Louisiana Life has chosen Krispy Krunchy Chicken’s Dan Shapiro and Neal Onebane as Louisianians of the Year.
Shapiro and Onebane were chosen because of their impact on their industry on a local, national and international level, as well as the communities in which they live.
“To be given such an honor is humbling, to say the least. This started with my passion for quality food in convenience stores and has turned into a national phenomenon of chicken fanatics. It’s been quite the journey and as we expand internationally, I am excited for the future of our company,” said Neal Onebane, founder of Krispy Krunchy Chicken.
“The key to our success is that no matter where you visit, you will eat a quality meal. We take the loyalty of our customers very seriously and we do everything we can to ensure that their expectations are met every time. It is this core philosophy that has allowed for our unprecedented growth over the past 18 years and 900,000 pounds of chicken to be cooked every week, ” said Dan Shapiro, Krispy Krunchy Chicken’s executive vice president.
