Chick’nCone Opening Up in Grand Rapids

This past summer we told you that West Michigan's first Chick’nCone location would be opening at 2090 Celebration Drive NE, Suite 124...

We now know when that will be!

The fast-casual restaurant chain was launched in 2014 by Jonathan Almanzar and Josh Lanier in Colorado and then New York.

Primarily a food-truck and catering concept to start, the chain has grown to 24 brick-and-mortar locations across the U.S. and even in Dubai!

This will be West Michigan's first Chick'nCone restaurant. The other Michigan location is on the east side of the state in Madison Heights.

Chick'nCone's first brick and mortar location in New York City got a lot of media buzz and overall the chain has gotten a lot of attention, being called a "viral sensation" for its Instagrammable menu items.

Maybe you've seen Chick'nCone on the Food Network:

What Kind of Food Does Chick'nCone Serve?

Well, as you might have guessed, chicken in a cone! Crispy fried chicken is tossed with your choice of sauce and served in a hand-rolled waffle cone.
