Quality, Consistency are Essential Keys to Emil’s Success

Emil’s Pizza & Sports Bar – Mundelein, IL

Genuine Broaster Chicken has been a major force in helping to advance the success of Emil’s Pizza & Sports Bar, winner of the Golden Chicken Award. Michael Bowes purchased Emil’s in Mundelein, Illinois (population 36,000) 21 years ago after the previous owner retired and saw the business continue to prosper.

Bowes states that he uses from 20-25 cases of chicken per week to produce golden, mouth-watering Genuine Broaster Chicken. “Customers drive great distances for the chicken; some from as far as 60 miles away”.

Emil’s, which seats 110 and offers carryout, also offers Broaster Foods® products such as chicken tenders, mozzarella sticks, onion rings and jalapeño peppers.

Michael touts quality, consistency and the helpfulness of his Broaster Distributor, Wood Food Systems as essential keys to the success of his business. “The distributor is always there when I need them”, says Michael.

As for the future, Michael plans to expand the Emil’s brand with the opening of additional locations. “Genuine Broaster Chicken will be a part of all future stores”.
