Ezell’s Famous Chicken was started over 30 years ago as a family-owned and operated business.
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 and the family saw their mission as simple: Provide FRESH and high quality chicken and GOOD homemade side dishes, served with FAST and courteous service. In short, Ezell’s Famous Chicken had to be Fresh, Good and Fast!
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 national franchise.
Since the very beginning, the founders of Ezell’s Famous Chicken knew they had a product that the public would love. Their recipes called for using high quality ingredients and preparing everything fresh daily. All they had to do was get customers to “just try it once,” and they would return for more.
Ezell’s Famous Chicken has become a household name in Seattle and developed a loyal following throughout the Pacific Northwest. Today, there are several locations, a dedicated catering division and two mobile food trucks to serve the growing customer base.
