You need to go to the Pilgrims chicken plant in Dallas. Cash sales, you can buy all the chicken you want.
This is an email I sent to a couple coworkers several months ago. The prices may not be the same but they should be close.
For those that eat lots of chicken or just want to save a few bucks, I found out they have extended the hours of cash sales to include Saturday. They are open from 8am until 2pm.
The physical address of the plant is 1900 S Central Expressway but the cash sales office is located on the other side of the plant. Using your favorite mapping software, navigate to the 1900 S Central address. When you get to the light, turn left onto Hickory and follow it to Good Latimer. Turn right onto Good Latimer and then right again on Ferris Street. There might be a guard directing traffic.
I have attached a map of the plant. You will park where the map is marked red. You make your purchases in the office marked yellow and pick up your order from the loading dock marked in green.
It is important to understand, they only accept cash and everything is no frills bulk, fresh or frozen. When you walk into the office, they normally have prices sheets on your right. While waiting in line you can walk to the office and get one. They also have specials written on white boards once you get closer to the pay window. If you don't have coolers large enough for a box, they will sell you an industrial plastic bag for .50 cents. I wrapped a 40lb box of chicken in two and drove home without any problems.
You do not want those boxes leaking in your car and dont step in anything wet. It isnt water and it wont wash off.
Examples of what we recently bought.
40lb box of bonesless-skinless chicken breast was $74.50. There were about 100 chicken breasts.
5lb bag of chicken nuggets was $6.25. There were about 115 chicken nuggets.
5lb bag of chicken strips was $7.00. I didn't count them, but there were about 8-10 quart size ziplocks full.
5lb bag of Italian breaded chicken patties was $10.25. There were about 30 patties.
5lb bag of Spicy breaded chicken breasts was $10.25. There were about 20 breasts.
40lbs Mis-cut breasts on the bone was $24.00. There were about 100 breasts.
40lbs Thighs was $17.00.
They have whole chickens, wings (several different flavors, cooked and uncooked), drumsticks and several other things.
You can call them at 214-565-8633. They wont fax you a price sheet but if she isnt busy, she will give you prices over the phone.
