Cowboy Chicken is opening its third California restaurant on Wednesday, October 16 at 5050 N Palm Avenue in Fresno. To mark the occasion, Cowboy Chicken is serving up a Texas-sized helping of hospitality with a Grand Opening Celebration on Oct. 16, including special pricing and the chance to win free tea and free chicken for a year!
“We couldn’t be more excited to spread the legendary wood-fired flavor of Cowboy Chicken to more parts of California,” says owner and operations partner Kevin Roche. “The grand opening celebration is Cowboy Chicken’s way of introducing our mouthwatering menu and community spirit to the people of Fresno; we’re very grateful to be a new addition to the San Joaquin Valley.”
As part of the grand opening festivities, the first 100 guests waiting in line when the new restaurant opens at 11 a.m. will receive a limited design cup that gives them access to free tea for a year. Guests can also enter to win free chicken for a year between Oct. 15 and Oct. 23 liking Cowboy Chicken on Facebook. Winners will be announced on Oct. 24.
Additionally, all Cowboy Chicken locations are taking guests back to 1981 - the year the restaurant first opened – with original menu pricing for the entire day on Oct. 16 (dine-in only). Half chicken with Twice Baked Potaters, Ranchero Beans and a roll are $3.29 and an individual peach cobbler is $1.19. This offer is for those who use the Cowboy Chicken app only and there can be no substitutions or changes.
TEXACAL Foods owners and operations partners Kevin Roche and Phil Fontes joined with Cal Capitol Investment Group’s Daniel and Doug Shaffer to bring the growing Cowboy Chicken brand to the Golden State. Roche, an industry veteran and California native, experienced Cowboy Chicken in Texas while at lunch with a friend and instantly fell in love with the great food and the friendly atmosphere. TEXACAL Foods and Cowboy Chicken have signed the largest franchise agreement to date, with 30 Cowboy Chicken locations planned across California.
Cowboy Chicken Fresno is located at 5050 N Palm Avenue in Fig Garden Village. The new 2,600-square foot restaurant centers on a large, wood-burning rotisserie where guests can view the chickens roasting from the rustic-meets-modern dining area. The restaurant seats up to 50 and serves lunch and dinner daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Cowboy Chicken serves all-natural, hormone-free rotisserie chickens that are hand-seasoned in store, marinated for 24 hours and then slowly roasted for two hours over a real wood-burning fire. Other dishes include signature sour cream tomatillo chicken enchiladas, abundant scratch-made sides such as Twice Baked Potaters, Baked Mac & Cheese, Ranchero Beans and seasonal cobblers baked in-house daily.
Hearty and healthy dishes are available during lunch and dinner for dine-in, take out, catering and delivery. On-the-go diners can order on the Cowboy Chicken app, available through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, which allows guests to order ahead, pay with their phone at checkout and earn rewards.
