Texas-based chicken brand Golden Chick has opened location in Dallas and Mount Vernon, Texas, marking the company’s fifth and sixth restaurant openings this year, according to a press release.
“Golden Chick has experienced some phenomenal growth over the past four years – double-digit sales increases, new market entries and significant traffic count increases at a time when the industry is seeing the opposite,” Mark Parmerlee, Golden Chick’s chairman, said in the press release. “We are excited to realize this growth and the brand’s expansion. We are also growing our Corporate-owned locations in conjunction with outstanding growth from many franchise partners at Golden Chick.”
Golden Chick’s anticipated corporate location increases this year will double the existing number of corporately-owned restaurants, maintaining the brand’s corporate control of 10% of its now 216 locations across Texas, Oklahoma, Florida and Louisiana. There are more than 20 franchisee-owned locations currently under construction and expected to open before the end of December.
“Opening two locations in the same week across different markets makes our goal of a 10% total increase in store count even more tangible,” Parmerlee added. “Golden Chick is looking forward to making a lasting impact in Mount Vernon, as well as continuing our steady progression in the City of Dallas.”
