Minnesota’s Brass Rail Honored for Operator Excellence

About 50 miles north of Minneapolis resides the town of Grandy, Minnesota. According to the 2010 census, Grandy’s population was listed at 118; however, Grandy boasts a restaurant that attracts customers from throughout the state, primarily for its Genuine Broaster Chicken®. As a result, Brass Rail has been honored as the latest recipient of Broaster Company’s Golden Chicken Award for Operator Excellence in a celebration at the restaurant on August 30, 2017. The restaurant received the recognition for its history of commitment to the Grandy community, as well as their legacy of serving Genuine Broaster Chicken. “Careful consideration goes into presenting the Golden Chicken Award because we take such pride in all of our operators. Deciding on a recipient is not easy,” said Jay Cipra, President/CEO of Broaster® Company. “Brass Rail is exemplary of our many operators who do exceedingly well and are beloved by their community.”

Brass Rail was established in Grandy by the Biggins family and is now owned by Rod Knowles. Historically the building housed a trading post, a telephone company, a garage, and several different bars in 1926 and 1939 before becoming the establishment it is today.

Since 1972 Genuine Broaster Chicken® has been sold at Brass Rail, which has led the restaurant to being recently named the ‘Best Chicken in Minnesota’ by CBS Minnesota. Brass Rail serves over 112,000 pieces of chicken a week in their small town. To cook this massive amount of chicken, Brass Rail has 9 Broaster 1800 Pressure Fryers with an additional 4 Broaster 1800 Pressure Fryers in their catering trailer.

“It’s an honor for us to have Genuine Broaster Chicken served at an establishment that has such great value in their community,” said Tracy Choppi, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Equipment Innovations at Broaster Company. “They do an excellent job offering our world-class product and operating as a great destination in their community.” Brass Rail’s employees are dedicated to following the Genuine Broaster Chicken Recipe and are always prepared for the next order.
