Jay’s Chicken Shack opened its doors in Hillsborough in 2014 and has been a staple of the local community ever since.

Jay’s is family owned and the staff takes pride in getting to know its customers. All chicken is hand-cut, food is prepared fresh daily and the staff will work to provide customers with customized items not on the menu.

Hillsborough has become home for Jay and his family. Jay himself volunteers as a coach for the Orange County youth soccer league.

As a recipient of the Small Business Grant Program, Jay’s Chicken Shack was able to purchase new kitchen equipment and has also expressed interest in installing a drive-through window and expanding its outside seating area.
