TAMPA, Fla., April 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Checkers & Rally's, the iconic drive-thru restaurant franchise that has been serving up bold flavors and exceptional value to its ever-growing fanbase for more than three decades, is taking the QSR chicken sandwich wars to the next level. From April 5 through May 16, 2021, the brand is serving up a new version of their Mother Cruncher Chicken Sandwich, now topped with sweet, indulgent candied bacon.
Checkers & Rally's Classic Mother Cruncher™ chicken sandwich made its debut last summer and quickly became one of the brand's best-selling sandwiches. The Mother Cruncher's "mega crunch" breading and creamy, signature Squawk Sauce® raised the bar for deliciousness in the QSR space.
Now, the Candied Bacon Mother Cruncher takes the Mother Cruncher's extra-crispy, all-white-meat fried chicken breast and tops it with brown-sugar-candied bacon, swiss cheese, creamy mayo and crispy onion tanglers, all served on a toasted, bakery-style bun.
"We are all about creating wins for guests, and this new premium LTO does just that," said Dwayne Chambers, CMO of Checkers & Rally's. "The Mother Cruncher Chicken Sandwich has been a huge hit, so we asked ourselves, 'how can we make this even more exciting?' The answer was candied bacon — an ingredient that is trending in popularity across casual dining chains, but seldom seen at quick-service restaurants. The Candied Bacon Mother Cruncher was tested with focus groups, who raved about the sandwich, and we can't wait for our guests to try it."
For an even sweeter treat, Checkers & Rally's is also launching their new Fruity Freeze Slushies this month, combining the icy smooth texture of a slushie with bright fruit flavors. Guests can choose Strawberry or Mango flavors, and both are topped with real mango pieces.
And because Checkers & Rally's remains committed to offering everyday wins to its fans, members of the free Checkers & Rally's Rewards Program who order on our website or through the Checkers & Rally's Rewards App will enjoy a $0 delivery fee when they spend $15 or more, now through May 16 at participating locations.*
