'''Mr. Cluck's Chicken Shack''' is a fast food franchise modeled after KFC and Popeyes Chicken.  Hurley was an employee—and later the owner—of a Mr. Cluck's restaurant.

==Background==
===Hurley as an employee===
{{I=6x12 Mr. Clucks.jpg=200=left=Hurley's humble beginnings. {{crossref}}}}
Hurley worked at Mr. Cluck's until his boss, Randy Nations, accused him of eating an 8-piece dark meat combo. His boss stated that the company was not made of money, and that if Hurley was made of money, maybe he didn't want to work there. Hurley, having just found out that he won the lottery, quit his job.  One of Hurley's co-workers, Johnny, who was also Hurley's best friend, quit when Hurley quit. The two went joy riding that night and spelled out the words "CLUCK YOU" in garden gnomes on Randy's lawn.

===Hurley as an owner===

Hurley and Randy's roles were reversed after Hurley purchased Mr. Cluck's with some of his lottery winnings. After Hurley decided to re-launch Mr. Cluck's, Tricia Tanaka, a news reporter from the Action 8 News, came and covered the story. During the recording, Hurley told her about his bad luck, revealing that Johnny ran away with Starla's girlfriend after he learned about Hurley's winnings. Tricia Tanaka, who complained that his comments didn't fit the "puff piece" they were filming, stopped the interview and went inside to "shoot some B-roll." Suddenly, a meteorite hit the restaurant, killing Tanaka and her cameraman. {{crossref}}

The particular franchise where Hurley worked, and later bought, was located in the town of Diamond Bar, California. {{crossref}}

** DJ Dan asks if he was eating chicken breasts or legs and thighs. Brad answers legs and thighs, and is shutdown, saying "billionaires do not eat legs and thighs!"

==Trivia==
* The destruction of Mr. Cluck's by a meteor was first (briefly) mentioned by Hurley to Jack in {{ep}}.
* The filming location was the Iwilei Popeyes Chicken in Honolulu.http//www.lostvirtualtour.com/lost/filming_locations/popeyes/index.html
*According to Visual Effects Supervisor Kevin Blank, the shot of the meteorite hitting the restaurant was "the single biggest, most expensive shot the show has ever done." {{crossref!}}
* In {{ep}} Hurley is heard speaking on the phone to someone about his "Outback Roasters," complaining that "Outback" is just a name and that a third party thinks "they own the entire Outback." This suggests Mr. Cluck's may be in a legal dispute with a certain WikipediaOutback Steakhouse.
