ATLANTA, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For years the happenings of the Compton community and its rich history have played out in some of the most popular TV shows and critically acclaimed films and documentaries. With some of the finest rappers and musicians in the history of our country coming straight out of Compton, Church's Chicken prides itself on being a staple in the community for 20 years.
As the brand that brought you the Fast Company documentary series, chronicling the story of extreme competitive drumming, Church's Chicken® is no stranger to the music scene itself. This month, the chicken giant returned to its musical affinity and to one of its most beloved communities, Compton, California.
Guests visited their neighborhood Compton location, purchasing the Compton Family Meal Deal. As a special thank you, the iconic brand gifted them with a limited edition, retro style Church's Chicken hat or t-shirt, reminiscent of an earlier decade that made Church's a household name in the Compton area.
"Church's mission starts with the community that it's built around," says Mark Snyder, Chief Marketing Officer for Church's Chicken. "Our chicken has been loved for 20 years in the Compton area. We know this community and are proud to be a part of it."
As part of this celebration, Church's Chicken was on-site to talk with the community about the brand's mention in a popular rap song. The Church's team celebrated a big night in music alongside their Compton crewmembers and fans. All of these videos are now featured on Church's Chicken® Twitter page.
"We're as big of fans of the people in this great city as they are of our fried chicken. Church's Chicken and Compton are truly part of each other's history," admits Snyder. "This community is incredibly passionate and supportive of its artists and the brands they love, and we're just thankful to be a part of it."
