Umatilla, OREGON (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
The 35-foot cowboy isn’t the only landmark found at the Columbia Harvest Foods in downtown Umatilla. The store is now home to the first Champs Chicken® location in Oregon.
Champs Chicken, a business-within-a business hot food franchise program, is famous for their quality chicken tenders, whitefish, and signature sides. With locations at over 30 Harvest Food stores in the northwest, Champs Chicken was a natural fit for the family-owned and operated supermarket.
“Champs Chicken has a proven track record with the Harvest Foods chain,” manager Calvin Meade said. “Champs Chicken provides a flexible, quality program that accommodates our specific needs as an independent operator.”
Headquartered in Holts Summit, Missouri, Champs Chicken has experienced rapid growth since launching in 1999. Started by Shawn and Julie Burcham out of their home, Champs Chicken’s unique flavoring and dedication to customers were a sure recipe for success. Now with over 520 locations in 30 states, Champs Chicken has no plans of slowing down. In addition to adding more locations in the northwest, the company is eyeing further expansions throughout the upper mid-west and southern regions.
“Our next goal is to reach 5,000 stores and be a leader in the foodservice industry,” Shawn Burcham, CEO and president of Champs Chicken, said. “We’re excited to be working with Columbia Harvest Foods and we look forward to serving the entire Umatilla community.”
