These include fried pickle slices, corn on the cob, apple pie, mashed potatoes, fried okra, gravy, cheese sticks, cole slaw, French fries, corn nuggets, mini poppers, green beans and jalapeños. They are 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. With company headquarters in Mineral Wells, Texas, Chicken Express believes that an important element to its franchise system is the owner/operator philosophy.
