Golden Chick was founded in 1967 in San Marcos, Texas by entrepreneur Howard Walker. He called his restaurant Golden Fried Chicken and served fried chicken and fixings to area customers. In 1972, Golden Fried Chicken became a franchise and continued to spread through the U.S. In 1996, as part of a corporate overhaul, the restaurant was renamed Golden Chick. Nearly 100 of the fast fried chicken restaurants are open today.
