Yes, We Have No Rotisserie Chickens

For more than a year Charlie Giunta fought Reading Terminal Market management for the right to sell rotisserie chicken at his butcher shop. He went so far as to win a court order last April upholding that right.

Giunta won in the law courts, but lost in the marketplace. His rotisserie machine has been unplugged for a couple months. Basically, Giunta didn't sell enough cooked chicken to justify the space the machine took up, so it's now awaiting pickup by its distributor.

Which is not to say you can't find rotisserie chicken at the market. Dienner's has a wall of it in the Amish section of the market, behind the Dutch Eating Place.
