The Whistle Stop is the New Home for Chicken Kitchen Chicken

Fried Chicken Geniuses Tiffany Kester and Angela and Kevin Beumer

Like most of you, I was pretty bummed when the good folks at the Chicken Kitchen II announced last year that they were closing for good just before the 2016 Great Darke County Fair. At the time, I thought to myself, man, if only they'd sell it to someone to take it over so that I could continue to enjoy that wonderful fried chicken.

Now, many months later, they have.

The Whistle Stop in Ansonia posted on their site yesterday that The Whistle is the new home for Chicken Kitchen Chicken.

The announcement comes after a lengthy process of acquiring the business, the needed equipment, and as much knowledge as possible from previous owners Kevin and Angela Beumer and their daughter Tiffany Kester. In their release, Kevin said he is "committed to making sure the recipe tastes the same," and that the transition is successful.

Also in the release, the Whistle clarified that they "currently... will be offering chicken after 3pm Monday through Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday until the dust settles.  Bulk orders can be requested to be ready at any time."

All of this is to say, this is the greatest food related news, and I can't wait to taste Chicken Kitchen Chicken again.
