Chain restaurants are something we all love and appreciate. For some, it’s a nostalgic experience of days gone by and Chain knows exactly that.

In honor of that, the brand is introducing ChainFEST. This unique food experience is something that only comes from a foodie-minded individual.

This fun foodie festival is coming in December from the minds of B.J. Novak and Tim Hollingsworth. This concept came about via a podcast featuring Novak and from there, it spiraled into pop-ups and now, ChainFEST

Essentially, it’s a revamp of some of our favorite classic chain restaurant foods and drinks which is a foodie niche I’m sure none of us saw coming. Even so, it’s such a brilliant idea that it can’t be ignored.

Chain announces ChainFEST coming in December 2023 to Hollywood.

I’ve never seen anything like this before so I’m excited to talk about it and share some of the restaurants and brands who are participating. Everyone has a favorite chain restaurant and ChainFEST is making sure to cater to everyone’s tastes with these choices.

Some of the chain restaurants being featured at ChainFEST are Chili’s Grill and Bar, Dunkin’, Jack in the Box, and Pizza Hut to name a few. Some of the brands also showing up are Pepsi, Smirnoff, and Post Mates. Frankly, it sounds like it’s going to be a heck of a party and a way for everyone to get some elevated chain restaurant cuisine.

If you’re looking to attend, you’re in luck as your ticket pays not only for your admission but all food and drinks, too. You can begin preordering tickets now before ChainFEST kicks off on December 1st and 2nd in Hollywood, California.

The press release does the rest of the heavy lifting for us as it shares what everyone wants to know: “Setting out to redefine the traditional food festival, Chain has reimagined an iconic menu item from each chain restaurant and will be debuting one-of-a-kind food and beverages that will ONLY be available during the two-day event.” As a massive fan of Chili’s, I can only imagine what the brand is going to do with some of its beloved items and it makes me wish I could attend.

Whether you’re attending or not, I’d love to know your thoughts on this unique foodie festival and if you’d attend something like this!
