March 20, 2017 // Franchising.com // Toronto, Canada – The Chickery, the Toronto-based “better chicken” franchise, is pleased to announce a franchising deal was recently signed which will bring the innovative fast casual chain’s first restaurant to Western Canada. The agreement is a multi-unit deal for Alberta with real estate options currently being explored in Edmonton with the expectation that the first location will open next winter.
The Chickery is a category leading “better chicken” concept which focuses on healthy and indulgent menu options using both rotisserie and fried chicken. The new locations will serve The Chickery’s newest menu item, Rotisserie Fried Chicken (RFC) along with their full menu which includes their award-winning chicken fingers and an assortment of salads, sandwiches and gourmet sides.
The new franchisee, Bilal Khan, is well connected in the Canadian market and is passionate about bringing healthier chicken options to the underserved fast casual chicken segment. This new deal will allow The Chickery, which began in Toronto, to further expand into Canada.
“I believe the fast casual chicken segment is a category poised for tremendous growth, which is why I was so interested in The Chickery,” said new franchisee Bilal Khan. “The restaurant offers delicious chicken in a great environment with reasonable prices. Based on the success of previous Canadian locations, I’m excited about introducing the concept to the Western Canada market.”
The Chickery currently has three locations in Toronto, ON, a newly-opened location in Guelph, ON, and one location in Washington, D.C. 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 growth.
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 – 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.
