In 2022 alone, we saw over 13 restaurants either open or reopen. It was awesome seeing established businesses open again, and it was also great to see new restaurants open in the area and begin to flourish. It looks like Lansing is going to see another restaurant open over on the west side.

I was driving on the west side when I saw the brand new sign outside of what was once an old insurance building. The sign brightly displayed "crack chicken", which is a chicken that holds a special place in the heart of Lansing.

"Crack chicken" is given this nickname due to its addictive seasoning. And it looks like a crack chicken restaurant is what's going to be taking over that old insurance space.

After seeing this sign, I was thoroughly intrigued. However, besides a name and a phone number, the signs didn't offer any other information, like when they might be open. So, I immediately hopped onto the Lansing Foodies Facebook group to see if anyone else might have some info. Sadly, I came up empty-handed. But perhaps we'll have more word on this new restaurant soon?

By the looks of the sign at the bottom that is slightly covered up, it looks like there might also be an Arabic grocery store opening in this location as well. But only time will tell.
