With a continued focus on what makes every meal special, Bob Evans Restaurants introduced its new Hand-Breaded Crispy Fried Chicken. Bob and his wife, Jewell, knew that each guest was a treasure and took the time to create meals that brought together farm-fresh ingredients and farmhouse kitchen cooking. Each new chicken dish is hand-breaded using five steps and prepared special for each guest, creating fresher, crispier and juicier chicken. Bob Evans Restaurants is using 100 percent all white meat, U.S. family farm raised chicken to pay homage to its roots in the farming community. The new Hand-Breaded Fried Chicken dishes are available all day with an assortment of farmhouse sides.
In addition to the Hand-Breaded Fried Chicken dishes, Bob Evans is introducing indulgent new Honey Butter Chicken & Biscuit dishes, featuring real clover honey and flaky buttermilk biscuits. Clover honey is made by honeybees that collect the nectar of clover plants and it has a sweet mildly floral taste making it one of the most popular varieties. Bob Evans’ uses 100 percent Grade A honey from Deer Creek Honey Farms in London, Ohio, just a short drive from the birthplace of Bob Evans, the Bob Evans farmstead in Rio Grande, Ohio. Bob Evans’ famous biscuits are made with real buttermilk and wheat flour to ensure a flaky texture and are oven-baked throughout the day to ensure freshness.
“Bob Evans originated from a family farm in rural Ohio, so partnering with family farms to introduce these new chicken dishes gives us an opportunity to bring our guests even closer to the core of who we are as a brand,” says Saed Mohseni, chief executive officer for Bob Evans Restaurants. “At Bob Evans, we work hard every day to bring America’s Farm Fresh to our guests and these Hand-Breaded Fried Chicken dishes are a new extension of our longstanding commitment to using farm-fresh ingredients.”
“Down on the farm, we know everything is better handmade— that’s why we take the time to hand-bread each chicken breast for every order because that extra effort gives the chicken a better, farm-fresh taste that guests will crave,” says Bob Holtcamp, chief marketing officer for Bob Evans Restaurants. “With these new dishes, it’s nice to give our customers something they can get excited about right now. We’re also catering to the reality of today’s dining experience by offering Family-Size options for guests who wish to utilize our carryout, curbside pickup or delivery offerings.”
