According to WDAM, a restaurant chain owned by former NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal is coming to Mississippi!

The chain is called Big Chicken and was founded in 2018. It will be built in Hattiesburg.

WDAM reports that on Tuesday, the SRS Real Estate Partners in Birmingham, Ala. announced the sale of ±1.44 acres of land in Hattiesburg, to the chicken restaurant brand, Big Chicken.

SRS Birmingham said the site is located at 6042 U.S. Highway 98, adjacent to ALDI and Aspen Dental, and near Lowe’s Home Improvement and Walmart Supercenter.

This is the first location for Big Chicken in Mississippi. It will save fast-casual food fusing Shaquille O’Neal’s childhood favorites.

“Big Chicken serves crispy chicken sandwiches and tenders, Cheez-It® crusted mac n’ cheese and hand-crafted ice cream shakes and sundaes,” said the real estate group.

There are no details yet on when the restaurant will open.
