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.

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 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 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.
