The Colonel vs. Flavor Flav

Chicken Wars

1/24/2011 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Flavor Flav opened his chicken joint in the wrong part of town -- cause the guy who owns the Kentucky Fried Chicken RIGHT NEXT DOOR says he's ready to go clock-to-clock for fried chicken supremacy.

0123_flavor_flav_chicken_tmz_exFlav's joint is set to open today in Clinton, IA -- the first of a planned chain of restaurants. But the new place just happens to be next to a KFC -- which just seems like awful planning, doesn't it?

Anyway, the guy who owns that KFC tells TMZ, "We've been in business since 1963, we always welcomed competition. We have competed with six or seven brands over that time and as long as we take care of The Colonel's chicken, we will be just fine."

Looks like we're in for one helluva chicken battle ... boyyyyyyeeeee!!!!!

I would love to see their business plan. 1. Piss off the competition by talking trash to the media. 2. Open up a run down Long John Silvers building next door to KFC. 3. Make millions of dollars in a small town of only 25,000 people which 1/2 of them are living off some type of state aid..........

Have you all watched the youtube videos of Flav making the chicken? He has his hands full of flower (not wearing gloves), he still is wearing his rings and has on his broke ass clock. Flav is seen tossing the chicken in the fryer then serving it to the public, not very sanitary. I sure hope they have good insurance.

How about his business partner, Nick Cimino, LOL! Dressed like a clown on their grand opening. Business owner wearing sweat pants and a sweatshirt, Classy!!

The only people who care about this are the ones that live in Clinton, IA. (As you can see from the majority of peopel commenting.)

I heard that years ago (70s I believe... maybe even the 60s) KFC was expanding and did an extensive survey on the ideal locations to put it's stores. Cost them tons of money but they felt it was worth it. Not long after, another chain decided to expand. Did they do a survey? Of course not. That is usually why you will find a McDonalds within a block of a KFC.
