“We are so humbled and excited to bring this concept to Houston, not only because I grew up not far from here, but because Houston is well known for its diversity and food scene,” Webb said. “We look forward to serving the residents of Heights and beyond by delivering accessible, chef-led fried chicken sandwiches, while honoring our commitment to sustainability and creating a warm and welcoming environment for all.
