Hot Chicken Takeover – Get in my belly

If you haven’t heard of them yet you will soon, especially if you live in downtown Columbus apartments.

Hot Chicken Takeover (HCT) literally took over (pun intended) Columbus, Ohio with the highly viewed and participated in Kickstarter campaign. HCT was hugely successful and raised enough funding for a mobile trailer. HCT didn’t want to go the food truck route but instead wanted to be able to take their trailer to different neighborhoods like Grandview Heights, Dublin, and other cities near Columbus and “takeover” for a few days.

But the news gets even better as HCT is taking over right across the street from the Arena Crossing apartments to North Market. The temporary opening is on the upstairs portion of the market in the North Market Kitchen space. Their Olde Towne East location has a few more weeks until its last day on Nov. 23. Their North Market space will then soft launch in December, open on Friday and Saturday.

“I have personally been following Joe and the buzz he has created with Hot Chicken Takeover not only in Columbus but nationally through his Kickstarter campaign,” said North Market Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe in a release. “His story is inspiring and his business is local and best-in-class and that is what we are always looking for to compliment the merchant mix at the market.”

The location in North Market will be temporary though as owner Joe DeLoss looks for a permanent location.
