As the school year winds down and testing mayhem kicks in, teachers need a little extra fuel. Kickin' Chicken, beloved local franchise, understands this. Between May 1 and June 5 of this year they served more than 1,000 meals to teachers from 11 area schools via their bright yellow "Chicken Coupe."

Since the Kickin' teacher appreciation initiative began in 2012, the poultry slingin restaurant has served more than 3,000 teachers from 40 schools, donating a whopping 21,000 chicken nuggets. Co-owner of Kickin' Chicken Bobby Perry says that, "One of the best things we can do as a company is show our appreciation to those who sacrifice so much to our children."

In addition to this month-long initiative, the restaurant works year-round with seven area schools by hosting spirit nights, donating the food truck, and providing free nuggets to students on the honor roll. In July, the restaurant will kick-off a Teacher's Supply Closet fundraiser at all five locations in advance of the 2017-18 school year.

For the rest of us not in the education profession, we'll have to make do with Kickin' Chicken's new location at 349 W. Coleman Blvd. With a huge indoor/outdoor bar, plasma TVs, and a game room for the kids, it's the perfect pit-stop to or from the beach.
