Delaware North Sportservice’s team at MetLife Stadium was on to something when it hatched the Fat Rooster chicken concept in its concessions lineup in 2017.
The Fat Rooster is a proprietary Southern-inspired quick-service concept serving fresh, made-to-order buttermilk-soaked chicken. The signature “Spicy Chicken Sandwich” gets its bold flavor from a proprietary blend of spices and is served with house-made pickles and coleslaw. The menu also includes decadent chili-cheese waffle fries covered in rich cheddar cheese sauce and Angus beef chili–and crowd-pleasing chicken tenders served with honey mayonnaise.
After its success at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, the concept was adapted and expanded to other sports venues, including Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, and also to Wembley Stadium in London. With fans’ growing appetite for chicken, the Fat Rooster will soon roll out to other Delaware North locations.
