Chester the Chicken made an appearance at the Grundy Market to help with the grand opening activities, which included a ribbon cutting and pictures with local fans.
"We are excited to introduce Chester's to our community," said Satishkumar Patel, owner of the Grundy Market. "After researching several [image-nocss] options for a QSR [quick-serve restaurant] concept, Chester's brand recognition and quality food offerings were the perfect fit. We look forward to expanding our foodservice experience with the Chester's team."
The Grundy Market will now offer Chester's signature menu items such as fried bone-in chicken, chicken tenders, potato wedges and biscuits. The new Chester's location will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner; and will offer customers dine-in or carryout options.
"We are proud to welcome the Grundy Market into the Chester's family and are looking forward to opening another store in the great state of Tennessee," said Kathryn Kudulis, brand manager for Chester's.
