Our Story Welcome to the Great State of Flavor™ For Over Seven Decades

At Church’s®, we bring people together to savor the authentically unique flavor of Texas. We stick to our roots, because it’s the special flavor that makes us who we are today. 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 over seven decades, and it’s not going to change now.

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 jalapeño pepper on the side – George planted the seeds for what would one day become a world-renowned franchise.

Fast-forward to over seven decades of deliciousness and over one billion served, Church’s Chicken now spans the globe with franchises open for business worldwide. Along the way, we’ve had a few new looks, campaigns and leaders – but our commitment to authentic timeless flavor remains the same.

Taste That's Timeless

Today, tomorrow and beyond, we’re proud to build on George W. Church’s legacy every single day. We don’t mass produce, we handcraft. We’re pioneers of timeless flavor. We aren’t afraid of doing things differently because we do things right. That’s what Texas Taste is all about: Striving for something bolder and a lot more delicious in a world full of sameness.
