Naked Chicken Co. signature product is Bone-in Skinless fried chicken that contains zero grams of trans fat per serving. Preparing our specialty chicken includes such steps as removing the skin and using a proprietary breading process. By eliminating the skin, Pudgie's Naked Chicken Co. is able to address consumers' growing desire for a healthier option, making our chicken lower in fat and cholesterol than traditional fried chicken.
Founded in 1981 in the community of Bethpage, New York, (as Pudgie's Famous Chicken), George Sanders developed his secret chicken recipe and skinning process. The concept quickly spread throughout Long Island and by 1989 had become a franchise company. In 2007, TRUFOODS LLC, acquired the Pudgie's brand. After exhaustive research, TRUFOODS, LLC. created the most unique, relevant & quality driven chicken brand in the quick service restaurant industry, Naked Chicken Co. With the introduction of more "portable" skinless chicken products such as tenders, salads and sandwiches, our concept is more viable and appeals to a broader customer base. TRUFOODS' success is based on our ability to create new opportunities, build customer base through aggressive and effective marketing, reducing costs, & improve the overall management of the brand.
