Church’s Chicken has introduced a new modular store prototype designed to speed up development and reduce costs for franchisees. Madison Industries fully constructs the units in one of its four locations.
The modular units speed up development by having all ductwork, lighting, doors and fixtures installed prior to shipment. Other equipment is shipped to the site so the store can be ready for operation within three days of the unit’s arrival.
Site work is completed while construction of the modular unit is underway, another time saver.
The modular store is shipped to the site in two halves.
A crane lifts the modular unit and sets it in place. Within a short period, the two halves are connected together and anchored to the footers. Shortly after, all equipment can be installed.
Church’s Chicken’s first modular store is a franchise unit in Lawrenceville, GA The company unveiled the new prototype to franchisees, company execs and others at an April 1st ceremony. One franchisee signed an agreement for four units.
