Chicken Shanty, a Medford,OR based chain of quick service chicken restaurants is expanding to the Inland Northwest, with their first location opening soon in Coeur d' Alene. The new restaurant will open in the former Sweeto Burrito space at 1423 W. Appleway, nearby Winco.
There isn't a set opening date for the Coeur d' Alene location just yet, but we reached out to the company, and we're told they hope to open there in about two weeks. They are also seeking to open another location in Spokane Valley but don't have space picked out for that store just yet. The chain currently has 17 locations in Oregon and elsewhere in Idaho, starting out as a drive thru food cart just three years ago.
Chicken Shanty points out they are considered craft chicken making most all of their ingredients from scratch using PNW ingredients. Their chicken they tell me comes from Red Bird Farms which are cage free, no antibiotics, steroids or hormones fresh chicken. Their menu consists of chicken baskets, wings, a few sandwich/wrap options and more. And, of course a handful of sauces are also available.
Indoor dining, take away and delivery via DoorDash, Grubhub,etc. will all be available once the business opens. And, for more information on Chicken Shanty including a look their menu visit their website at https://www.thechickenshanty.com
