TRAIL STOP 1: KING CHICKEN FILLIN’ STATION
Location: 3897 McCullough Blvd
Start the trail at King Chicken Fillin’ Station, owned and operated by Patricia Wax.
King Chicken Fillin’ Station is known across the South for its scrumptious fried chicken.
Patricia Wax knows a thing or two about managing restaurants. Before purchasing the local chicken joint, King Chicken Fillin’ Station, she owned and managed seven fast-food restaurants in Mississippi. Thirty-six years earlier, she started as a team member, and it was her curiosity and willingness to try new things that saw her develop into a supervisor and then manager. Then, in 2019, she went down a new path: she purchased King Chicken Fillin’ Station.
With Patricia at the helm, things have gotten even better, including expanded lunch offerings and new sides. While you’re there, make sure to snap a picture with one of Tupelo’s Elvis murals.
Positive Takeaway: It’s never too late to try something new in your career.
