Move over, Raising Cane’s, a new chicken tender giant has entered the chat. Chicken Boss, a new restaurant from the same team behind Bacon Boss, will soon debut at the massive KRATE at The Grove shopping and dining destination in Wesley Chapel. The owners of Bacon Boss took to social media to make the announcement.

“We’re so excited to announce that Bacon Boss is opening a second restaurant at the Krates. Introducing… The Chicken Boss,” the restaurant posted on Instagram. “Our menu is going to be centered on hand breaded chicken tenders.” Bacon Boss specializes in massive bacon burgers, jumbo fried onion rings, hot dogs covered in bacon crumbles, and of course just old school platters of crispy, wavy bacon. The menu also goes heavy on the Bleu cheese.


There’s no opening timeline for The Chicken Boss just yet. Each restaurant/business at KRATE operates out of small, mural-covered shipping containers, and the turnaround time from announcement to opening is typically swift. We imagine eager diners won’t have to wait too long for this new chicken tender staple to debut.

Since opening, KRATE has become a hotspot in the ever-growing Wesley Chapel community. Its always anticipated Night Market, Market Elaine, brings more than 120 vendors to the neighborhood the first Friday of each month. KRATE organizers have also put out a consistent volume of community-oriented events, including group yoga, live music performances, movie screenings, and watch parties, to bring both residents and tourists to the area.


An official menu hasn’t been released yet by The Chicken Boss, but their motto, “We’re the Cock of the Walk,” lets us know this spot is definitely going to pack a spicy punch. This culinary team has already proved their poultry prowess with their popular fried chipotle bbq wings. Chicken Boss is on Instagram and Facebook if you want to follow along ahead of its KRATE debut.

KRATE at The Grove is located at Wesley Grove Blvd in Wesley Chapel
