Say hello to Big Chicken, a restaurant chain owned by former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal.

Big Chicken is excited to announce its expansion to St. Louis, along with several other markets, within the next six weeks.

At Big Chicken, customers can enjoy a fusion of Shaq's home-cooked childhood favorites with trending flavors. The menu includes crispy chicken sandwiches and tenders, Cheez-It crusted mac n’ cheese, and hand-crafted ice cream shakes.

Big Chicken’s expansion to St. Louis comes as the company has teamed up with the Blue Origin nonprofit to feed people in need.

Shaquille O’Neal is proud of this partnership and is excited to take the chicken sandwich game to a whole new level.

In addition to St. Louis, Big Chicken is also planning to open Midwest sites in Kansas City and Chicago.

The location of the St. Louis Big Chicken restaurant is yet to be listed on the company's website. Keep an eye out for updates and stay tuned for the grand opening!
