Hot Chicken Takeover Partners with Dress for Success Columbus

Restaurant to donate proceeds from t-shirt sales to the organization

Columbus, OH – Hot Chicken Takeover is partnering with Dress for Success Columbus through a program to benefit the non-profit. Hot Chicken Takeover has produced a limited edition of DFS shirts for 2018, and will donate $5 from every shirt sold to the Dress for Success Columbus.

“Many of our team members have shared with us the meaningful impact Dress for Success has had on their lives,” shares Hot Chicken Takeover Founder Joe DeLoss. “They do tremendous work in our community, and we want to do our share to support them.”

“We’re excited for the partnership with Hot Chicken Takeover,” shares Dress for Success Founder & CEO Vicki Bowen Hewes, “it’s through community partners like this that we’re able to share the mission of Dress for Success and empower more women.”

Dress for Success has earmarked the HCT donation to go towards new laptops for their Career Center, which provided services last year for over 1,700 women as prepared to start new jobs and move forward in their careers.

These limited-edition shirts will be available for purchase at any of the three Hot Chicken Takeover locations in Central Ohio. Shirts are $29 each and come with a free meal. Patrons who wear their shirt into the restaurant on subsequent visits will get $1 off their meal.

This year’s t-shirt was printed at Tonic Studios in Grandview.
