The Golden Story
The Golden Story began in Central Texas in the late 1960's when the concept was created by a former employee of a chicken franchise who believed that there had to be a better way to run a franchise system. The wonderful chicken, created by the development of secret marination and batter mixes, attracted franchise inquires, and by the time the founder sold the chain in 1982, it had grown to a total of 39 restaurants.
In March 1989, Golden Fried Chicken was purchased by an investment group whose involvement was strongly supported by the Golden Fried Chicken franchise community. Since then, the chain has experienced steady growth with new restaurants opening throughout the region, bringing the chain-wide total to 111 units. The partnership with our franchise community also produced joint franchisor/franchisee advisory committees in the areas of purchasing, advertising, operation and standards and construction and facilities.
In September, 1993, the company introduced exciting new enhancements to the Golden Fried Chicken menu as well as the restaurant appearance and thus was born Golden Chick, a concept positioned to propel the Golden chain into the future. The company feels so strongly that Golden Chick is a winning enterprise that in July of 1996 we announced that all future franchises granted to new franchisees would be Golden Chick franchises!
It's been over 40 years since the first Golden Fried Chicken opened in San Marcos, Texas but our goal has never changed -- the success of each franchise owner. With an innovative franchisor/franchisee relationship and a new Golden Chick restaurant serving your community's best fried chicken, the opportunity is Golden indeed!
