Church’s Chicken is celebrating the most American of comfort foods—fried chicken—in honor of National Fried Chicken Day on Thursday. Church’s is world-renowned for its 65 years of freshly prepared hand-battered and doublebreaded chicken and fresh-baked honey-butter biscuits made from scratch daily, so it’s no surprise the holiday is one of the brand’s favorites.
National Fried Chicken Day is observed annually by fried chicken lovers across the country who celebrate this American favorite at their nearest Church’s location, at home or at neighborhood gatherings. National Fried Chicken Day pays homage to the comfort this meal brings to Americans, as well as its continuing growth in popularity. Fried chicken, along with other soul food and Southern cuisine, continues to trend across the country, as evidenced by its steady growth in sales. Fast-food chicken sales growth has outpaced burger chains annually by more than double due in part to the meal’s exceptional value and delicious flavor.
Perhaps no fast-food chicken chain is better positioned to celebrate National Fried Chicken Day than Church’s, which has been delivering delicious, wholesome fried chicken, biscuits and home-style sides for great value since being founded by George W. Church, Sr., who perfected his fried chicken recipe using only quality ingredients and exceptional technique, 65 years ago in 1952. “National Fried Chicken Day is our time to shine,” says Kevin Houston, Senior Director Research & Development at Church’s Chicken. “It’s a day for us to showcase the passion that we put into making great chicken experiences that guests love every day. This philosophy continues to guide our mission to become the global franchisor of choice.” Occurring soon after the July 4th holiday, National Fried Chicken Day is the perfect way to keep the celebration going into the week.
“I believe Church’s serves the best fried chicken out there,” continues Houston. “We hope our loyal fans, as well as fans-in-the-making, will visit their Church’s location to celebrate National Fried Chicken Day with us.”
