Bush’s Chicken is a small fast food restaurant serving fried chicken. The company is headquartered in Austin, Texas and has over 60 corporate and franchise locations in Central, South, and West Texas. The first Bush’s Chicken was opened in 1996 in Waco, Texas by Keith Bush. 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.
Menu items include fresh fried chicken (using a special marinade), fried okra, French fries, mashed potatoes, white cream gravy, green beans, creamy cole slaw, corn on the cob, jalapeno poppers, freshly baked yeast rolls, and macaroni and cheese. Bush’s Chicken also sells sweet and unsweet iced tea by the gallon jug. Most locations have a dining room. Customers can also order food through a multi-line drive through system that utilizes car hops.
The Franchisor rights were purchased back in 2015 and since grown 20 units in the last 18 months. The company has 36 stores slated for 2017.
