Bush's Chicken! is a fast food restaurant serving fried chicken. The company is headquartered in Austin, Texas and has over 35 corporate and franchise locations in Central, South, and West Texas,[1] as well as in Arizona.[2] Fare includes fried chicken, fried okra, fries, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, yeast rolls and macaroni and cheese. Bush's Chicken also purveys sweet and unsweet iced tea by the gallon jug.[3]

The first Bush's Chicken was opened in 1996 in Waco, Texas by Keith Bush.[4] The chain was sold to Hammock Partners, L.L.C. in 2005. The headquarters was moved to Austin that same year. In 2011 Keith Bush's son, Corey Bush, purchased 3 of the chain's restaurants.[5]

In December 2012 the restaurant was hit with a lawsuit. The customer accused the restaurant of serving her husband tainted chicken from which he died.[6] Bush's was later cleared of wrongdoing based on medical evidence presented at the trial. [7]
