What Is Big Chicken?

As their website indicates, the restaurant was heavily inspired by Hall of Fame basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal"

Founded in 2018, Big Chicken is backed by a dream team of partners; JRS Hospitality, an accomplished Las Vegas-based ownership group; Authentic Brands Group, a multi-national, multi-billion-dollar brand development, marketing and entertainment company; and Hall of Fame basketball star Shaquille O’Neal. Big Chicken fuses O’Neal’s home-cooked childhood favorites with today’s trending flavors. From crispy chicken sandwiches and tenders to Cheez-It® crusted mac n’ cheese and hand-crafted ice cream shakes, each menu item tells a story all while offering guests an inside look into the life and personality of Shaquille O’Neal.

Shaq was the player character in what has been called "one of the worst games ever made," but there are a lot of people out there who like his chicken, so this has to feel a little redeeming for the big man.
