Morgan Spurlock was famous for exposing the dangers of processed fast food by eating McDonald’s for 30 days.

Morgan Spurlock, the filmmaker who starred in the famous documentary about the fast-food industry, Super Size Me, will open his own fast-food restaurant called Holy Chicken! in Columbus, Ohio, on Nov. 19.

This restaurant won’t be like others in the fast-food industry, though; it will be home to natural products that customers can take on the go.

“Everything about the food is made and backed with integrity and openness including closing the loop in sustainability by raising our own chickens,” the company said in a statement, according to Indie Wire. “The food is not only hormone free, its [sic] antibiotic free, cage free, free range, farm raised, humanely raised and 100 percent natural!”

The signature menu item is the grilled crispy chicken sandwich. There will also be a kids’ menu with an item called “Lil’ Cluckers” chicken tenders.

Central Ohio was chosen as the targeted location since it is commonly used as a test market for fast food, Columbus Business First reported.
