The first restaurant was in 1967 in San Marcos, Texas under the name Golden Fried Chicken. Franchising started in 1972. A decade later, the franchise grew to a number of restaurants primarily in Central Texas, with a focus on cities like Austin, San Antonio and Waco. Eventually it expanded outside to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Bryan, Texas/College Station and then crossed the state line into Oklahoma. There are currently 60 stores operating in Texas & Oklahoma.
Since 1985, the chain's flagship menu item has been its chicken strips, trademarked as Golden Tenders. In 1996, Golden Fried Chicken abbreviated into its present name Golden Chick.
Famous quotes containing the word golden:
“I turned my head and saw the wind,
Not far from where I stood,
Dragging the corn by her golden hair,
Into a dark and lonely wood.”
—William Henry Davies (18711940)
