Just Do It

Editor's Note

Fried chicken from a gas station? No thanks. That ranks up there with sushi on an airplane. Not happening.

At least that’s what I thought before I tried it.

I got my first taste of Krispy Krunchy Chicken recently when they served as one of the vendors at New Orleans Magazine’s Tops of the Town event January 22.
It was not only good, of all the amazing vendors at the event that night, I admit that Krispy Krunchy’s table was the only one I shamelessly returned to at least three times.

And apparently I’m not alone in thinking so. Since 1989, this convenience store chicken chain, founded in Lafayette, has grown to well over 2,000 locations nationwide. With 300 in Louisiana, you’re bound to have one nearby. I tell you, the honey butter biscuits alone are worth tossing any preconceived notions aside and just going for it.

And on that note, if you’ve been “just going for it” a bit too much during carnival season have I got a business for you – only if you’re really serious about getting in shape though.

City newcomer Iron Tribe Fitness isn’t your typical gym. They aren’t interested in signing you up for $50 a month whether you ever go or not. They’re going to hold you accountable, they’re going to give you plenty of personal attention, and, most importantly, they’re going to get you in shape. With membership limited to just 300, though, you had better move fast.

With Mardi Gras over, it’s now time to switch into Jazz Fest mode. Our April issue will look at the business side of this musical institution, along with a glimpse into what’s new at the Louis Armstrong International Airport – the first impression so many tourists will have of our fine city as they arrive ready to rock.
As always, we’re here to serve you, so don’t hesitate to send any ideas, events and openings our way – Editorial@BizNewOrleans.com.

Thanks for reading!
