The newest outlet for Church’s Chicken franchise is coming to Lacey at 7742 Martin Way East. 

This is the first location for Church’s in Thurston County, joining restaurants in Lakewood, Federal Way and Des Moines.

Franchisee Nainder Verma of Verma Enterprises LLC said, “The citizens of the greater Seattle area have been very receptive to the brand, and I’m thrilled to be continuing my growth with Church’s.” This is his first ground-up new outlet, after acquiring two of the others in 2012.

Founded in San Antonio, TX in 1952 by George W. Church, Church’s Chicken is one of the largest quick-service restaurant chicken chains in the world.
