After two years of pop-ups, Kim Prince opened Hotville Chicken in the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Mall in December. She had big goals for 2020, then along came coronavirus. Prince comes from hot chicken royalty, growing up working at Prince’s Hot Chicken in Nashville, where her family created the legendary dish almost 100 years ago.
