THE EZELL'S STORY

Ezell's Famous Chicken was started over 20 years ago, and is a family-owned and operated business.

The story began when the family, moved to Seattle from Texas. Shortly thereafter together 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 high-quality chicken and GOOD homemade side dishes, served with FAST courteous service. In short, Ezell's Famous Chicken had to be Fresh, Good and Fast!

It took six years of waiting for funding, but finally on February 3, 1984, the family, opened the first store in Seattle's Central District at 501-23rd Avenue, across from Garfield High School. Since then they've been living their dream of owning and operating a successful chain of fried chicken restaurants.

They 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 them to "just try it once," and they would return for more.

Ezell's Famous Chicken has since become a household name in Seattle and throughout the Pacific Northwest with many loyal customers. It currently operates 7 locations throughout the Pacific Northwest, and the company is actively expanding to bring a location near you!
