Every konbini – convenience store in Japan proudly has its own brand of fried chicken, such as Lawson’s Karaage-kun, fried chicken chicken nuggets that have been certified as space food. For FamilyMart, the signature fried chicken is Family Chicken or Fami-chiki, which has developed a wide range of flavors.
It may not be a completely new flavor, but FamilyMart is now offering consumers the opportunity to turn their Fami-chiki into a burger by selling a set of buns to be served with a fried chicken. They also come with a serving of tartar sauce pre-spread.
Customers can just simply pick up a pair of particularly fluffy buns (88 yen) from the FamilyMart bread section and take it to the counter where you can order your favorite Fami-chiki flavor and combine the two for a “Fami-chiki burger.” Of course, you can buy and add different toppings as you see fit.
The Fami-chiki buns are currently on sale at FamilyMarts throughout Japan, beginning on 12 January.
