ATLANTA — Church’s Texas Chicken is expanding in Canada under its new name and brand identity, as well as several countries across the globe.
The chain is expected to open nearly 30 locations in 2021 and 100 locations in the next three years throughout Canada.
“Growth is always challenging, as it’s meant to be,” says Cinthia Nehring-Salm, international director of Marketing. “Last year was a particularly tough year for the world, and it’s no surprise that the food industry was hit especially hard as well. I think I speak for all 23 of our franchise owners here in Canada when I say we’re thankful to be part of a legendary brand that stands the test of time. We could all use a breath of fresh air, so the re-launch of Church’s Texas Chicken and the new, contemporary look couldn’t have come to market at a better time.”
The restaurant’s new design features a black-and-gold Texas Lonestar logo, rustic wood-panel murals, accent lighting, wood-top tables, digital ordering panels, a variety of seating styles and integrated entertainment.
Currently, Canada has two restaurant locations in Edmonton, Alta.; 19 in Ontario including Brampton, East York, Toronto, Mississauga, Markham, Scarborough, Waterloo, Whitby and York; and 16 in British Columbia in Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey, Vancouver and Coquitlam.
Church’s Texas Chicken’s is known for its signature sandwiches, chicken fingers and honey-butter biscuits. Its website now includes the location and hours of operation for each restaurant in Canada.
