Dave’s Hot Chicken is the ultimate parking lot success story

The former late-night hot chicken pop-up has become one of the fastest growing chains in the country, thanks to a simple, popular menu and a lot of social media.

The high-tech chicken chain added an experienced leader as it looks to double its footprint next year.

Chicken is also a theme, and there’s something here for vegans and robot lovers.

Snap-O-Razzo gained a cult following selling hot dogs online. The digital restaurant company wants to take it further.

Three friends are building a fast-casual brand around oblong pizza, music, art and outrageous cinnamon rolls.

This offshoot of the full-service Tony Roma’s barbecue brand is designed for nontraditional and smaller spaces.
