The Red Chickz Signs Their First Bunch of Franchise Deals
The LA-based Nashville Hot Chicken franchise is bringing the heat with new locations in Texas and California
May 12, 2022 // Franchising.com // LOS ANGELES, CA - The Red Chickz is thrilled to announce that within the first 100 days of 2022, they have signed 18 units and have more than a dozen deals in the pipeline in Houston, Texas, as well as densely-populated areas in California such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Long Beach, Fresno, and Orange County.
The Red Chickz will start opening these new locations in the fall of 2022. Having experienced success at their first location in Downtown Los Angeles, The Red Chickz is also expected to expand its presence in its hometown by opening a corporate location in Culver City in early June.
“We could not be happier to expand and share our unique take on Nashville Hot Chicken with more hungry customers in California and Texas,” said Shawn Lalehzarian, Founder of The Red Chickz.
The Red Chickz was founded in 2018 by Shawn Lalehzarian, an Iranian immigrant who learned English by working in many different roles in the restaurant industry. After landing his first senior management position at an international food and beverage company, he realized his dream was to open his own restaurant. Equipped with expert industry knowledge and experience from overseeing food and beverage operations for well-known brands like Wolfgang Puck, Starbucks, Pinkberry, California Pizza Kitchen, and Chili’s, as well as playing a key role in opening 40 different restaurants across North America, he knew exactly what had to be done to make his own business successful.
While exploring what food trends would best fit the Los Angeles community’s changing tastes, Lalehzarian discovered Nashville Hot Chicken, made a trip out there to perfect a recipe, and The Red Chickz was then born. In 2021, Lalehzarian launched the franchise program for the Nashville Hot Chicken brand, showing that Shawn and The Red Chickz are a true example of the American dream.
