COLLAB Series | Hot FUSIAN Takeover

Fusian staff, four males

The COLLAB series is back! We’ve partnered with our friends at Hot Chicken Takeover to create a collaborative sushi roll that benefits Pelotonia, and we’re calling it Hot FUSIAN Takeover!

This fiery option will be available exclusively at our Columbus-area locations for a limited time. From, July 23-29, 2018, for every roll purchased, HCT and FUSIAN will donate one dollar to Pelotonia. On July 22nd, the roll will be available for preview on our rewards app through the online ordering feature.

The roll contains HCT’s signature Nashville-style (roasted) hot chicken, coleslaw, pickles, rolled with sushi rice and topped with a drizzle of HCT’s House Ranch and a cayenne-infused tempura crunch. Like to sweat? Substitute house ranch for Holy Ranch to Kick it up a notch.

“We can assure you the chicken is cooked,” jokes FUSIAN co-founder and CEO Zach Weprin. “And we can also assure you the roll is like nothing else you’ve ever tasted before.”

Hot Chicken Takeover (HCT) is a community-focused restaurant serving juicy Nashville Hot Chicken to Central Ohio residents. Founded in 2014, HCT attracts an eclectic mix of customers eager to gather around long communal tables and sip free iced tea, making the Hot Chicken Takeover experience feel more like a backyard block party than a restaurant. HCT is focused on creating impact in the communities it serves through its approach as a Fair Chance Employer

“At HCT we love community and we love collaboration,” shares Hot Chicken Takeover CEO and Founder, Joe DeLoss. “And we especially like it when those two things combine to create impact.”

It is a significant year for Pelotonia as they are embarking on their 10th anniversary ride this August. The grassroots organization has raised over $165M to accelerate funding for cancer research at The James Cancer Center.

This is our second Columbus-area COLLAB, a partnership series that offers exclusively menu items developed in collaboration with area restaurants + chefs to support the communities in which they serve.
