Prepare to forget everything you think you know about fried chicken. Admittedly, that might not be a lot but prepare to forget it all.
HERE’S HOW IT WENT DOWN…
PAT GRACE – 1970 – Canada
Pat befriends The Colonel in Toronto, Canada. They form a lifelong bond over their love for fried chicken – we’ve all got mates like that.
THE DUBLIN CONNECTION – 1970 – Ireland
Pat moves back to Ireland and opens his first Fried Chicken shop in Dublin using the spice blend for the chicken coating he learned from the Colonel.
RIP THE COLONEL – 1980 – Canada
He passes aged 90 and cost cutting measures and changes to the original recipe are implemented.
THE COLONEL’S LEGACY – 1983-present day – Ireland
Pat was keen to stick to the original formula – true to The Colonel’s legacy. He changed the name to Grace’s Fried Chicken and kept the same 12 spice blend. Legend.
THE INTERNET BREAKS – 2021 – Canada
Glen Powell, famous in the fried chicken world, releases a video explaining all of the above and breaks a very small, niche corner of the internet as people realise that a handful of outlets in Ireland are the only places to get true Fried Chicken.
SOUTHBANK CITY – 2022 – Nottingham
We secure the exclusive rights to use Graces Original blend as the coating for our fried chicken. So you now don’t need to travel to Ireland. Come get some at SBC.
