This week, Churchâ€™s Chicken announces a new restaurant opening in the Baytown Texas I-10 Travel Plaza.
Online PR News – 04-March-2016 – Atlanta, GA – Churchâ€™s ChickenÂ®, announced a new store opening this week along one of the most highly traveled highways in the U.S. The new location, which will be the 1,131st restaurant in the domestic Churchâ€™sÂ® network, will be inside the I-10 Travel Plaza at 16151 I-10 East in Baytown, TX. With an average daily traffic count of more than 50,000 to 85,000 passenger vehicles along the I-10 corridor connecting the U.S. East Coast and West Coast, the new location is a big strategic win for Churchâ€™s and its franchisee Khandakar Alam of Triple Jâ€™s Fried Foods, Inc.
â€śThere truly is no place like home,â€ť said Bill Schreiber, Vice President of Global Business Development at Churchâ€™s Chicken. â€śWe were founded 64 years ago here in Texas and have been serving up our iconic fried chicken and honey-butter biscuits to guests of this great state and all over the world ever since.â€ť
Within the greater Houston market, the new Baytown location is in good company. The Houston-metro area is home to 140 Churchâ€™s Chicken locations; which ranks in the top five in market-size for the brand. This restaurant will feature the freshly reimaged Churchâ€™s design. The STAR Initiative Design Package, coming to a Churchâ€™s Chicken near you, boasts sleek, contemporary seating arrangements, modern architectural elements and LED lighting. The majority of Churchâ€™s restaurants system-wide are investing in this facelift over the next few years. While the aesthetics may differ, guests can still expect the same quality hand-battered fried chicken, signature honey-butter biscuits and savory sides that Churchâ€™s is known for around the world.
â€śThe growth weâ€™ve seen and continue to see in this market is simply remarkable,â€ť said Schreiber. â€śEnthusiastic franchisees with the passion to grow, a smart eye towards positioning, and love for the brand is what we look for, and thatâ€™s what we have here.â€ť
