Prince's Hot Chicken Mon, 03/11/13 7:32 PM (permalink)
In Nashville,  Prince's no longer fries their hot chicken in cast iron skillets.  Due to increasing demand, they have switched to deep fryers in an effort to cut down on waiting time.

      Not that I am aware of. It just takes more time than people are willing to wait, I guess.   There is also talk about Prince's getting a license for on-premises beer sales.  They are also thinking about franchising, but I don't really see that happening.

          I was in Nashville this past weekend and made a visit to Prince's at 10:30 on Saturday night.  The place was crazy, the wait was a little over anhour and I made the mistake or ordering "hot".  I should have stuck with my usual "medium" order.  I ate a chicken wing and couldn't eat another thing.
          I wondered about deep fryers but didn't really look that closely in the kitchen.  Personally, I thought the chicken at Bolton's was a tad better.

            400 degrees is looking to franchise too.
            Only 10K for a franchise (and all the chicken you can eat)

                  I ate at Prince's back in February after the glee club meeting. I was impressed by the size of the cast iron skillets. Not so much by the food.
