While attending the Culinary Institute of America, the most prestigious culinary school globally, Derrick and Kylie discovered their love of Nashville Hot Chicken. Their passion for Nashville ran so deep that they got married in Nashville and named their firstborn, Nash.
Being that you could only get authentic hot chicken in Nashville, Derrick and Kylie set out to change that and make it available outside Nashville. When they heard about Parlor, the first food hall in Kansas City, they didn’t hesitate. They knew that would be the first location of their Nashville Hot Chicken concept, and this is how Mother Clucker was born.
Mother Clucker has become a destination location and an instant favorite to the local community. Derrick and Kylie are ready to take Mother Clucker to a national level and bring the Southern Comfort Zone to every Mother Clucker out there!
The Nashville hot chicken's success has led to new business models for chicken franchises. Many franchises now offer hot chicken sliders, juicy chicken tenders, Nashville hot fries and other menu items to capitalize on the popularity of Nashville's famous flavor. While some opt for a traditional stand alone nashville hot chicken location, others utilize a ghost kitchen model, allowing them to focus on delivery and pick-up. The versatility of the business model has allowed franchises to thrive not just in Nashville but across the country. With creative menu offerings and flexibility on brick-and-mortar locations, there are more opportunities than ever for franchises to stake their claim in the booming hot chicken market.
The initial investment necessary to begin operation of a Mother Clucker® franchised business ranges from $75,000 to $500,000. This includes the initial franchise fee that must be paid to the franchisor or its affiliates. To reserve a territory for multi-unit development there is an upfront fee, and then a discounted fee per additional unit.
