Harlow's go-to order.
Beginning June 6, KFC is dropping Jack Harlow's Kentucky Fried Favorites on the KFC app and site, including a Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Secret Recipe Fries, Extra Crispy Tenders, and a side of Mac & Cheese and biscuits.
"Partnering up with KFC feels like poetic justice. I've begun traveling the world, and no matter how far I go, KFC is one of the first things people want to bring up when they find out where I'm from," Harlow said in a press release. "I'm excited to align myself with something that started in Kentucky, but resonates all over the globe. I grew up going to the restaurant with my family, here are a few of the menu items I've been enjoying since I was a child."
To celebrate the Jack Harlow Meal, KFC is transforming an Atlanta outpost into Jack's Meal HQ. Located at 2637 Cobb Pkwy SE, Smyrna, Georgia, fans will be able to get a "first-class" taste of the custom meal while listening to the rapper's new album and snapping pics. The event, which is happening on Saturday, June 4, also promises surprises throughout the day.
"When KFC asked me to create my own meal, I knew it couldn't be just any meal," Harlow added. "My meal brings together my childhood favorites from growing up in Louisville, the KFC Mac & Cheese, with my new go-to Spicy Chicken Sandwich (with plenty of ranch), Secret Recipe Fries, and lemonade—it doesn't get much better."
Harlow recently visited his hometown of Louisville to meet with KFC's Head Chef Chris Scott for a little behind-the-scenes before chowing down on his very own menu exclusive.
"It goes without saying that our classics will never go out of style, but as Jack's favorites, a few of them are getting celebrity status," KFC CMO Nick Chavez said in the release. "We are excited to make Jack's favorites available now on the KFC app, and can't wait to share what's next with Jack Harlow and KFC. Stay tuned. You won't want to miss it."
The meal previously launched (sort of, at least) in March, but as a collection of his favorite items on the menu sold separately and available as a digital exclusive. Now, you can get the full meal together online, via the app, or in stores.
