Dallas — Golden Chick is kicking off 2021 with innovation in restaurant design and development by introducing the franchise’s very first modular constructed building. The first restaurant is scheduled to be installed in Saginaw, Texas, this month with an expected opening in March, with two more installations in the pipeline for the first half of the year in Snyder and Refugio, Texas.
“This new model will allow our franchisees to go-to-market quicker than ever before, while reducing the overall development and operational costs,” says Jim Stevens, president of Golden Chick. “The introduction of our first modular constructed restaurant is just one of many exciting announcements we have planned for this year. We are continuing to expand to new locations and introduce new menu items — you never know what we have up our sleeves. We are thankful for our partners that helped get us here and look forward to continuing the momentum we established last year.”
Using modular construction for restaurant development is not only cost effective, saving 10% to 15% overall, but allows for consistency and efficiency with the building process taking approximately 5 weeks to complete. The building is constructed off-site, then transported to the final destination for completion. Golden Chick’s modular restaurant design will feature a drive-thru as well as an area for online order pickups in a 1,920-square-foot space. A 1,400-square-foot model without interior seating is also currently in development and will be equipped with a drive-thru and walk-up order window. According to Larry Nelson, Golden Chick’s vice president of development, the plan to implement modular construction into Golden Chick’s system has been the works for a few years.
Founded in Texas in 1967, Golden Chick is a family-oriented, quick-service restaurant. With dine-in, drive-thru, catering and home delivery service capabilities, the Golden Chick restaurant chain has 200 locations throughout Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Florida and Louisiana.
