VANCOUVER, BC (July 5, 2018) — This summer, the chicken doesn’t just cross the road — it heads across the city when Chinatown’s wildly popular Juke Fried Chicken takes its trademark fried-chicken-and-rib-joint concept to a second location at 1074 Davie Street in Vancouver’s vibrant West End.

Set to open later this summer, Juke’s new location will offer its signature southern-inspired menu as well as a few fun surprises in a fully licensed, counter-service spot that will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week as well as weekend brunch options.

To celebrate the news of the latest addition to the Juke family and the second anniversary of its launch, Juke is featuring a Fried Chicken Sandwich special at its original location at 182 Keefer Street on National Fried Chicken Day this Friday, July 6. Starting at 11 a.m., fried chicken fans can pick up Juke’s signature chicken sandwiches — made with gluten-free, free-range chicken marinated for 24 hours in buttermilk marinade and garnished with house-made barbecue sauce and slaw — in both regular and spicy varieties for just $3 each (normally $6.50) for dine-in and take-out service.

“Of course, National Fried Chicken Day is one of the biggest days of the year, at least on our calendar, so it’s the perfect time to reveal our plans to bring Juke to a new neighbourhood this summer,” says Justin Tisdall, who launched the restaurant with partners Chef Bryan Satterford and Cord Jarvie in 2016. “We can’t wait to celebrate a couple big milestones with our friends over some half-priced chicken sammies.”

Further details regarding Juke’s latest location, including food and drink menus, will be released in the coming weeks.
