Chick N Max, a Wichita, Kan.-based fast-casual franchise specializing in almond wood-smoked chicken and wings, sandwiches and fried chicken tenders, is preparing to open its first Houston area location in the Market at Willis Shopping Center at 12312 Interstate 45 N. and has signed a lease for a second location in Fulshear. Aaron Johnson, a veteran of the franchise industry with brands including Bennigan’s, Smash Burger and Mod Pizza, signed a development agreement last fall to open as many as 25 stores in the Houston area.
Expected to open in June, the 3,000-square-foot Fulshear restaurant will be in the Market at Cross Creek Ranch at FM 1463 and Fulshear Bend Drive. Negotiations are underway for a location in The Woodlands. Chick N Max offers 10 flavors of sandwiches, including chicken and waffles, the smoked chicken BLT and the sriracha hot honey. Sides include onion rings, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and smoked white beans.
