LAFAYETTE, La. — Krispy Krunchy Chicken has announced a partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in the fight to end cancer.

As part of the “Krunch for a Cure” program, Krispy Krunchy will donate 100% of its corporate profits from the sale of the Krispy Krunchy Chicken Sandwich to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). The money will go toward funding research, helping families and saving lives.

The program began May 13 and will run through June 28 in more than 2,400 of Krispy Krunchy’s locations. It will be the single largest partnership in LLS' history.

“This is the kind of partnership Krispy Krunchy loves. Two great entities—Krispy Krunchy Chicken and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society—fighting together to find a cure for cancer. That's a fight we want to win,” said Allison Shapiro Dandry, director of communications and technology for Krispy Krunchy.

LLS is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to curing leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma while improving the quality of life of patients and their families.

“The fight against blood cancers cannot be won without supporters such as Krispy Krunchy Chicken, their operators and their customers,” said Katie Triplett, executive director of the New Orleans LLS. “Every action, every contribution is needed and valued. We are committed to working tirelessly until we find a cure."

Lafayette, La.-based Krispy Krunchy Chicken offers a premium c-store-based quick-service restaurant concept with more than 2,400 locations across 46 states and Mexico. It was recognized by Thrillist, an online restaurant and food review media company, as “America's Best Fried Chicken You've Never Heard Of.” Executives Dan Shapiro and Neal Onebane were also named to Louisiana Life magazine’s list of Louisianians of the Year in 2018.
