Chicken chain announces pre-fab restaurants?

Church’s Chicken issued a press release this morning announcing factory-built, pre-fab "modular" restaurants, which will be delivered on flat-bed trucks and be up and running in three days. The release, however, is dated April 1, so I suspect this is an April Fool's hoax. (Cool idea, though.)

This is the way White Castle's were done "back in the day". Also, the Valentine Diner Co manufactured pre-fabricated diner style restaurants.

Though, I must say it is probably an AF Joke.

Back in the late 70's/early 80's Church's started a burger franchise called GW Jr's which built its locations using this exact prefabrication method. The burger franchise didn't last, but many of the units are still in use today, some as Church's Chicken shops, some as other restaurants or other businesses.
