Our Story

So, Who is J. Walken?

That’s a simple question with a complex answer. J. Walken is a bit of a legend, an unlikely hero, a bold soul who’s always been 100% sure that life’s just not as interesting if you stay on the straight and narrow. J. Walken blazes his own trail and doesn’t care one bit about what other people think. He’s the kind of guy that still uses a flip phone because he likes it, can save a family of 5 from a burning building one-handed, wears white after Labor Day and knows how to bake a birthday cake from scratch. He’s all about the freedom to choose your own path without apology. The stuff America is made of.

That’s the J. Walken we know. His independent spirit is the force behind the brand that bears his name: rejecting the idea that a convenience store meal can’t be delicious, that a quality sandwich has to be expensive, or that the longer food takes to prepare, the better it tastes.

We believe that no matter where you live, you should be able to get a seriously good, dang quick meal and be on your way with a smile on your face and a belly full of really, really good chicken. That’s why we’re bucking the system, J. Walken style, by putting real, delicious, high-quality, un-fussy chicken and uncommon sides in off-the-beaten path places. And we’re not about to box you in with flavor— you have the power to personalize your poultry six ways from Sunday with seven lip-smackin’ sauces, ranging from sweet and savory to hot and spicy and everything in between.

We want the J. Walken inside of you to rebel with us. We want you to sink your teeth into something better, something uncommon, a best-kept-secret you’ll come back for again and again.

Reject the Expected.
