About South Summit Chamber of Commerce
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 the chicken for its employees, not for customers. After they saw them eating it they asked if they could try a little taste.
Soon customers would come in for one thing; the chicken and hot sauce. They added coleslaw and fresh-cut french fries and the Barberton Chicken Dinner was born.
