This is exciting! Get your mouths ready because it will be spicy. Dave's Hot Chicken is planning on opening a whole bunch of locations in Canada.

Dave's Hot Chicken, an L.A.-based chain, announced plans on May 15 to move up north thanks to a franchise agreement with Obelysk Foods Ltd., which is led by John Bitove, the founder of the Toronto Raptors.

With this expansion, 30 locations will open up in B.C. and Ontario.

However, that's just the initial focus.

"On a trip to L.A. with my daughter Blair Bitove, who went to USC, we visited Dave’s Hot Chicken, saw the line ups and passion the guests had, tried the incredibly flavourful food and knew this was a concept we needed to add to our portfolio,” said Bitove in a news release

Dave's Hot Chicken first opened as a pop-up in a parking lot back in 2017 before expanding to actual locations.

The concept behind it was to take Nashville hot chicken and make it better than anywhere else in the U.S.

Spice levels for the hot chicken tenders and sliders range from "no spice" to "reaper."

That sounds intense!

Each restaurant also offers house-made kale slaw, creamy mac 'n' cheese, crispy fries, or cheese fries for sides.

Whenever the new locations open, Canadians will be able to get a taste.

There are multiple locations in Southern California and the chain is expanding in the U.S. along with moving up to Canada.

"Dave's Hot Chicken will resonate with our customers in many ways by providing a variety of options including walk-up, delivery services and ultimately, in-restaurant seating when permitted," said Bitove's daughter Blair.

She's helping to develop the restaurant chain throughout Canada.

"This is a great product for Canadians who love flavourful food items," she said.

There haven't been any dates released for when the expansion to Canada will get underway.

Dave's Hot Chicken is looking for qualified and experienced restaurant operators and franchise groups to develop the brand here.
