February 07, 2017 // Franchising.com // San Jose, CA - The Chickery, the Toronto-based “better chicken” franchise, has recently closed a franchising deal in Northern California. The deal includes 15 units across the San Francisco Bay Area with the first locations set to open in 2017. The franchisees are seasoned, national franchise operators with extensive years of industry expertise.
The Chickery opened in 2012, in Toronto, as a chef-inspired vision for a fast casual “better chicken” concept. The Chickery focuses on providing quality chicken and sides made with real ingredients. The menu includes both rotisserie and fried chicken dishes, along with an assortment of salads, sandwiches, and gourmet sides.
The Northern California locations will serve The Chickery’s newest menu item, Rotisserie Fried Chicken (RFC), which began as an after-hours staff favorite and secret menu item before recently making its way onto the official menu. RFC is slow-roasted and then flash-fried to crispy perfection, making it an instant customer preference.
The Chickery has partnered with Fransmart, the franchise development company behind the explosive growth of restaurant brands like Five Guys Burgers and Fries, The Halal Guys, and Freshii, to support their expansion efforts. “Fransmart is thrilled to be working with such experienced franchisees to bring better chicken to the west coast,” said Dan Rowe, CEO of Fransmart. “We believe that chicken is the next burger and The Chickery offers customers a unique variety of healthy and decadent chicken options in a casual environment.”
The Chickery currently has three locations in Toronto, ON, one location in Washington, D.C., and a newly-opened location in Guelph, ON.
The Chickery is a fast casual restaurant on the cutting edge of the increasingly popular “better chicken” segment, offering real tasty chicken and sides. First and foremost, The Chickery is about premium rotisserie chicken – using all natural, farm-fresh, humanely raised chicken with no added water or flavoring. We use quality authentic ingredients to create recipes designed by a top chef. Not only is our chicken delicious, but our entire menu consists of options you simply won’t find at other chicken restaurants.
