Texas-born Church’s Chicken now comes in retro-cool Go-Box family meal packages

You’ll quarter no argument from us about whether anyone’s fried chicken can best your grandmother’s buttermilk-brined version. But dammit, sometimes she may not be up to the task of whipping out her cast iron skillet to fry you up a batch to take home.

That’s why we’re glad we have options. And the good folks at Church’s Chicken, who sent us some mighty fine crisp-fried birds and biscuits to cap off our weekend. But what really got us clucking was Church’s new retro “Go Box” packagings, which handsomely nods to the company’s mid-century San Antonio roots.

Church’s rolled out completely re-vamped menu boards across the country in July to promote their new “Family Values” deals designed to feed 6 or more. Those new boxes hold plenty of chicken, sides and honey butter biscuits. And the dude on the Go Box? His name is Churchie, and he dates back to Church’s founding in San Antonio in 1952.
