With over 15 years of successful marketing experience, Allison Shapiro Dandry joined Krispy Krunchy Chicken (KKC) in 2011 and has played a pivotal role in driving sales growth and expansion. One of the fastest-growing hot food concepts in the convenience store business, KKC has grown rapidly to 2,600 retail locations across 47 states. Allison leverages her strong analytical and technical skills to spearhead online marketing, social media, SEO and local optimization, reputation management, and consulting efforts.

Born in Hammond and raised in New Orleans, Allison enjoys giving back to her community. As part of her corporate social responsibility initiatives, she leads a program that utilizes KKC’s mobile food truck to provide free meals to citizens affected by natural disasters. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this initiative provided meals to over 15,000 essential workers across Louisiana, and over the past 20 years of hurricane disaster relief assistance, KKC has served more than 20,000 meals. Allison also partners with the New Orleans Pelicans to organize charity events serving meals to youth around the city.

Allison was named the 2019 Woman of the Year by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, a 2020 Woman to Watch by New Orleans Magazine, and a 2022 Cure Crusader by the American Cancer Society. She currently serves on the boards of the Albert Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Junior League of New Orleans, the Louisiana SPCA and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Allison credits her father, Dan Shapiro, for her leadership and growth. Dan’s storied rise to CEO and owner of KKC is one for the books. Today, this family-operated business operates with the goal of becoming a billion-dollar company.
