The Red Chickz − the trendiest new Nashville hot chicken franchise – just wrapped up another successful Thanksgiving basket brigade event for the sixth consecutive year. After raising a total of $10,000, The Red Chickz leadership team, staff, and volunteers were able to donate 300 baskets of food to financially challenged families in their hometown of Los Angeles, California, for the holiday.
Each basket contained the essentials for a Thanksgiving feast such as turkey, stuffing, bread, vegetables, drinks, and desserts. 150 baskets were picked up by families at Centro de Ninos day care and the parking lot of Christian Assembly church in Eagle Rock and another 150 were delivered directly to their homes.
“We are so proud of the turnout for this year’s event and we are thankful for the staff and volunteers who made it happen,” says Shawn Lalehzarian, Founder of The Red Chickz. “It means the world to us to be able to give back to the Los Angeles community that we have been so lucky to call home and we are already looking forward to next year’s Thanksgiving Basket Brigade.”
The Red Chickz’s various menu items have caught the eyes of thousands on social media, leading it to become one of the most popular Tik Tok accounts in the restaurant industry with over one million followers. Whether it’s cutting into their crispy chicken tenders or artfully drizzling “Comeback Sauce” onto sandwiches, viewers can’t get enough. Their Instagram isn’t far behind, with over 100,000 followers liking and commenting on their posts of the chicken up close to show off every delicious detail.
The Red Chickz makes their Nashville hot chicken to order in six different spice levels and forms such as
sandwiches, tenders, wings, and tacos. Shrimp is also featured on the menu and can be tossed in the same spice mixtures. To accompany the mains, The Red Chickz also has some classic Southern staple sides like potato wedges and coleslaw, and makes their own “Comeback Sauce” to dunk in.
The Red Chickz brings Nashville to Los Angeles with their own version of the city’s famous food.
