NBA legend Shaq opens latest Big Chicken restaurant in Islanders’ $1.5 billion arena

Four NBA-title winner Shaquille O’Neal is not done with being a legend. He is out to conquer new food markets as he sells chicken sandwiches in locations across the nation. Shaq is the co-founder of a restaurant franchise called Big Chicken. Earlier, it had opened restaurants in Las Vegas, Nevada and Glendale, California

Recently, Shaq has been bringing his restaurants to sports arenas. Big Chicken now has a restaurant at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle. This is the home of the Kraken, which is the newest team in the National Hockey League (NHL).

According to CNBC, on Thursday, the basketball icon visited the UBS Arena inside which it will sell its fried chicken sandwiches. The arena is the $1.5 billion new home of NHL’s New York Islanders. The first game will take place on November 20 and the Islanders will play against the Calgary Flames.

Shaq smilingly said “Section 206” as he faced local TV cameras. This is the location of Big Chicken in the UBS Arena. After the tv crew departed Shaq told CNBC that it was “his ritual” and added, “Fried chicken with cheese, pickles and hot sauce.”

The 2016 NBA Hall of Fame inductee started the Big Chicken brand from scratch with friend Matt Silverman and agent Perry Rogers. He is the owner of several franchises of Papa John’s and is also on the company’s board.

Shaq also told the outlet that opening quick service restaurants (QSR) was a passion since his time at the Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. He also said that they did “some things differently.” He added that they “used a higher-end chicken” that was “antibiotic-free, cage-free and hormone-free.” He said that they were “about getting a higher value for the money.”

Some of the sandwiches on Big Chicken’s menu are as follows:

Uncle Jerome–named after Shaq’s uncle
Charles Barkley–in honor of the former NBA star
MDE–most dominant ever, a nod to Shaq’s career at the LA Lakers.

CNBC reported that Shaquille O’Neal “was first-team all NBA eight times and finals most valuable player three times.” He completed “his career with 15 All-Star Game appearances and one MVP trophy.” In October, he was named as one of the greatest 75 players ever, as NBA celebrates its 75th season.
