Ezell's Chicken Franchise


Founded in 1984 in Seattle's Central District, Ezell's Famous Chicken has eleven fast-casual restaurants in locations throughout the Greater Puget Sound area.  Over 36 years later, the locally-owned family business has
grown, while members of the founding family are still active and
involved every day.

The story began when the family moved from Texas to Seattle. Shortly
thereafter, they decided that they’d start a business making chicken
like they used to back home in Texas.

Lewis Rudd and Faye Stephens saw their mission as simple: Provide
FRESH and high-quality chicken and GOOD homemade side dishes, served
with casual and courteous service.

After waiting six years for funding, the family opened the first
store on February 3, 1984 in Seattle’s Central District at 501 23rd
Avenue, across from Garfield High School. Since then, they have built
the family business into a Pacific Northwest icon.
