I feel I’m the one participant who seems to be at every middle and says to myself, ‘That’s barbecued rooster down there.” –Shaquille O’Neal

Drumroll please… 

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal’s Massive Hen is opening in Orlando in late 2023, as famous on the web site. 

Famous in a 2022 article, the company signed a 45-unit franchising deal with Florida-based business hospitality improvement firm DMD Ventures, which suggests Massive Hen areas in Tampa Bay, Orlando, West Palm Seaside, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami. 

Step apart lobster, shrimp, and oysters – Massive Hen is within the Home. 

Along with the handfuls of areas deliberate for Central and South Florida, Massive Hen additionally made a recent franchising deal with Panhandle Restaurant Group to carry over 40 areas to the northern half of the state. 

Big Chicken in Los Vegas features a full-service bar with native beers, a “backyard-style” gaming space, and on-line ordering.”

Historical past of Shaq’s Massive Hen 

Based in 2018, Massive Hen is a joint effort from Las Vegas-based JRS Hospitality, advertising and improvement firm Genuine Manufacturers Group, and Shaq himself. There are at the moment over 200 Massive Hen areas being developed throughout the nation, alongside Florida’s franchises. 

Sorry to be a downer, however I ask you: Does America want yet one more restaurant model specializing in rooster?  

Sure, jobs are welcomed, however will Massive Hen pay a good wage with advantages and perks? The profession part advertises: 

  • Nice pay 
  • Versatile schedules  
  • Massive enjoyable tradition 
  • Meal low cost 
  • Profession alternatives  

What’s nice pay to Shaq will not be nice pay to employees. A enjoyable tradition is cool, however enjoyable doesn’t pay the payments.  

After I labored at a pizza restaurant chain in my school days, employees have been allowed one free meal per shift. How massive is the Massive Hen low cost for workers? Chick Little-sized or Foghorn Leghorn-sized.  

Every state units a minimal age for workers that work in eating places or bars that serve alcohol. Florida’s minimal age is eighteen as reported on the web site of the Alcohol Policy Information System.  

Nevertheless, Massive Hen’s work software on the web site requests ages 21+ apply. So, no jobs for top schoolers or youthful school college students. However future Massive Hen eateries could take into account completely different age necessities for every state. 

Chickens Raised for Meat 

Learn how chickens raised for meat – known as broilers – are usually raised and produced in the USA. Chicken Check In is from the Nationwide Hen Council (NCC). 

CHICKEN TRENDS – MARCH 17, 2023 by US Foods. In keeping with the Nationwide Agricultural Statistics Service, broiler growers in the USA weekly program positioned 186 million chicks for meat manufacturing in the course of the week ending March 11, 2023, down barely from a 12 months in the past.  

But do people eat roosters? “Whereas it isn’t widespread in western cultures, rooster meat is broadly consumed in different elements of the world…On common, roosters don’t produce as a lot meat as customary broiler chickens, that are plump and tender… Rooster meat tends to be more durable and stringier than hen meat, making it tougher to course of…Protecting a number of roosters in a flock is a recipe for catastrophe as a result of their aggressive tendencies trigger them to battle one another.” 

I assume no rooster sandwiches at Massive Hen locations. 

Are Hen Processing Crops Going through Foul Instances? 

 Duh duh duhhh…the plot chickens. 

Tyson Foods will shut two rooster crops in Could, 2023, affecting practically 1,700 workers, as reported by CNBC

Since 2017, greater than 250,000 meat chickens and 1.8 million hens have been killed in barn fires. Birds die in such massive numbers on account of factory-farming practices that confine tens to a whole lot of hundreds of animals beneath one roof. 

Again to Shaq – the Massive Rooster. 

In 2021, O’Neal bought his lake-front home near Orlando, Florida, for $11 million. 

O’Neal’s new house is positioned in Carrollton, Texas, a suburban group exterior the town of Dallas.  

What about Big Chicken eateries in Texas? There’s one in Austin with plans for one in Houston and one other in Richmond. 

I’m Superman. And the one factor that may kill Superman is Kryptonite. And Kryptonite doesn’t exist.” –Shaquille O’Neal
