Morgan Spurlock, the director of Academy Award-nominated “Super Size Me,” is set to open his own fast food restaurant called Holy Chicken! on November 19 in Columbus, Ohio.
“Super Size Me” is a documentary film featuring Spurlock himself. In the film, Spurlock ate only McDonald’s food for a 30-day period.
The film exposed the dangers of processed fast food and helped phase out the Super Size option of McDonald’s.
Holy Chicken! is out to prove that fast food doesn’t have to be unhealthy.
“Everything about the food is made and backed with integrity and openness including closing the loop in sustainability by raising our own chickens,” the company said in a statement. “The food is not only hormone-free, its antibiotic-free, cage-free, free-range, farm-raised, humanely-raised and 100 percent natural.”
Holy Chicken!’s signature dish is The Grilled Crispy Chicken Sandwich and the menu also includes the Lil’ Cluckers Chicken Tenders for kids. The dishes are made from 100 percent natural and locally sourced free-range chickens while the beverages are also locally produced.
