THE SCOOP: Church’s Chicken lovers praying franchise issues are resolved | Business Weekly

It took quite a while for Freeport to get its Church’s Fried Chicken restaurant back after Hurricane Harvey collapsed its roof and the city forced it to close. The wait proved to be worth it when the old place was gutted and a new one put in its place.

Those who want to go to Church’s in Freeport, West Columbia and Alvin right now are out of luck, though, as they are marked “temporarily closed” on the chain’s website. It appears the problem is connected to the franchisee, listed on county tax records as BAH Texas, which is based in Atlanta.
