60 YEARS of DELICIOUS, GROUND-BREAKING GROWTH
The year is 1952 – the first Church’s Fried Chicken to Go opens its doors in San Antonio, right across the street from the Alamo. 15 years later, in 1967, the first franchise opens. And we haven’t stopped growing since. Visionary founder George W. Church embraced A PHILOSOPHY OF OPERATIONAL SIMPLICITY: a limited menu, equipment designed to do one thing well, people trained to do the same, and control of operational costs. By cutting the frills common to the restaurant industry at the time, Mr. Church felt he could deliver his product profitably, at low cost, and with A MORE EFFICIENT USE OF CAPITAL AND EMPLOYEES. It’s a philosophy that Church’s® is proud to follow even today.
In 2013, we refined our brand positioning so it appeals more to people who flat out love chicken – or what we call “Chicken Passionates.” These people come from all walks of life and typically choose to eat chicken 4-6 times a week.
And that’s reflected in our brand campaign tagline, HAVE the LOVE.®
It encapsulates everything that goes into our product on a daily basis – the quality, the passion, and the pride. And it’s a sign of our commitment to giving our guests more than just a meal, but a quality experience they can enjoy on their own or with friends and family.
