"A Chicken in Every Pot!"
Well, we now have a new President of the United States. This prompted me to explain the age old quote "A Chicken in Every Pot." This might be one of the most miss assigned quotes in political history. 
Four different Presidents have been credited with this quote. The most associated with this quote is Herbert Hoover in 1928. Well, Hoover never actually uttered this phrase but the Republican Party did use it in Hoover's campaign. They touted it as a period of prosperity that would provide "a chicken in every pot" and "a car in every backyard."

This was the moment that he and wife Amanda knew they must bring this unique food culture back to LA in what ultimately became the birth of the Howlin Rays Hot Chicken Tour.

For six months, The Howlin Rays Hot Chicken Tour introduced their version of Nashville Hot Chicken, via a food truck, to LA one stop and one customer at a time. The food truck allowed them to explore interest in the concept and see first-hand their customers' response to this traditional southern dish. The feedback was overwhelming and the lines were long as...
