Chef Dave Kopushyan and three friends opened the first Dave’s Hot Chicken as a parking lot pop-up in early 2017. A self-described “spice freak,” Kopushyan fell in love with the flavor profile of Nashville Hot Chicken and wanted to bring that experience to Los Angeles natives. Dave’s Hot Chicken quickly took off, opening its first brick-and-mortar restaurant in East Hollywood and two more locations in North Hollywood and Koreatown. Now, Dave’s Hot Chicken is focused on bringing its crave-able tenders and sliders to communities throughout the country.
