7 Little-Known Facts About Texas Chicken Singapore That Makes You Want To Go There Now

Who doesn’t love fried chicken? I’m sure it is hard to resist a fresh piece of fried chicken with its crispy skin and tender meat. Fried chicken is loved by everyone and no matter how sinful it is, you would not be able to stop at just one piece to satisfy your cravings. Besides KFC, McDonald’s or Popeyes, there is another place you should know: Texas Chicken Singapore.

Here are some facts about Texas Chicken Singapore that may fascinate you so much that you will want to eat there soon. Like, tomorrow.

Original Name

The original logo used in the US by Texas Chicken is also that of Church’s Chicken. If you have ever travelled to the US, you’ll know that Texas Chicken cannot be found in the country. Texas Chicken is used by franchises that are outside of the US.

The name Church’s Chicken is replaced with Texas Chicken due to concerns over its association with religion. Rest assured that the name Church’s Chicken is due to it being founded by a man known as George W. Church, Sr.

Who runs Texas Chicken Singapore?

Texas Chicken Singapore is operated in Singapore (duh) as part of a franchise and the rights to using the name Texas Chicken is owned by Select Group, along with other operations such as Peach Garden restaurants, Hong Kong Sheng Kee Desserts and Lerk Thai just to name a few.

Oh, yes, it’s the Select Group that has brilliant cai png, too.

Texas Chicken Singapore’s Mascot

Did you know they have a mascot? McDonald’s has Ronald McDonald while KFC has Colonel Sanders, and Texas Chicken also has a mascot of its own which is called the Texas Chicken, which replaced the previous mascot called Churchie. To be honest, I think the old mascot looks much better than the current one which looks a little…weird.

Relation with Popeyes  

If you have wondered why the fried chicken from Texas Chicken Singapore and Popeyes appear similar, this will shock you. Both Texas Chicken and Popeyes were once owned by the same company.

That’s right, these two fast-food restaurants are run by the same parent company known as AFC Inc., and the owner of Popeyes once owned both brands before selling it to AFC Inc.

The merger of these two brands made headlines back in the day because Texas Chicken, which was the second biggest fried chicken restaurant in the US, was bought over by Popeyes, which was ranked the third biggest fried chicken restaurant in the US.

Texas Chicken Singapore Outlets

If you think that Texas Chicken Singapore dwarfs in comparison to KFC or McDonald’s, you will be surprised to find that Texas Chicken Singapore has many outlets spread across Singapore. The fast-food chain has 12 outlets on our shores and considering the fact that they only arrived in Singapore back in 2010, it is quite impressive that they have managed to expand nationwide in a span of six years.

Texas Chicken Singapore’s Food Quality 

Based on reviews on social media by netizens who have tried Texas Chicken Singapore, the general feedback gathered is that Texas Chicken trumps its competition due to its use of fresh chickens in making their fried chicken, which differs from other brands which use frozen chicken chickens.

Best outlet 

According to one of our writers, the best Texas Chicken Singapore outlet is said to be the one located in Causeway Point which is also something that has garnered similar comments by online netizens.

But of course, each to their own, eh?
