Verde at Cooley Station community notches another local eatery

Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

sneakybird is announcing the opening of its second restaurant, which will be found at Verde at Cooley Station – 3945 E. Williams Field Road in Gilbert.

“The secret to the success of sneakybird, spelled with all lowercase letters by design to underscore its sneaky-good and sneaky guilt-free product, is the combination of a specially designed oven and innovative breading recipe that blends panko flatbread as well as aged parmesan that together combine to give the crunch and flavor of fried chicken,” said Gilbert resident Jordan Strasser, managing member of J2E Investments, in a prepared statement.

“The process is applied to a gorgeous array of oven-grilled chicken wings, tenders, and sandwiches. Of course, for those who prefer something that feels more like grilled chicken, each of the chicken options may also be ordered “naked,” which means it is grilled breadless with SPG, which is the salt, pepper, and garlic dry rub.”

sneakybird also features four handcrafted flatbreads – Chicken Pesto, Margarita, Pepperoni and the Islander, which features honey-chipotle sauce, mozzarella, pineapple, capicola, and fresh cilantro – as well as three epic options for tater tots (including a sweet potato alternative), salad, coleslaw, and even a chilled vegetable medley.

“We are also in the process of getting our community outreach program up and running,” Mr. Strasser said in the release. “We are deeply committed to nurturing the local school ecosystem, hosting fundraising events, and actively participating in community events. Our doors are always open to collaborate and foster a spirit of unity and growth.”

For Mr. Strasser, the new restaurant is more than just a business, but the opportunity to work with his family to feed the local community.

“Our family – the team behind J2E – discovered sneakybird while on vacation in Scottsdale last summer,” Mr. Strasser said. “We were looking for a healthy alternative to fried food – chicken in particular – and could not believe the quality. It kept us coming back day after day. By our trip’s conclusion, we set up a meeting with founder Dan Chaon and his team and made plans to open operations of J2E in Arizona to start the expansion process with him.”
