We Know Fried Chicken!
With over 1,500 restaurants in 24 countries, we know fried chicken! Since 1952, when our founder, George Church Sr., first began selling his homemade fried chicken right across the street from the Alamo, we’ve been serving up crispy goodness and hand-crafted flavors to our guests who just keep coming back for more. We know what a chicken franchise is and should be, and we help our franchisees build out and operate the perfect restaurants with flexible restaurant footprints to choose from and industry-leading technology to guide them. Our menu is a crowd-pleaser that features the kind of wholesome comfort foods your community will enjoy on a regular basis. And while we always stay true to our heritage (we don’t mess with a good thing), you can count on our ongoing innovations to bring new and exciting menu options to your restaurants.
Our Industry Is a Consumer Favorite
It’s a fact: people love fried chicken, especially when it’s prepared the Church’s way. Our hand-crafted meals feature flavorful bone-in fried chicken, juicy tenders, world-famous Honey Butter Biscuits™, and more. Your Church’s Texas Chicken® franchise will become part of a robust industry that is projected to be valued at 9.85B by 2030 (1), suggesting that the love of fried chicken is not going away anytime soon.
Furthermore, the to-go market is hotter than ever across all outlets. According to a recent industry survey (2), of all orders placed at US fast-food restaurants in 2022, 85% were placed to-go. And among full-service restaurants, 33% of orders were to-go in 2022. Your Church’s Texas Chicken® locations will capitalize on this important trend.
