Princes Hot Chicken started a meat cult that has all along been been emulated from all regions of the world and is likely coming your way

Heads turn as Andre Prince Jeffries- silver-tongued bangles jingling and cane in hand -makes her acces towards her reserved table at Nashville’s premiere red-hot chicken joint, Prince’s Hot Chicken.

Since her early thirties, Jeffries , now 72, has been at the helm of the poultry empire that starteda trend for cheek burning, tear-inducing fried chicken that has spread around the world.

Before Jeffries slots herself in her regular tush, facing the crowd of believers, a woman she doesn’t know steps up to her and mutters,” Thank you for being a national treasure .”

Jeffries beams.
