Houston TX Hot Chicken Opens Four More Utah Locations in 2024

February 28, 2024 // Franchising.com // LEHI, UTAH - Get ready for a heat wave, Utah. Houston TX Hot Chicken will have six locations across the Beehive State come summer 2024. The next location opening is at 1085 E. Main Street in Lehi (next to Via 313), which will host its grand opening celebration on Saturday, March 2 from noon to 3 p.m

The Grand Opening festivities will be revved up with an Exotic Car Meet, complimentary sandwiches to the first 100 guests in line, a $500 “Munch Madness” Food Challenge, and a $1000 “Houston, We Have a Problem” Spice Challenge Contest (it’s 2M SHU, so get those waivers ready!).

HHC is an eatery known for its hot chicken sandwiches, tenders, salads, soup, waffle shakes, loaded fries, and seven signature sauces. HHC’s décor is modern with a splash of Vegas and houses one-of-a-kind artwork by Donovan Fitzgerald.

Five of the six HHC Utah locations will be owned and operated by the franchise group Running Roosters LLC, which is led by two father-son partnerships: Chad and Carson Curtis, and Dan and Taylor Watkins. Chad and Dan have more than 18 years of experience in the restaurant franchise industry, and their sons have been involved in the business for the last six years - offering the perfect “yin and yang” leadership style of both experience and youth.

The Running Roosters team first tasted HHC in Las Vegas in 2022 and knew instantly they wanted to join the brand family. They opened their first franchise in February 2023 at Traverse Mountain in Lehi, and nearly a year later, they opened the Riverton location at Mountain View Village. These two powerhouse units are being followed by locations at Lehi Main Street, Fashion Place Mall, and downtown SLC. The St. George, Utah market will be owned and operated by franchisee Cody Steck.

HHC has catered to both authenticity and commercial appeal. With its seven signature spices - ranging from no spice to honey butter to the famous Houston, We Have A Problem - there’s a spice level for everyone at Houston TX Hot Chicken.

Chad and Dan are the perfect franchisees to lead HHC in Utah. They are experienced restauranters, and they understand and represent our brand so well. We couldn’t ask for better partners.” Edmond Barseghian said.
