Bloomberg Businessweek: "Chick" Steals Chicken Crown from KFC...

Closed almost 2 months a year and operating with a fraction KFC's U.S. stores, Chick has hit $5 Billion in sales.  It appears that keeping "abreast" of things and maintaining a "leg" up on the competition has given them something to crow about.   One has to admit they're not just "winging" it.

    Exactly.
     
    Their food (and that of the very similar Raising Cane's) leaves me at 'meh'.  
     
    Fine dining dishes aside, I just don't much like boneless chicken in the fast food category.

    Tried Raising Cane's in Allen, TX.
     
    What's all the fuss about?  No choices except for quantity.

    I'd be interested to know how much Chicken McDonald sells.
    They have 30 Chicken Items on their menu!
    My guess would be they may sell as much as "Chick"
    http://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en/full_menu_explorer.html
    EDIT: I just found that McD's sells 37 MILLION Chicken McNuggets a DAY!" />" />
    That's 4 MILLION Chickens a DAY! AND that's just One Item on the Chicken Menu!
