Re-vamp includes curbside service pick-up and family picnic packs to-go

“Pinellas County has embraced our hot chicken brand, along with our Southern hospitality and family-friendly atmosphere, and we look forward to being a part of the community again," says Christina Happel, regional vice president of operations for Joella’s Hot Chicken.

Joella’s Hot Chicken, a Louisville-based fast-casual restaurant featuring hot chicken and made-from-scratch sides, will re-launch their Seminole restaurant on Wednesday, September 2nd, unveiling new menu items, additional service capabilities, and offering their best deal on the company’s famed jumbo chicken meal.

Attending the grand reopening ceremony and ribbon-cutting event will be Mayor Leslie Waters, Vice Mayor Chris Burke, City Councilors, representatives from the Seminole Chamber of Commerce, along with other business and community leaders. “I am thrilled to be a part of the grand re-opening of Joella’s and looking forward to seeing this restaurant as a thriving part of our community again. Our office is actively committed to engaging with businesses and moving Seminole’s economy forward,” said Mayor Waters.

With a location eight minutes away in Largo, the Seminole restaurant closed in an effort to streamline operations and prioritize safety measures during the unprecedented pandemic. The much-anticipated re-opening accommodates customers’ needs for safety with the addition of curbside pick-up and takeaway meal packs that can “feed the flock”.

“We took some time to evaluate how we could meet the changing needs of our customers in an effort to give them the hand-crafted comfort food they craved and also a dining experience they would enjoy. The family picnic packs were born out of our desire to offer our guests more ways to enjoy our fresh, all-natural chicken and made-from-scratch sides in the comfort of their own home,” says Christina Happel, regional vice president of operations for Joella’s Hot Chicken. “Pinellas County has embraced our hot chicken brand, along with our Southern hospitality and family-friendly atmosphere, and we look forward to being a part of the community again.”

As part of the grand opening celebration, Joella’s will be offering their jumbo tenders meal special for only $5.99 all day long. The special includes two jumbo chicken tenders, one Southern side, one dippin’ sauce, and a drink. Customers can choose from one of six heat levels for the juicy tenders from no-heat Sothern to the waiver-worthy Fire-in da-Hole, for the super adventurous. The tenders can be ordered grilled and gluten-free or vegan style for customers with sensitivities or taste preferences.
