STARTED FROM SCRATCH. BUILT ON TRAILBLAZING SPIRIT

Scratch Church Display

In 1952, our founder, George Church Sr., began selling his homemade fried chicken right across the street from the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, pioneering the can-do attitude, crispy goodness, and hand-crafted flavors we’re known for today. Still, while our history is important to us, we’re that rare bird (pun intended) — a legacy brand that’s not stuffy, tired, or boring. We’ve launched a new brand image that’s contemporary, engaging, and deeply connected to our Texas roots, with innovation that includes new menu items your guests will love.

WHO’S THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR OUR COMFORT FOOD FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY?

We look for franchisees who are straight-shooters, who are committed to excellence,  and are willing to give it everything they've got - with plenty of help from us.

We also want franchise candidates to have at least five years of QSR experience and the capital to grow five Church's Texas Chicken® locations over five years. Below are some investments numbers to consider:

Development Fee:
