Find a Golden Chick

History & Philosophy

Our History

At Golden Chick we have almost 50 years’ experience in serving an exceptional product to our guests in a fast and friendly environment. Our chain began in 1967 in San Marcos, Texas. Serving great chicken to millions of people is our passion. We continue to quietly make people happy and also earn a respectable profit. Further, we practice what we preach so we don’t just dictate to franchisees how they should run the business; rather, we also operate our own Golden Chick restaurants, so we have firsthand knowledge of your issues and potential opportunities. In fact, we have company officers who are also Golden Chick Franchisees.

The Golden Philosophy

Many times franchisees sign on to a huge national chain only to lose the personal contact with key members of the management of their franchisor. At Golden Chick we are more like a family than a giant corporation. We are not extravagant in our spending. Our headquarters are not lavish and there is no corporate jet, and management levels will be familiar with you and your restaurant. At Golden Chick, our success depends on our franchisees. As a franchisee you are not a number to us and our steady, measured growth highlights this fact. That’s why we go the extra mile by being a “Full Service Franchisor”.
