About

The Skechers Chicken Sandwich refers to a fried chicken sandwich served at the only Skechers store that has a food court in the United States. The Skechers food court is called the Skechers Food Spot located at the Skechers Warehouse Outlet in Gardena, California. Overall, it closely resembles a Costco food court. The chicken sandwich from Skechers gained predominant meme attention in early 2024, following a viral review of the sandwich from TikToker @shophocho who compared it to Chick-fil-A's chicken sandwich, subsequently adding it to the ongoing Popeye's vs. Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich Debate.

History

In May 2023, the SKECHERS Warehouse Outlet store in Gardena, California opened an outside food court called The Food Spot.[1][2] Local news outlet KTLA first reported on the store in September 2023, describing it as a "Costco-style" food court (famously known for the Costco Hot Dog and other items). KTLA spoke with Michael Greenberg, the president and co-founder of Skechers, who said, "I always thought, 'Wouldn’t it be fun to have a food concession at the Gardena store?' It does a tremendous amount of volume and has a lot of foot traffic." [1]

The Food Spot serves items like pizza, burgers and a Nashville-style hot chicken sandwich (shown below, right).
