Williams Chicken Joins the Mission to help Vaccinate AgainstCOVID-19

Free Food with Vaccinations to Start Saturday, July 10

(DALLAS, TX – July 9, 2021) – WHAT: Williams Chicken, known for cooking and serving fresh, hot fried chicken has taken its core value of serving the community to the next level. The fast,
casual restaurant announced today it will allow some of its locations to accommodate
COVID-19 vaccination centers. In partnership with Rev. Richie Butler, Founder of Project
Unity and The Catalyst Health Network, the Founder and CEO of Williams Chicken,
Hiawatha Williams said he plans to start off with three locations to offer the free vaccinations. The first of three events will take place 10 am – 2pm, Saturday, July 10 at Williams Chicken, 2660 Robert B. Cullum in Dallas.

Williams says making the parking lot and other facilities available for this vaccination event are of the utmost importance. “I made it known to my team that I want to reach our customers and persons who live in underserved communities, said Williams. “I am concerned that people of color, the elderly, our youth and young adults may not have convenient access to get the shot or don’t have enough information to make the decision. Our customers trust us for fresh, hot chicken and we want them to trust us to bring the experts to our communities to help us survive and thrive this pandemic,” he said.

In Williams Chicken fashion, everyone who gets the vaccine will be offered a free meal. The vaccine choices for Saturday are the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine for ages 18 and older, and the first dose Pfizer vaccine for ages 12 and older.

advance. Please contact toskamedlock@mac.com or call 214.729.6144
