Chicken Express is a regional chain of fast food restaurants concentrated in the Southern United States.


Chicken Express was established in 1988 by Stuart Group Inc. A corporation established by Richard and Nancy Stuart which now does business as "Chicken Express." The concept for the restaurant was born in 1988 in Benbrook, Texas.

Present day[edit]

Chicken Express recently relocated its headquarters to Burleson, Texas.[when?] The expansion comes at a time when both Chicken Express and the city of Burleson are experiencing growth. The restaurant focuses primarily on fried chicken, catfish and chicken tenders, but also serves side dishes. These include fried pickle slices, corn on the cob, apple pie, mashed potatoes, fried okra, gravy, cheese sticks, coleslaw, French fries, corn nuggets, mini poppers, green beans and jalapeños. The chain is also known for their iced tea, which they sell by the gallon.

Chicken Express operates over 190 locations in Texas, Georgia, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. The majority of which are located in Texas, with 176[1] locations. Chicken Express believes that an important element to its franchise system is the owner/operator philosophy.[2]
