Hot chicken chain Joella’s introduces Largo to its signature menu item this week

Best part? There’s a drive-through.

Your hot chicken cravings just got a lot easier to satisfy. The first Florida restaurant for Joella’s Hot Chicken, known for its Southern menu of signature hot chicken and house-made sides, will launch locally in Largo this week at 10150 Ulmerton Road.

Best part? There’s a drive-through.

A second drive-through location is scheduled to follow at 7893 113th St. in Seminole sometime this fall. The first 100 diners outside of the Largo restaurant at 8 a.m. Sept. 20, opening day, will nab free hot chicken for a year.

Joella’s hours of operation are 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Yep, Joella's Hot Chicken, coming to Largo, even does chicken and waffles spiced to your liking. [Joella's Hot Chicken]

“Bringing our flavorful hot chicken to Florida is something we’ve been looking forward to for quite a while,” said Christina Happel, regional vice president of operations for Joella’s, in a statement.

A fast-casual chain around since 2015 and headquartered in Louisville, Ky., Joella’s presents its chicken several ways — and as hot as you can handle. “Jumbo tenders” and “big wings,” for example, mingle with chicken and waffles spiced to your liking; choose from no heat, sweet and mild, “flavor with a little heat," medium heat, fiery heat and “waiver-worthy.”

Vegans even have a dish of their own: the soy-based “chicken" plate.

After Seminole, Joella’s is off to Melbourne to welcome its third restaurant in the Sunshine State.
