Kennedy Fried Chicken
Kennedy Fried Chicken and Crown Fried Chicken are common restaurant names primarily in the New York-New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Baltimore areas of the United States, but also in nearby smaller cities or towns along the Northeastern United States.

He and Silvey obtained an SBA loan which they used to open the first restaurant in Baton Rouge at the intersection of Highland Road and State Street near the LSU campus.[2][3] Many restaurants switched from dine-ins to pick-up and take away in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, while others closed completely
