The incredible rise of chicken chains

Chicken franchises have been popping up across the country at a steady rate, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.


How Starbird's recipe for perfect fried chicken is powering the fast casual for growth

Founder and CEO Aaron Noveshen shares Starbird’s story and hints at some surprises ahead.

The longtime industry executive spearheaded the creation of The Original Hot Chicken by Experiential Brands. And then quickly moved in a new taco concept called Inked Tacos in the same building. But don’t call them a cobrand.

Behind the Menu: Orange Chicken works across every menu category—tenders, wings, salads and sandwiches—a goal of the fast casual’s R&D.

When growing a franchising portfolio, it’s important to be strategic when choosing the right concept.

The chicken sandwich chain’s domestic system sales increased another 13% last year. But check out how much a stand-alone restaurant makes now.

After a successful test last year, Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets are debuting systemwide Monday, prepared with the Colonel’s Original Recipe.

The mildly spicy new protein option can also be added to the Tik Tok-inspired quesadillas with fajita veggies. The grilled chicken is marinated in adobo, morita peppers, ground achiote, pineapple and lime juice.

The Raising Cane's founder hosts another streaming series that starts March 4, this time spotlighting the "secret sauce" of against-the-odds success.

The traditional bone-in chicken chain is testing restaurants with menus pared down to its breakfast and boneless options. That’s the menu it is planning in new markets.
