Buzzy chicken & pickleball venue to join the mix at The Farm in Allen
Pickleball, the hottest casual sports trend going right now, is headed for Allen: Chicken N Pickle, the indoor/outdoor entertainment complex concept that combines restaurant and sports bar with pickleball courts and yard games, is opening a location at The Farm, the buzzy 135-acre mixed-use destination developed by JaRyCo at SH-121 and Alma Road.
According to a release, Chicken N Pickle will open in late 2023, joining other venues including High 5 and The Hub.
JaRyCo president Bruce Heller says in a statement that he was instantly taken by the Chicken N Pickle concept.
“Two years ago when I first heard Chicken N Pickle was coming to DFW, I told our team at Venture Commercial that we need to bring this to Allen and The Farm,” Heller says. "We have been working ever since to make it happen and are glad it worked out. Chicken N Pickle will be great for The Farm and great for the residents of Allen and surrounding communities.”
Founded in Kansas City, MO in 2016, Chicken N Pickle has become a wildly popular destination, good for families, good for young adults, good for corporate gatherings.
They've been in big expansion mode including Texas, with locations in San Antonio, which opened in 2020, and Grand Prairie, which opened in 2021. Another is slated to open in Grapevine in 2023.
Dave Johnson, Founder of Chicken N Pickle founder Dave Johnson says in a statement that "bringing people together over a delicious, wood-fired rotisserie chicken, a cold beverage and some friendly competition can create unifying bonds that ripple throughout the community and beyond."
The menu includes delicious, rotisserie dishes available in four seasonings along with pork and beef sandwiches and their signature hand-cut fries and tots.
