Harold’s Chicken can’t get business license; landlord cries foul

SHARE Harold’s Chicken can’t get business license; landlord cries foul

For nearly 65 years, Harold’s Chicken has been a staple in the black community.

But there are signs the franchise, which has locations all over the Chicago’s South Side, may have worn out its welcome — at least one planned for one neighborhood.

Last month, a franchisee signed a lease for a space in the 4500 block of South Indiana, but couldn’t get a business license because an the alderman had suddenly rezoned the property for residential use.

Now, Kandy Cobbs, the owner of the building at 4507-09 South. Indiana, is crying foul.

“I feel Harold’s was chased away unfairly for personal reasons or personal gain. Come on, now we don’t like chicken?” she asked.
