Country’s Fastest-Growing Restaurant Comes to the State’s Capitol

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) – Dave’s Hot Chicken, the scrappy late-night pop-up turned hot chicken sensation, on August 1 announced the grand opening of its newest restaurant, and first in Sacramento, at 3409 Arden Way.

The new restaurant, opening Friday, August 5, will be open Sunday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. until 11:00 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. until 12:00 a.m. midnight. Dave Hot Chicken’s newest restaurant, located across the street from McDonald’s, features plentiful indoor seating and custom artwork throughout the restaurant.

“Dave’s Hot Chicken instantly stood out to us from the other chicken concepts that are out there,” said franchisee Martha Olmos. “They have a great innovative product that people love and continue to crave long after they first tried it. Our team is looking forward to the future with Dave’s Hot Chicken, and we believe strongly in becoming part of the fabric of the community and plan on supporting local nonprofits. We have a long history in Central and Northern California and are excited to bring Dave’s here.”

The fast-casual concept specializes in Hot Chicken Tenders and Sliders, along with sides of house-made Kale Slaw, creamy Mac n’ Cheese and crispy French Fries. Offered at seven various spice levels ranging from No Spice to Reaper™ (which requires a signed waiver for those who dare), each piece of juicy, hand-breaded chicken utilizes a proprietary spice blend crafted specifically for its heat level. The brand began a few years ago as a parking lot pop-up and drew lines around the block, with rave reviews by its fanatic Instagram followers. 

“Dave’s Hot Chicken will blow your mind! Every Tender is hot, juicy and spicy,” said Bill Phelps,

Dave’s Hot Chicken’s CEO. “Our founders started Dave’s as a parking lot pop-up restaurant in Hollywood with a portable fryer and picnic tables from their backyards just four short years ago.”

About Dave’s Hot Chicken

In a modern-day American dream story, Arman Oganesyan and best friend Chef Dave Kopushyan, along with brothers Tommy and Gary Rubenyan, launched Dave’s Hot Chicken in a parking lot pop-up in 2017. Dave’s Hot Chicken quickly took off, opening its first brick-and-mortar restaurant in East Hollywood. In 2019, the team struck a deal with Wetzel’s Pretzels co-founder and former CEO, Bill Phelps, and movie producer John Davis to begin franchising the Dave’s Hot Chicken concept throughout the U.S. and beyond.  The company has sold the rights to more than 700 franchise locations in the U.S. and Canada and will open an additional 25 locations this year. Harkening back to an Eater LA blog that helped propel early interest in the brand, the company’s mission is to “blow their minds.” Additional brand investors include former California First Lady Maria Shriver, Red Sox owner Tom Werner, actor Samuel L. Jackson, and Good Morning America anchor and retired NFL player Michael Strahan.
