Hot Chicken Takeover (HCT) and Mikey’s Late Night Slice (LNS) are teaming up for their fifth year, bringing back the fan favorite collaboration pizza made with HCT Nashville Style Chicken, house made Ranch Dressing, and pickles on an LNS pizza.
The classic “Hot Mikey’s Takeover” Pizza will be available at all Columbus LNS locations from Monday, February 17th through Sunday, February 23rd.
The “Hot Mikey’s Takeover: Ma’s Mac Edition” a version of the collaboration with HCT’s special recipe macaroni and cheese was released unannounced in 2019, surprising fans by extending the run of the collaboration for a second week. This year, the Ma’s Mac Edition will return to all Columbus LNS locations from Monday, February 24th through Sunday March 1st.
A very special Vegan version of “Hot Mikey’s Takeover,” made with HCT’s plant based “Not Chicken” and a plant based Ranch will be available at the LNS location at High St & Vine St for one day only on Sunday February 23rd.
As in years past, a VIP Sneak Preview Party will be held prior to the public launch. This year, the party will be held at the LNS at 268 S 4th St location, featuring an all-you-can-eat buffet of all three versions of the Hot Mikey’s pizza, including the new vegan Not Chicken pie, as well as a fourth made at the infamous HCT “Holy” heat level. Tickets go on sale today for $25 each. Price includes all-you-can-eat pizza and sponsored drink tickets by North High Brewing. Tickets may be purchased for either a 5pm-7pm time slot, or 7pm-9pm time slot.
HCT and LNS began their collaboration in 2016 to do some good for the community and have some fun with their respective customers at the same time. Nobody could have predicted the popularity and demand for the Nashville Hot Chicken style pizza, made with the distinctive HCT flavors on the award-winning LNS pizza crust. It has become an annual event that continues to grow in anticipation. Each year, the collaboration has been in support of the Columbus Diaper Bank, where a diaper for every dollar spent on the pizza will purchase a diaper for families in need.
“We added our vegan option, Not Chicken, to the HCT menu last summer and were eager to include a plant-based version of our annual Hot Mikey’s Takeover pizza to the menu this year,” shares Joe DeLoss, Hot Chicken Takeover Founder and CEO. “We look forward to serving more guests and generating additional diapers for families in Central Ohio through our partnership with the Columbus Diaper Bank.”
“Five years is a milestone, no matter how you look at it,” shares Mikey Sorboro, LNS Founder, “it’s become a tradition and we’re thrilled that this year, we literally have a “Hot Mikey’s Takeover” to offer just about everyone!”
The HMT pizza will be available at all four Mikey’s Late Night Slice locations, as well as through Door Dash delivery services: 1030 N. High Street | 15 E. Duncan Street | 268 South 4th Street | 459 N High St.
