Growing chicken franchise is on the fast track to have 500 locations operating by 2030
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Golden Chick, the popular southern chicken franchise has reached a major milestone with the opening of its newest and first-ever location in Allen, Texas (839 Baumgartner Way). The fast-casual restaurant brand has officially hit the 200 mark!
On Thursday, December 17, at 9:30 a.m. Golden Chick and the Allen Fairview Chamber of Commerce will host an official ribbon-cutting ceremony to kick off the grand opening celebration for the 200th location system-wide. The restaurant located on Exchange Parkway, West of I-75 will be open for business at 10:00 a.m.
“We are humbled to have opened 16 locations this year leading us to this achievement,” said Jim Stevens, president of Golden Chick. “As a family-oriented restaurant with a 50+ year heritage, we are thrilled that this day has come. Our brand wouldn’t be where it is today without all of our hard-working team members and dedicated franchisees. Now we will continue pushing forward toward our overarching goal of reaching 500 locations by 2030.”
As a part of the celebration, Golden Chick is offering the first 200 guests a complimentary swag bag equipped with a branded face mask, t-shirt, 32 ounce travel mug, plush Clucky doll and a gift card.

Our Clucky mascot will be in attendance for photos with mask-wearing patrons.
“I am honored to open the 200th Golden Chick in the wonderful city of Allen,” said Golden Chick franchisee Joseph Omobogie. “Our team is ready to serve you delicious food whether that is for take-out, in the drive-thru or with third party delivery.
