I don't understand why we are not getting the smaller and/or cut pieces, but that's not a complaint!

We got a nine piece meal tonight here in Saskatoon. All pieces were regular, full size. Actually, the breast was a bit larger than usual.
Food was all fresh and good, price okay with a coupon.

Tried Chick n Joy at York Mills, its virtually identical to KFC. Only difference was they have better fries than KFC (more crispy & fries were bigger) & they still used normal sized pieces (bigger than the new KFC pieces). $3.75 + tax, Tues special. I think Chick n Joy definitely have the colonel's secret recipe lol, really tasted identical.

The funny thing about the name Chick'n'joy is that they are all in their own worlds. Unlike KFC, where everything tries it's best to be the same from location to location, The three locations that I know of are all doing their own thing.

Its because the queen street location has nothing to do with the chain. Absoloutely nothing. The original at queen and greenwood actually kept sueing the chain before due to the use of its name.

The Queen street location passes for having okay chicken, and maybe okay fries but their gravy is yellow, and not all that great.
The other two locations also seem to be operating separately, as if to have nothing to do with each other.

Most people think the original Queen location has better chicken & prefer the gravy.

Looks like the other two locations are going with "CNJ" chicken, while still keeping the Chick'n'joy name somehow.

People actually drive all the way out from Scarborough and pay for parking just to get chicken from the Queen street location? I highly doubt that.
If you're doing something in the area anyway, that makes sense, but people shouldn't have to travel. The name should mean something strong enough to be exactly the same at all three locations.
However,
Like I said, at least the other two are "CNJ" first, and Chicken Joy second, in an effort to show that they are completely separate.

I live downtown, don't have a car, and go out of my way to go to the York Mills location all the time.
