This restaurant made a 'chicken zip line' for socially distanced orders

A restaurant in New Orleans is going

viral for the innovative way it’s managed

to serve its customers fried chicken .

while maintaining strict

social distance guidelines.

The eatery, called McHardy’s

Chicken & Fixin’, has been serving

customers with an inventive, DIY zip line.

The restaurant debuted its “distanced fried

chicken delivery” in April, when Louisiana was

still under a statewide stay-at-home order.

Local news outlets immediately began covering the inventive

pulley system, which allowed employees to hoist food from

the counter to customers standing a safe distance away.

“Zip line fried chicken?”

Ian McNulty, a food culture reporter

for Nola.com wrote on Instagram.

“Clothesline fried chicken? Whatever it is, the

contraption @mchardyschicken rigged up early

in the coronavirus crisis always makes me smile".

"Behind it though there’s a serious

message for small businesses like

this trying to get through these times".

Rahman Mogilles, who runs the eatery

with his family, told Nola.com that “you’ve

got to be creative” during times like these".

“Don’t come in between a

man and his fried chicken,” an

Instagram user joked on McNulty’s video

    The first time I ever tried a beauty subscription box, I was skeptical then pleasantly surprised. For one flat rate per month, I could get full-sized products of some of today’s leading beauty brands, some that I already knew and loved and others that had been on my radar but I hadn’t had time to try. A subscription box is wonderful for people like me who never can commit to just one product, preferring to try an assortment of items to find what really works for them.
