DELANO, Calif. – An area known for its expansive vineyards and great wine, Delano, Calif. has now become the latest expansion site for Chester’s International.
The fried chicken company chose Akal Travel Plaza in Delano to install its latest store, which officially opened on May 30 in a grand opening ceremony.
“Chester’s, a brand that is well known among many professional drivers and travelers nationwide, was the perfect fit for our Akal Travel Plaza in California,” said Yadvonder Virk, owner and operator at Akal Travel Plaza. “This long-awaited location will allow locals to try this famed chicken right here at home.”
The Akal Travel Plaza site will serve Chester’s lunch and dinner offerings, all from its signature menu options, which include fried bone-in chicken, chicken tenders, potato wedges and biscuits.
“We are excited to be working with a successful operator like Mr. Virk,” said Ted Giles, CEO of Chester’s International. “We are also excited about brining our great tasting, fresh fried chicken to this beautiful part of the country.”
