Dave’s Hot Chicken Inks New Franchise Agreement to Expand Its Presence in the Lone Star State

Seasoned Multi-Unit Operators Sign Deal for Five Stores Throughout Hidalgo, Cameron and Webb Counties in Texas

July 13, 2022 // Franchising.com // HIDALGO, Texas - Dave’s Hot Chicken announced today it has inked a franchise agreement with Najib and Tarek Haidar to open their first five locations throughout South Texas.

“This latest signed agreement with Najib and Tarek further strengthens our presence in the state,” said Bill Phelps, CEO of Dave’s Hot Chicken. “Now, we’ll be able to reach new markets in the southern portion of the Lone Star State and introduce our craveable product to even more legions of fans.”

“We were first introduced to Dave’s Hot Chicken when we checked out their Instagram page. As soon as we saw how delicious the food looked in photographs, our interest was piqued immediately,” said Najib Haidar. “After trying the food, we knew the hype behind Dave’s was real and that we had to get involved with the brand through franchising. There really isn’t anything like Dave’s Hot Chicken available in South Texas, and I think it’ll be an instant hit with the local communities.”

The Haidar family’s operating group owns 24 IHOP and Walk On’s Sports Bistreaux locations throughout Texas, and this multi-unit ownership experience will translate well into operating their Dave’s Hot Chicken restaurants.

Founded by Arman Oganesyan and classically-trained chef Dave Kopushyan and two friends in early 2017, Dave’s Hot Chicken initially opened as a parking lot pop-up, with lines quickly wrapping around the block. Since then, the brand has exploded in popularity and now has over 60 locations open in the United States and Canada.

Specializing in hot chicken tenders and sliders, with spice levels ranging from “No Spice” to “Reaper,” each restaurant also serves sides of house-made Kale Slaw, creamy Mac & Cheese and crispy Fries or Cheese Fries.
