Church’s Chicken was established on April 17, 1952 by George W. Church, Sr. The chain was named “Church’s Fried Chicken To Go.” It was opened in downtown San Antonio, Texas across from the Alamo. The company’s headquarters are in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Church’s has 1700 locations throughout the United States. The chain also has international locations, which include Bulgaria, Canada, Curacao, Egypt, Georgia, Guyana, Honduras, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, St. Lucia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, St. Kitts, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Ukraine, UAE, Venezuela and Vietnam.
At first, the restaurant sold only chicken on its menu. However, in 1955, the chain eventually added fries and jalapenos. George W. (Bill) Church, Jr. took over the company after his father passed away. By the 1960s, Church’s had over 100 restaurants in seven states. The chain soon became a publically held company and the national headquarters complex opened in San Antonio, Texas. By the 1970s, Church’s joined the New York Stock Exchange. The 1000th restaurant also opened in Phoenix, Arizona in the 1970s. The restaurant’s first franchise outside the United States was opened in Vancouver, Canada.
The chain also operated a hamburger franchise for a short period of time in the eighties. By 1989, Church’s merged with Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits and became the second largest restaurant chain. However, the brands were both marketed as separate chains. The store introduced its new Big Chicken sandwich, which was a big hit. In fact, 1400 sandwiches were sold in one day. A few executive board members include the Chief Executive Officer, Jim Hyatt; EVP and Chief Financial Officer, Dusty Profumo; and EVP US Operations, Joe Christina.
In the 1990s, AFC Enterprises took ownership of the chain. As the new parent company, AFC moved the headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia, more specifically, Sandy Springs. AFC owned and operated the restaurant for 12 years. The chain was then acquired by the private equity firm, Arcapita (formerly known as Crescent Capital Investments). All pork products were then removed from the menu since Arcapita is an Islamic venture capital firm. Beverage products were also switched to Coca Cola for locations in the United States. On August 10, 2009, Fleischer & Lowe bought the chain from Arcapita.
