About Golden Chick
The Golden Chick Story began in Central Texas in the late 1960’s when the concept was created by a former employee of a chicken franchise who believed there had to be a better way to run a franchise system. The delicious chicken, created by the development of secret marinade and batter mixes, attracted franchise inquires, and by the time the founder sold the chain in 1982, it had grown to 39 restaurants. In March 1989, Golden Fried Chicken was purchased by an investment group whose involvement was strongly supported by the Golden Fried Chicken franchise community. Since then, the chain has experienced steady growth with new restaurants opening throughout the region, bringing the chain-wide total to over 150 stores.
