About South Summit Chamber of Commerce

Fresh Ohio-raised chicken, lightly breaded and deep-fried. All-natural. The flavor you experience is how chicken actually tastes. No heavy seasoning to "create" a taste.

Well, where do we start? Founded in 1942, Barberton Chicken and its tomato rice mixture called hot sauce were introduced to the public by accident. A small restaurant in Barberton made it for its employees, not customers. After they saw them eating it they asked if they could try a little taste. Soon customers would come in for two things; the chicken and hot sauce. They added coleslaw and fresh-cut french fries and the Barberton Chicken Dinner was born. Today, 50+ years later, Barberton is considered the Chicken Capital of the World. Four chicken houses serve over 7 1/2 tons of chicken per week.
