Chester’s started in 1952 as a business concept for making donuts with patented fryers. Gradually, donuts were replaced by chicken. In 1956 was born Chester the Chick, a well-known chicken character equipped with cowboy shoes and hat, spurs, a holster and a gun. The concept of double – breading each chicken bite to make it crispy on the outside and tender inside grew popular quickly. However, the company did not start to franchise until 2004. 


Chester’s chicken products are offered in more than 2,000 locations on three continents. Chester’s provides branded foodservice as an addition to an existing business. Entrepreneurs can choose the franchise opportunity that fits their business.

This franchise model offers pre-made meals and requires minimum investment and labor.
