Golden Chick was started by a former franchisee of a similar fast-food brand. He believed that there should be a better way to do this type of business and so he founded the “Golden Fried Chicken” restaurant. The first location was opened in San Marcos, Texas in the late 1960s.
This brand focused on quality rather than quantity and in the beginning, it developed at a steady pace. Over time, the batter and marinade recipes have been perfected and the chicken menu has been improved and diversified in order to satisfy the entire family. The official franchising began in 1972, after this extensive fine-tuning.
In 1982 there were 39 locations opened and eventually, the chain was sold. After this sale, the chain expanded rapidly. Most of the restaurants were located in central Texas at the beginning of business development.
Nowadays there are more than 180 Golden Chick restaurants operating in Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Georgia, South Carolina, Amman, and Jordan and there are plans for opening new locations in other countries, including China.
