For this week’s “Business Spotlight” we sat down with Gary Danehower, owner of Blazin’ J’s, which is located at 139 W Gay Street!


1. Tell me about your store and any particular things you believe make it unique.

One thing you’ll find unique about Blazin’ J’s is our homemade dip sauces and seasoning blends that we use to ‘hot dip’ our chicken. We have a range of flavors & heat, including Mild, Hot Honey, ‘J’s Way’ Hot, and ‘Blazed Up’ to satisfy your mood or preference. Alongside that, our J’s Hot Mayo is a one-of-kind creation that works well not only on sandwiches, but also as a dip for our tenders, bites, & hand-cut fries. It also makes for a great salad dressing!


2. What services or products do you offer?

Our menu is simple. Hand-crafted chicken breast sandwiches, jumbo tenderloins, bites, & salads. Popular add-ons include our fresh hand-cut seasoned fries, hot Belgian waffles, & our Azzurie Lemonades. Everything is made fresh to order!


3. How long have you been in business?

We opened our first location in Lancaster, PA in November of 2019. The West Chester location is our newest one and just opened on May 26th!


4. What do you love most about being located in West Chester?

There is a great vibe in West Chester and the community has been very welcoming. The businesses have also been super supportive, demonstrating an attitude that ‘together we’re all better.’


5. What can you tell me about the culture or atmosphere of your store?

Our staff is a completely new team and 100% local. We have fun while working to create an atmosphere that’s upbeat and positive.


6. Is there anything else you would like to share about your store?

We want to thank the community and businesses for supporting us! We look forward to serving the community as we get further established.
