Due to popular demand and success from its Bay Area launch, Curry Up Now, the nation’s largest and fastest growing Indian fast casual concept that is best known for its innovative Indian eats, has launched its Tandoori Fried Chicken Sandwich at all locations nationwide. Making its debut just in time for the start of National Chicken Month, the ‘TFC’ Sandwich features 72 hour tandoori-marinated chicken that is fried to crisp perfection and topped with bombay dust aioli, house made pickled onions, and a chutney of curry leaves, pineapple, and jalapeño on a brioche bun. The new item will be a permanent addition to the menu alongside Curry Up Now’s popular Tikka Masala Burritos, Deconstructed Samosa, Sexy Fries, Naughty Naan, and more at all 12 locations in California, Utah, New Jersey, and Georgia. 

“Due to the success of the TFC Sandwich launch at our San Francisco Bay Area restaurants earlier this summer, we knew right away that we wanted to offer this menu item to all of our Curry Up Now guests across the country,” said Akash Kapoor, founder and chief executive officer. “We’re excited to heat up the fried chicken sandwich wars with our playful and unique riff on this classic American sandwich that is infused with our signature Curry Up Now twist, and turns ordinary fried chicken into something both vibrant and delicious!”

To celebrate TFC Sandwich’s nationwide launch and the start of National Chicken Month, all 12 Curry Up Now restaurants are offering buy one TFC Sandwich, get one 50% off from Tuesday, 9/1 through Sunday, 9/6.
