Naked Chicken Franchise


Founded in 1981 in the community of Bethpage, New York, (as Pudgie's Famous Chicken), George Sanders developed his secret chicken recipe and skinning process. The concept quickly spread throughout Long Island and by 1989 had become a franchise company. In 2007, Trufoods LLC acquired the Pudgie's brand. After exhaustive research, Trufoods LLC created the most unique, relevant and quality-driven chicken brand in the quick service restaurant industry, Naked Chicken Co. With the introduction of GRILLED and more "portable" skinless chicken products such as tenders, salads and sandwiches, our concept is more viable and appeals to a broader customer base. Trufoods' success is based on our ability to create new opportunities, build customer base through aggressive and effective marketing, reduce costs and improve the overall management of the brand.
