Islamic Society of the Washington Area has certified this establishment as offering one or more halal options. Halal chicken approved by Krispy Krunchy and is available for franchisees. Halal franchisees use chickens that are certified by the Islamic Society of the Washington Area, who confirms that 'all poultry are mechanical slaughter with actual muslims on site reciting the tasmiah (bismillah Allahu akbar) during the slaughter process'. The ISWA Halal Certification Department has reviewed four redacted halal certificates provided by Krispy Krunchy Foods and can confirm that those certificated we issued by ISWA to four separate facilities operated by a producer of chicken products with whom the ISWA Halal Certification Department has enjoyed a long-standing business relationship. Chicken products subject to these certificates were processed and produced by the facilities identified in the unredacted versions of the certificates in accordance with ISWA Halal Certification Department's protocols for halal certified products.
★★★★★ Discovered this place while exploring the "Zabihah" app, as I was trying to find Springfield zabiha halal food options for my wife. After calling and verifying with the store associate that it was halal, we decided to go visit.
For clarification, Krispy Krunchy Chicken is located WITHIN Jays Food Mart(Convenience Store).
As general advice for where the store is located, I would recommend going during the daytime.
All chicken is halal, as seen with the "halal" symbol on the packaging label(provided by the store). The store associate was very informative and helpful.
For those that desire additional verification, please see the following page: https://www.zabihah.com/chn/us/wSIZAeD4TL
As I ordered in the store, I saw that all chicken was fresh and only made when ordered(reason why there's no chicken in the heating racks). In addition to menu items, they also offer bulk chicken buying options.
We ordered the 8 piece mixed chicken ($9.99) and two chicken sandwiches($3.29/each). The chicken was indeed Krispy, Krunchy, and very juicy, The chicken sandwiches were decent.
As a side note, Jays Food Mart has other halal items ("halal" gummy worms etc.), just wanted to point that out.
Given there are few halal options in Springfield, and the great food and customer service, I will be a returning customer. Posted on April 27, 2020
