film­maker brings restau­rant idea to Colum­bus

'Su­per Size Me'

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The maker of the doc­u­men­tary film "Su­per Size Me" is pre­par­ing to test out a new fast-food restau­rant con­cept in Colum­bus. Mor­gan Spur­lock is plan­ning a four-day, pop-up restau­rant called "Holy Chicken!" be­gin­ning Satur­day. He picked Colum­bus be­cause it's known for its role as a na­tional test mar­ket. Spur­lock calls the con­cept a "mis­sion-driven, farm-totable, all-nat­u­ral, Trans­pare Lo­ca­li­cious" (tranz-PAYR'-eh-loh-keh-LISH'-uhs) "chicken ex­pe­ri­ence."

Spur­lock's 2004 doc­u­men­tary was nom­i­nated for an Academy Award. The film chron­i­cled the detri­men­tal phys­i­cal and psy­cho­log­i­cal ef­fects of Spur­lock eat­ing only McDon­ald's food for 30 days. He says "Holy Chicken!" fea­tures sand­wiches and ten­ders made from nat­u­ral, free-range chick­ens, as well as lo­cally sourced and lo­cally pro­duced bev­er­ages.
