Hot Chicken Takeover & Mikey’s Late Night Slice Annual Collaboration Returns

“Hot Mikey’s Takeover” returns for fourth year in support of the Columbus Diaper Bank

Columbus, OH: Hot Chicken Takeover (HCT) and Mikey’s Late Night Slice (LNS) are teaming up for a fourth year and bringing back their fan-favorite collaborative pizza to all Late Night Slice locations. The Hot Mikey’s Takeover pizza will be available Monday February 11th through Sunday February 17th , 2019.  For every dollar spent on a slice or pie, HCT and LNS will donate a diaper to the Columbus Diaper Bank (CDB).

“We’re grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with our friends at Late Night Slice,” shares Hot Chicken Takeover Founder, Joe DeLoss. “Combining our communities and creating impact together is something that is meaningful for both our team and our customers. We look forward to Hot Mikey’s Takeover every year and have something special planned for year four.”

HCT and LNS began their collaboration in 2016 to do some good for the community and have some fun with their respective customers at the same time.  Nobody could have predicted the popularity and demand for the Nashville Hot Chicken style pizza, made with the distinctive HCT flavors on the award-winning LNS pizza crust. It has become an annual event that continues to grow in anticipation, as well as continuing to benefit the CDB.

Mikey’s newest Columbus Late Night Slice across from the Columbus Convention Center will be hosting a VIP Sneak Preview event on Saturday February 9th. Tickets go on sale today and can be purchased here. Price includes all-you-can-eat pizza and sponsored drink tickets by North High Brewing. Tickets may be purchased for either a 5pm-7pm time slot, or 7pm-9pm time slot.

The HMT pizza will be available at all four Mikey’s Late Night Slice locations, as well as through third party delivery services: 1030 N. High Street | 15 E. Duncan Street | 268 South 4th Street | 459 N High St
