Our Story Bringin’ That Down Home Flavor For Over Six Decades

Down Home isn’t just a place, it’s the mentality that sets the tone for everything we do. We stick to our roots, because it’s the special flavor that makes us who we are today. At Church’s®, it’s all about big portions, bold flavors, warm welcomes and saving plenty of room for seconds. Because we know that’s how our guests like it – so that’s the way we make it. Been that way for 66 years and it’s not going to change now.

Church’s Chicken® has proudly partnered with No Kid Hungry since 2016. This movement of teachers, chefs, community organizations and leaders, parents, lawmakers and CEOs all share the belief that no kid in America should go hungry – and we’re right there with them. With support from our generous guests, we have been able to help No Kid Hungry provide over 10 million meals for hungry children in America – and there’s no stopping now. In 2019, we’ve grown our partnership to develop a year-long calendar of engagement that gives our team members and guests more ways than ever to get involved and show their support – including our “Round Up For No Kid Hungry” program. Because Down Home, we’re always proud to do our part.

Our History

Started From Scratch

Started From Scratch

In 1952, across the street from the Alamo in San Antonio, TX, George W. Church opened the first Church’s Fried Chicken To-Go. With crispy goodness, hand-crafted flavor, a can-do attitude, Churchie the loveable mascot and a jalapeno pepper on the side – George planted the seeds for what would one day become a world-renowned franchise.
