When extreme spice and some bold questions mix, a few celebrities have become a little hot under the collar. In partnership with Grubhub, Hot Ones delivery brings its infamous mix of chicken wings and extreme flavor directly to people’s doorstep.

In honor of Hot Ones 300th episode, First We Feast and powered by Mealco partnered with Grubhub to offer select New York locations the ability to order some of those chicken wings and hot sauces that have made a few people get a little weepy. Although no one is required to answer the difficult questions to get this special food offering, there might be a few repercussions the morning after the feast.

Speaking to this partnership, Liz Bosone, Grubhub’s VP of Restaurant Success said, ““The opportunity to deliver the impressive cultural fandom of Hot Ones directly to fans’ front doors through this collaboration is just another way Grubhub is committed to making moments more joyful with delivery.”

First We Feast General Manager Chris Schonberger added, “For years, fans have asked to try the iconic Hot Ones menu for themselves, and we can’t wait to bring the heat straight to their doors through our collaboration with Mealco’s virtual restaurant technology for this epic milestone.”

The first ever Hot Ones delivery pop-up will be available in select locations around Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. The 6-piece and 12-piece wing delivery can be paired with select sauces. Options include:

  • Los Calientes Rojo: Spicy and tropical
  • The Classic Chili Maple: Balances sweet and heat.
  • The Classic Garlic Fresno: Garlic and Fresno chili are a flavor party

In addition, guests can order French fries and a drink for a complete meal. If the bold flavor might be too much to handle, there is an option for an Apple Fritter topped with sweet milk for dessert. For those people who are spice adverse, they might want to have plenty of milk-based products or some sugar packets within reach.

Thinking about this new offering, it expands the conversation of food and culture. While many celebrities and chefs have embraced the ghost kitchen concept, expanding the idea into other culturally relevant areas could be a boost for brands like Grubhub. Whether it is a collaboration with Hot Ones, a television series, or even an upcoming concert, the possibilities for these limited-edition pop-up events are endless.

The Grubhub Hot Ones delivery pop-up is available now at select locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. Check with Grubhub for availability and pricing.
