The first of many Michigan Chicken Guy! restaurants is set to open in Livonia April 1, 2023 at 11a.m.

The new restaurant at 30130 Plymouth Road is the chain's eighth location.

There is a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11a.m. and then the doors will officially be open. Chicken Guy! will be honoring Livonia Fire and Police by offering them a free meal. They will be able to experience a sandwich and side dish of their choice, by simply showing their badge. This offer is valid on opening day, Saturday, April 1st.

In addition, throughout the day guests will have the chance to win various prizes and of course be the first in Michigan to try Chicken Guy!

The Livonia Chicken Guy! will be open daily 11a.m. to 9p.m.

According to the Detroit Free Press, 19 more Chicken Guy! locations are planned for the metro Detroit area over the next 10 years.

Fieri said in a release,

The people of The Motor City have spoken…I’m bringin’ my real deal chicken tenders, sandwiches, and shakes to Livonia. From shooting DDD to taking part in the Woodward Dream Cruise, the Detroit area has always been a go-to for me so I’m stoked for everyone to give us a try. See ya there!

Here's hoping Chicken Guy! expands to all of the Mitten State soon!
