Rudy Hansen’s service station is getting a new lease on life. After 40 years in business, this historic location is becoming the new home of Big Chickie, a charcoal rotisserie chicken restaurant. The brainchild of Seattle restaurateur Matt Stubbs, Big Chickie came about from his childhood love of pollo a la brass.

What’s Pollo a la Brasa?
It’s Spanish for grilled chicken.

Seattleites don’t have to worry about him changing the feel of the neighborhood. Matt is all about having a positive community impact. He see’s Big Chickie as a way to revitalize the neighborhood and help propel the area into a business renaissance.
Once the paper were signed and the ground was broken, Matt knew he had to find a way to draw in customers to his new restaurant. A great sign would help him do just that! After all, a sign is the first thing customers see before walking in the door.

Matt initially called us about putting in a pole sign outside the old gas station. But after running the numbers it just didn’t fit in his remodeling budget. But we still wanted to come up with a design that would add character and give Matt the most visual impact. We landed on a roof top sign in the shape of a chicken that would attract the wondering eyes of commuters and a wall sign that would communicate the restaurants specialty.
