Company Summary

Sticky’s Finger Joint began out of a love for chicken fingers, and the desire to think outside the box for a how a restaurant could serve them. The founders of Sticky’s thought there were a lot of New Yorkers who really loved chicken fingers but didn’t have a great place to get them. We also realized that there were endless flavors of dipping sauces that could pair well with a great chicken finger. And thus, Sticky’s was born! The first location opened on March 22nd, 2012 on West 8th Street in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

From the jump, Sticky’s was all about thinking creatively, and doing things differently than others. We launched with over 25 homemade dipping sauces on the menu, inspired by cuisines from around the world. We found local graffiti artists to put up original murals on the walls. We played energetic music and kept serving chicken ‘til the wee hours of the night. We hired people from all different backgrounds and wanted to make everyone feel at home when they were in the store.
