Very brief article. SF and Tyson and formed a partnership where any chicken items in the parks will be from Tyson.
I kind of like this as Tyson is of decent quality.

I guess we have different opinions about quality. Hormoned up processed stuff isn't meat to me!

Well, it's not top grade quality, but it sure as heck is better then what SF was offering before as far as chicken goes.

I don't normally go for "chopped and shaped", but Tyson makes delicious chicken patties (10 pack for about $5 at Wal-Mart!) I really like Tysons non-processed chicken too!
And I think this is a good idea. People trust brand names. Because Tyson is putting their name on it, they have more to lose if the product isn't of high quality.

I actually do not mind the chicken tenders at Six Flags. I really dont know if they are talking about the chicken or tenders. Tenders at the flags are good.

Agreed, you're never going to get truffles or kobe beef or surf-n-turf at SF. There's no *market* for it really.
But name brands of average quality WILL serve the purpose of being "good enough" while feeding the people something of average quality and still being able to charge the "concessions pricing". Plus the marketing tie-ins make for a good source of revenue, money that SF can bring in WITHOUT having to incur costs in the process (see $60M cost-cutting thread).

SFI also signs a deal with LO-Q to run through 2010.
