Rotisserie Chicken: The Nation’s Favorite Fast Meal

November 19, 2017

In one year alone, 600 million rotisserie chickens were sold in the United States.  That’s 1.6 million every day.  That’s almost 2 chickens for every person in the country, including babies.  Its popularity goes back to the 1930s.  Pre and post war Americans were beginning the trend of going out for dinner, and grocery stores needed something quick, easy, and inexpensive to bring them back in.  Without lifting a finger, you could have chicken that had been slow cooked through the day, and ready to eat when you got home.  Add in a couple of side dishes, and you have a meal in minutes.  But, unlike other “fast” foods, the rotisserie chicken is fresh and tastes great!  Today, there are many options for fresh, store bought meals.  Fresh Madison Market has a whole department for that very thing.  But, if you really want something fast and simple, nothing wrong with the old favorite:  The Rotisserie Chicken.  Stop in this week, and we’ll give you a FREE rotisserie chicken when you purchase $17 or more.
