What Makes Us Such a Top Restaurant Brand and a Fast-Growing Chicken Franchise Opportunity?

When it comes to investing in a quick-service restaurant (QSR) opportunity, we know you have options. After all, Church’s Texas Chicken® is not the only QSR brand out there — but we are one of the fastest-growing chicken franchises available, and for some very good reasons.

A trusted brand name that people know and love? Check. A family-friendly, affordable menu with something for everyone? Check. Unwavering corporate support for the life of your business? You can check that box off, too.

But while we’re exceptionally proud of our heritage and our delicious menu offerings, it’s our culture, our values, and our vision that truly sets us apart from the rest. 

Over 70 Years of Goodness

Church’s Texas Chicken® has been serving up wholesome, handcrafted flavors since 1952, when founder George W. Church opened our first restaurant right across the street from the Alamo in San Antonio, TX. It didn’t take long for his attention to quality and goodness to catch on as George started cooking up what would become one of the largest QSR chicken chains in the world.

Today, our handcrafted, hand-battered chicken is still freshly prepared in small batches all day long, and our famous Honey-Butter BiscuitsTM and classic homestyle sides are still the favorites of millions of people across the world. That’s right — we are a global brand with over 1,500 restaurants in 24 countries. 

We didn’t get that big by thinking small. To all of us at Church’s Texas Chicken®, food is more than a meal – it’s big portions, bold Texas flavors, warm welcomes, and saving plenty of room for seconds. It’s our passion, and our franchisees know it and feel it in everything we do to support them on their franchise journey.

Our Values Make the Difference

Becoming one of the fastest-growing franchises in the chicken restaurant industry doesn’t happen unless you’ve got bedrock values that inform everything you do — and we have them. Our values are at the heart of our business model and have helped us become the third-largest bone-in chicken brand in the world. These values mean we…

  • Work Together

We know we’re stronger when we collaborate and combine our expertise to create trusting relationships and great products.

  • Show We Care

We listen, understand, and think about how our actions affect others. We look for ways to improve ourselves and inspire others to do the same. 

  • Step Up

We accept responsibility and hold ourselves accountable through hard work, discipline, and a commitment to make a difference in our restaurants and the communities we serve. 

  • Celebrate Differences

We appreciate and respect all cultures and look to learn from each other. Our collective strength comes from celebrating local differences while embracing the power of a global brand. 

  • Do the Right Thing

We keep our commitments and act with honesty, integrity, and conviction to see things through. 

Strong, consistent values always make the difference, and we adhere to ours every day, all the time. It’s what’s helped us become a top restaurant franchise opportunity in a highly competitive field.

Keeping Our Franchising Strategy Simple

Fast forward to today, and our chicken franchise founder proved to be a visionary by embracing a philosophy of operational simplicity. What does that mean? It means…

  • A limited menu: we stick to a few good things and do them very, very well.
  • A tool for every task: We let technology and smart choices make our jobs easier
  • A clear understanding of responsibilities: we know teamwork is everything
  • A handle on costs: we have a clear understanding of bottom-line math

We keep things simple because it works. We strive to deliver our products profitably, at low cost, and with a more efficient use of capital and employees. By keeping our eye on what matters, we’ve been able to become one of the best restaurant franchises available.

As a global QSR brand, we know it’s critical to have the infrastructure to support franchisee growth — a proven business model, ongoing research and development, expert marketing, and more. But none of that will reach its full potential without the culture and values to back them up.
