The Louisiana chain opened its first area store last month in the Geneva Walmart. Krispy Krunchy Chicken serves fried chicken with sides like mashed potatoes, red beans and rice, and macaroni and cheese. Its slogan is “Freshly made, perfectly Cajun.” Since its founding in 1989, the chain has spread to more than 2,700 locations in 47 states, mostly in convenience and grocery stores. The Auburn Citizen reports eleven of those stores, all in Walmarts, are operated by ADS Concepts, of Interlaken. The Auburn and Geneva restaurants are the first in New York State. The rest are in Florida, Arizona and Arkansas. The Interlaken company has as another 31 Krispy Krunchy Chickens in construction, and hopes to have opened 100 by the end of 2024.
