Chickie’s and Pete’s Following Andy Reid to Kansas City

Chiefs coach Andy Reid misses Philly cuisine so much, he’s apparently requested Chickie’s and Pete’s install a branch right in his new backyard, in Kansas City, Missouri.

This year, a Chickie’s & Pete’s pavilion will debut at Worlds of Fun/Oceans of Fun, an amusement park operated by the company that owns Dorney Park. The Kansas City location will offer Crabfries, traditional and lobster cheesesteaks, and cheesesteak nachos. Pete is also in talks with the Kansas City Chiefs about a Chickie’s & Pete’s in Arrowhead Stadium.

Alright, Reid probably has nothing to do with it, but how else can you explain the demand for something like crab fries in a place completely devoid of seafood culture? That said, you might be able to trick Missourians into thinking those fries actually have a crustaceous element to them. [Foobooz]
