Stuart Group, Inc., doing business as Chicken Express, (“Chicken Express”) is a Texas corporation formed by Richard and Nancy Stuart. The brand was started by the Stuarts after they spent over a decade as franchisees of another quick service restaurant business.

The first Chicken Express franchise store was opened in 1990.

Today there are more than 100 locations spread across four states.

Chicken Express believes that an important element to its franchise system is the owner/operator philosophy. When an operator of a restaurant is also the owner, then he tends to pay particular attention to all of the details required for serving high quality food, with wonderful customer service at reasonable prices. In furtherance of this philosophy, Chicken Express seeks the finest, hardest working individuals to open new franchise locations across the Southwest.

The restaurant, located at 2250 Texas Avenue in Bridge City is open seven days a week from 10:30 a.m. until 10 p.m.  They offer catering, call-in orders, drive through and dine in.
