Tyroun Kenton

The CB Pan Chicken Championship is the ultimate food and entertainment experience in Jamaica.

The 2014 season, launched at the Bank of Jamaica lawn on Wednesday, gets even better with a wider reach, and more prize money.

"The Pan Chicken Championship takes place over a six-month period throughout the island and has quickly become the go-to event on the social calendar. The championship series brings together the best of food, fun and entertainment. Families, friends, and communities come together to celebrate great food from real people," Alicia Bogues, CB Chicken brand manager said. "And, one of the greatest things about the CB Pan Chicken Championship is that every event is free to the public and participants."

Firing up on Saturday, July 5 at 10 a.m. at the Manchester High School, the 2014 CB Pan Chicken Championship kicks off with the central regional elimination. From here the competition will move to the east on August 23, then west on September 27 before crowning the champion at

the grand final on November 23. Two parish winners will be selected at each regional event, resulting in 26 finalists vying for more than $1 million in cash and prizes.

Now in its 9th year, Bogues revealed that the championship has joined forces with the Social Development Commission (SDC) in a move to enhance the competition.

Another new addition to the 'Pan' family, she explained, is Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) who brings more prize money and business development workshops. Courtesy of JNBS, the grand champion will receive a $250,000 business grant and, for the first time, the first and second runners-up will also receive business grants valued at $100,000 and $50,000, respectively. This is in addition to the $500,000 plus prize money from CB Chicken.

Comedian Pretty Boy Floyd will host the central regional elimination with entertainment by Jermaine Edwards, Goddy Goddy and Bugle. The fun starts at 10 a.m.
