Golden Chick announced one of its tenured franchisees, Chris Aslam, has officially signed a 20-unit deal to expand into the Las Vegas market, a first for the Texas-based brand. The rapidly growing quick-service chicken franchise known for its Original Golden Tenders, Golden Roast Chicken, famous hot yeast rolls and new Big & Golden Chicken Sandwich currently operates 192 restaurants across Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Florida and recently entered Louisiana.
“Chris has been a great addition to our franchisee family who runs five highly successful Golden Chick restaurants in North Texas and we could not be more proud to announce that he will now be a major part of our expansion in the Las Vegas market,” said Jim Stevens, president of Golden Chick. “As a Texas-born brand with a 50+ year heritage, we are thrilled to soon be operating in a city as great as Vegas. Chris continues to grow his business and now will own the rights to an additional 20 Golden Chick locations! We are getting closer to our goal of 500 restaurants by 2030.”
Aslam serves as the president of the Dallas Restaurant Association and has been a part of the Golden Chick team for three years. Currently he has a total of five restaurants throughout North Texas.
“I am excited to bring Golden Chick’s goodness to Sin City for the very first time,” says Chris Aslam, CEO of Rock Strategic, LLC. “I fell in love with Golden Chick as a brand before I decided to join the family as a franchisee. I am confident that the community of Las Vegas is going to share that love. My team cannot wait to meet our future guests and serve them for years to come.”
The first location in the Las Vegas market is scheduled to start construction before the end of this year.
