I worked at the Chicken Unlimited at 127th and Pulaski in Alsip, IL from 1972-1974. The chain was owned by the Garagoshin(sp?) brothers who lived in Palos Heights. The restaurants had a wide menu including hamburgers, deep-fried fish and shrimp but specialized in selling fried chicken in bulk as a competitor to KFC (hence the name). I believe they went bankrupt in the mid/late-seventies.
One of my biggest memories of my time there was when we catered the HS graduation party of the owner’s sons (each brother had a son the same age that graduated HS in 1974 – the same year I graduated). I was making $1.85 an hour at the time saving every penny to buy a car. Our store was chosen to cater the party because we we the closest to their home. The District Manager and I loaded up his car with chicken and shrimp and headed to the party. We drove up this loooong driveway and finally the house (mansion) loomed before us. Sitting in front of the garage were two brand new cars – a corvette and a trans-am. I drooled… Then the District Manager told me that the cars were the graduation presents for the two sons. (sigh) That’s when I learned how the "other half" lives!
